Armenian Language Statistics/Facts

The Armenian language belongs to the Indo-European group of languages. It is estimated that approximately 6.7 million people speak Armenian, which is the official language of the Republic of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. The latter province is not recognized officially as an independent republic. Armenian native speakers also live in Turkey, Ukraine, Poland, Russia, Romania, Cyprus, Georgia, the United State of America and Iran.

Armenian is most influenced by Latin, Greek, Syriac, and Parthian. A number of words in the Armenian language are derived from similar words of the Old Persian language. This denotes that both languages have common Indo-European origin.

Armenian Dialects

Today, Armenian is represented by two main dialects: Eastern Armenian and Western Armenian. This is an officially accepted dialect system. However, one more classification compiled in 1909 by Hrachia Adjarian (an Armenian linguist) should be considered. Its main distinctive feature is filtering the Armenian dialects considering the use of particular present and imperfect indicative particles.

Armenian Language History

The Armenian language is rooted in the 5th century AD and did not change much up to the 19th century.

Armenian history covers an unbelievable time-period of about 5 thousand years. The country of Armenia saw Kings and dynasties; it held titles of Kingdom and Empire. Armenia refers to Armenak, the son of Hayk, who is identified with the Sun-God Orion. Hayk was the first name of the country.

An important fact in the history of Armenia is that it was the first country that accepted Christianity as its official religion in 301 AD. The people of this country believe that they are direct descendants of Noah who survived the world flood. Moreover, there is a well-known hypothesis based on Genesis that Noah’s boat landed on Mount Ararat.

During the Bronze Age, great kingdoms appeared and one by one replaced each other, including the Hittite Empire, Mitanni, Hayasa-Azzi, Nairi and the Kingdom of Ararat (1000-600 BC). When Alexander the Great died, and his monarchy including Armenia was separated into many states, Armenia gained its independence. However, the country fell under a strong influence from Rome. Later, Armenia also fell under the rule of Byzantine, Persia and Islamic countries.

In 1064, the Kingdom of Cilicia was founded and existed up to 1375. After that, the country was separated by the Russian and the Ottoman Empires. This period is known for a harsh genocide.

In the Middle Ages (11th-15th centuries), Middle Armenian came into daily use, replacing ancient ‘Grabar’ or Classical Armenian. What is noticeable about this language variant – it borrowed many words from Arabic and Turkish. Gradually, it evolved into Modern (New) Armenian, which is spoken now.

Armenia gained its sovereignty as the Democratic Republic of Armenia. After the USSR collapse in 1991, it became the country we now know. In the early 1990s, Armenian was taught in schools together with Russian, but after the Soviet Union collapsed Armenian became the only educational language. The Russian-speaking schools in Armenia were closed.
