Why is the Gemara written in Aramaic?

Question:

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

Answer:

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

Best wishes
