Why is the Gemara written in Aramaic?


Besides for Sefer Daniel and Onkelos, all sefarim are written mostly in Lashon HaKodesh. Why did the Amoraim decide to write the Gemara mainly in Aramaic?

Thank you


Aramaic was the common language that was spoken then, therefore the Gemara was written in that language.

Best wishes
