This is an introductory textbook for Classical Armenian consisting of 20graded chapters, an introduction focusing on the phonetics of the language, agrammatical appendix, and a glossary.

Each of the 20 chapters deals with one specific grammatical topic withexplanations using English examples as a point of contrast with the Armenianforms. From chapter 3 on every chapter ends with an unedited excerpt from theArmenian Bible, specifically from the four Gospels. The length of the excerptsnaturally gets longer as the learner progresses through the book and allexcerpts are well-known stories, such as the story of John the Baptist and thestory of the Prodigal Son. The grammatical appendix discusses eight extragrammatical topics which occur rarely enough to be excluded from the main partof the book. Finally a glossary contains all the words from the readings inchapters 3 through 20.
