Featured Article: Armenian Language Lessons
This section has a free Eastern Armenian Lessons online course, which will enable English speakers to learn Armenian at their own pace.
The specific version of Armenian which you will be learning here is reformed Eastern Armenia. Eastern Armenian is spoken in Armenia, Russia and Iran. If you need to learn Western Armenian, this course would give you a base of Armenian knowledge, but it will more likely just confuse you. A project to make a Western Armenian version is underway at the bottom of this page.
The reformed spelling is used in the Republic of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. The reform was done under Soviet rule and is not followed by other Eastern Armenian speaking communities, like the Armenians of Iran, nor by Western Armenian speakers. All of these use the classic spelling.
Searching tip - If your search does not turn up results for an Armenian word, try spelling (transliterating) it differently. For example, for Jermoog, try Jermuk, or for Ampert, try Amberd. I generally use standardized Eastern Armenian transliterations. For spellings of peoples names, especially western Armenian there is no magic formula. You can have Manugian, Manougian, Manoogian, Manukyan, Manoukyan, Manukian, etc.
About the articles - Articles about things Armenian should tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the subject, such as the duduk or Kirk Kerkorian. Articles about things not Armenian are here only to give the Armenian angle, or connection. The Bob Dole page will therefore only contain letters, references, information on his activities related to Armenian(ns).
