Abstract

In modern times Armenian is found in two varieties, Eastern Armenian, the official language of the Armenian Republic, also spoken in Nagorno Karabagh and in north-western Iran, and Western Armenian, originally mostly found in what is now the north-eastern part of Turkey, but now mainly scattered around the Armenian diaspora with considerable bilingual populations in Lebanon, Syria, Israel, France, Canada and the USA.
