One of the best ways to endear yourself to
someone (like a neighbor, school mate, or business associate) is to speak a few words
in his/her native tongue. We have put together a collection of common terms and phrases
in the Armenian language1 for anyone who wishes to learn and communicate,
albeit at a very basic level, with Armenians in your community.
1 With Armenian communities spread all over the world, a few different dialects of the
Armenian language have emerged. The most common of these dialects are Western and Eastern Armenian.
Most of the terms and phrases in these examples are based on the Western Armenian dialect, which is mostly spoken
by Diasporan Armenians.
