Gellamelan,

I disgree with you on the whole "Hayastantsi" stuff. Everything we do is correct and officially Armenian because we live in Armenia. The Russian words we use come from the natural sythesis of Armenian language with other languages. So, learn to speak proper Armenian smile.gif

I agree with you on Arpa being the Queen of the forum though ...

Thank you Azat.
I may be the arqa but you certainly are the arqayits arqa.

Go ahead boys and girls. Fire away, as long a you still have ammunition, that is, you still remember some Armenian words.
Sooner than we know, we will ALL be speaking like this; Vallah aga, dzo chem haskanum xi k'ses gor. And a few years down we will be saying; Yo! Armen, que passa? Inch ka chka amigo?

Arpa, you know .. when you fire you should naturally expect to get fired on.

What's bad about speaking like that. It will be a modern Armenian language. I am all for the modern, progressive, cutting edge stuff. People who are against innovelties are retards, backword thinking, closeminded anti-reformists. And Armenian will sound realy good with the whole melodic Arabic and Spanish mixture. So don't act like a sissi Queen.

Armen it is one thing for a language to evolve (which I am all for) and another to get it mutilated(Yo! Armen, que passa? Inch ka chka amigo?) which I am 100% against

Azat jan, but "evolved" and "mutilated" are descriptions that can be viewed as subjective. So, I think everything the Armenian language accepts is progressive and we should never impose and artificial limits and let the language exercise its freedom of choice.

Emmm ... NO. We tend to adopt "everything" without much thought, thus if we allow, our language will become a garbage can. Come on, we need some resistance.

Why do you call it a garbage can? I call it an evolved and free language.

You are so wrong. What is Armenian language anyway. Isen't it a sythesis of some words from different tribes.

Actually, the world would be better off wholesale if we would have only English. And we would not pay money to millions all those language teachers. Moreover, I think linguists are paid for nothing. They don't produce food or cloths, cars or sex. Who needs these people? What's their good anyway? This whole language affair is useless.

When did the Beirutsis become such linguists. By now their Armenian is probably 25% Turkish, 25% Arabic, 25% French and English and maybe 25% Armenian.


I agree with most of what you said. But this is a typical - armenian- exaggeration msn-wink.gif .

Let me be the first to say that that statement was as ridiculous as a Jew in a church. The world would be better if everyone spoke English? Brilliant. Who needs unique cultures whose identities have taken millenia to form? Why don't we just get rid of all the borders and make the world one big country!? Wouldn't the world be better off wholesale?

This reminds me how we would mock our teachers making up such sentences as if they were saying: "Tso ankhelq apush kezi k@sem GOR vor Hayeren lezvi mej GOR goyutyun chuni. Ays hazarerord angam e vor kezi k@sem GOR, Hayeren lezvin mej GOR chka, k'uzes GOR vor norem @sem"?
That sentence was DISTURBING blink.gif
lol @ tso

That sounds like some of the Diasporan kids trying to speak Armenian to impress the Yerevantsis.



What's wrong with Diasporan kids trying to speak Armenian to impress the Yerevantsis. At least they are trying. Most Armenians I know barely are able to speak it, so when they go to Armenia and struggle, I think that's a good thing.

No offence to Lebanese Armenians but when I hear Lebanese Armenians (straight from Lebanon now living in Armenia) talking I want to just slap them. Aga this, aga that. It's ANNOYING. Like as it their spoiled attitudes aren't enough of a nuisance.

Sorry guys if I've offended.

I've got many Lebanese Armenians friends that don't talk that way, but the other extreme which I mentioned is BIG in numbers here in Armenia.



The beirutsis I know around where I live are spoiled and snobby. They think they are better than all over Armenians. They make fun of halebtsis and baghdadtsis.

It's so lame, because 60 years ago, all Beirutsis were Halebtsis.
