Subtitle: Modern Eastern Armenian
Written By: Jasmine Dum-Tragut

Series Title: London Oriental and African Language Library 14
Description:

This grammar of Modern Eastern Armenian gives a precise and explicit
description of the Eastern Armenian language of the Republic of Armenia. It
covers not only the normative tradition but, more importantly, also
describes the colloquial language as it is used in Armenia today. With
regard to methodological approach and terminology it fully meets the
demands of modern general linguistics and typology. This grammar will be of
interest not only to the specialised readership of descriptive and
comparative linguists, of typologists and of armenologists, but to all
those who would like to acquaint themselves with linguistic data from
living Armenian. It will also be of use to students wishing to learn Modern
Eastern Armenian and to lecturers in Modern Eastern Armenian language courses.
