Galilean Aramaic (increasingly referred to as Jewish Palestinian Aramaic) is a Western dialect of Aramaic.

The term Galilean dialect generally refers to the form of Jewish Palestinian Aramaic spoken by people in Galilee during the late Second Temple period, for example at the time of Yeshua and the disciples, as distinct from a Judean dialect spoken in Jerusalem.

The Aramaic of Yeshua, as recorded in the Gospels, gives various examples of Aramaic phrases. The New Testament notes that the pronunciation of Peter gave him away as a Galilean to the servant girl at the brazier the night of Yeshua’s trial (see Matthew 26:73 and Mark 14:70).
