Product Description

Synopsis

Western Armenian is the language spoken by most of the 7 million Diaspora Armenians who live outside their historic homeland. Western Armenian speakers form the majority of Armenian spoken in the US, Iran, and the Middle East. The languiage has helped to preserve a unified Armenian sense of identity and common cultural heritage throughout the world. This guide, an extension of that cultural heritage, offers insight into the historical roots of the Diaspora and provides an invaluable reference to the language itself. It contains a resourceful two-way dictionary, an informative grammar section, and a collection of travel-orientated phrases. Armenian has its own unique alphabet, but to facilitate pronunciation, the book uses a commonsense Roman transliteration system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have in your library 4 Sep 2006
By Artak
Format:Paperback
Very good, finally there is a dictionary for Western Armenians, plus a phrasebook, which is so helpful when you are trying to speak and understand the language. The book has a cool design and also has couple of pages of none political history of Armenia, positive and negative included!

Definately must have..

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is great 22 Jan 2007
By Dana K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There aren't very many options for learning Western Armenian, but this book is great. I also purchased "Vocabulearn Western Armenian: Level 1 (VocabuLearn)" which was helpful for hearing pronounciation, but doesn't come anywhere near the usefulness of this book. This book includes an introduction to Armenian culture, as well as an introduction to grammer. Many other options translate from English to Armenian -- which doesn't help unless you can read Armenian. This books translates into phonetically spelt English - it's great. The book has both the dictionary that permits you to look up words, as well as the phrasebook with familiarizes you with common phrases. The phrasebook is organized into useful areas like "etiquette" or "food and drink" etc. This book is an excellent buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful 8 Jun 2009
By Ally C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book to impress my new in-laws. I am also part Armenian but never spoke the language. This book was very helpful to me, precisely why others have indicated: the dictionary is in English letters. It's very useful, easily fits into my purse, and has useful phrases at the end of it. Interspersed throughout the dictionary are cultural facts and tidbits that help provide insight. To get started speaking Armenian, I would recommend this as a reference and the Pimsleur CDs to help pronounciation and to give insight on how conversations are structured. Trust me, my mother in law is thrilled.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful small dictionary of Western Armenian 19 Nov 2013
By Carol - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is a small dictionary, with Armenian words spelled in phonetic English instead of Armenian script. But it includes a lot of very useful words and phrases. The dictionary is ok, the phrasebook, with its topics, could be very useful in speaking Armenian. However, it is not a large dictionary. For the price, it is exceptional.
