The purpose of this paper is to make available further linguistic data of the Jewish Neo-Aramaic dialect from Zakho (Iraq). The sixteen nursery rhymes and the baby words were collected by the author among his immediate relatives who now live in Jerusalem. The linguistic material is analysed grammatically and etymologically in an appended glossary.
