  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Galeed 
  heap  of  witness,  the  name  of  the  pile  of  stones  erected  by  Jacob 
  and  Laban  to  mark  the  league  of  friendship  into  which  they 
  entered  with  each  other  (Gen.  31:47,  48).  This  was  the  name 
  given  to  the  heap"  by  Jacob.  It  is  Hebrew,  while  the  name 
  Jegar-sahadutha,  given  to  it  by  Laban,  is  Aramaic  (Chaldee  or 
  Syriac).  Probably  Nahor's  family  originally  spoke  Aramaic,  and 
  Abraham  and  his  descendants  learned  Hebrew,  a  kindred  dialect, 
  in  the  land  of  Canaan.
