Specialists from Armenia and Diaspora Seek Ways To Converge Western and Eastern Armenian

A two-day linguistics conference entitled “Issues of Convergence of Western Armenian andEastern Armenian” is currently underway in Yerevan, with linguists, literary scholars, and other specialists from various fields in Armenia and the Diaspora in attendance.

Minster of Diaspora Hranush Hagopian opened the conference on Wednesday by stating that the Armenian Genocide was a major blow to the Armenian language, causing it to dissociate from the Armenian homeland, spread around the world, and became eradicated, resulting in the loss of many dialects.

“Among the irrevocable losses we suffered because of the Armenian Genocide are our language losses, we have a lot to do to overcome these losses. Dozens of Western dialects were lost, standard Western Armenian became deprived of its historical homeland and opportunity for development. Western Armenian needs great support because it carries out the important function of Armenian identity preservation in the Diaspora,” Hagopian said.

“Today the convergence of Western Armenian and Eastern Armenian is very relevant as there are certain regulation issues to the enrichment of the language and word groups. The relevance of these issues becomes more exacerbated as the geography of language use and the language users themselves gradually reduce,” said Yuri Suvarian, member of the National Academy of Sciences.

According to Hagopian, a package of proposals is expected to be formed by the end of the conference. The proposals will be voted on and the most optimal variant will be chosen.
