Title: The Phonology of Armenian
Written By: Bert Vaux
Series Title: The Phonology of the World's Languages

This study presents the first contemporary linguistic treatment of Armenian, an Indo-European language whose distinct dialects range geographically from Poland to India. The book documents a rich linguistic (and literary) history dating from the fourth-century translation of the Bible into Classical Armenian. Data are drawn from Classical, Middle, and Standard Eastern and Western Armenian, and from the author's fieldwork on non-standard dialects.
