??????? – Facts about the Armenian language
Armenian is the official language of the Republic of Armenia. It is estimated that there are between 6 to 7 million speakers of Armenian worldwide with 3.5 million located in the former Soviet Union republic of Armenia.
Armenian is from the Indo-European family of languages and among living languages today is thought to be most closely related to Greek. The Armenian language can be split into three dialects groups. One is classified as classical Armenian which dates back to the fifth century and is used by the Armenian Church. The other two modern groups can be broadly divided into Eastern and Western groups of dialects. Eastern dialects are spoken primarily in Armenia and Iran with communities being more recently established in North America. Western dialects were traditionally most widely spoken in Anatolia, Turkey, until the Armenian genocide in 1915-1916 in Turkey. As a result of such historical events, many Western dialects died out while there was mass emigration of Western dialect speakers to many different locations in the world. Today, communities of Western dialect speakers can be found throughout Europe, North and South America as well as Australia.
Armenian has its own unique alphabet. Created by Saint Mesrop Mashtots circa AD 405, it is thought to have been loosely based on the Greek alphabet. It is written horizontally from left to right and consists of thirty-eight letters (six vowels and thirty-two consonants).
