It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep.

covers not only the normative tradition but, more importantly, also
describes the colloquial language as it is used in Armenia today. With

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.
