Which Armenian word has the most "O" sounds in it?

My guess would be Օրորոց.

Atta girl Nairi!
Actually.. till evening, as night is gisher/գիշեր. Երեկ to mean "yesterday" in fact means "last eveining".
It is already ereko/երեկո here. Goedemorgen to you.
I will see you վաղ արավոտ /early morning when it is ts-erek/Ց-երեկ.
Here is the next question.
Why then ereko/երեկո is spelled with the Ե when it turns to Ի/I in declension like in իրիկուն/ իրիկնամուտ. You think one time it was spelled էրէկո?


Well, it's not early enough here to be "morgen," but late enough to be "nacht." smile.gif

Then…

Gute nacht, gut nacht,
Mein feiness kindt,
Gute nacht,,
Schlaff wohl mein kindt.
Es zingt in busch die nachtigal
In dem klaren mondenschein.

Hey Gamavor, is there the sound of H in the Bulgarian. I met an Armenian from Bulgaria who would pronounce his name- Hrant as Khrant


That is exactly right. There is no sound for "H" in Bulgarian and if you have a chance to hear a Bulgarian speaking English, you can easily detect this. At to the Armenians from Bulgaria, yes.. they are often object of funny remarks by other Armenians because of their hard "KH" when it is supposed to be "H". A funny story comes to mind but it is not for the public. smile.gif

How about: G'knem (kunanam gor) and k@num em, or g'kunem (shoping) and/or k*nem gor? smile.gif

Dear Haro, here at @11 you said this;

to think of it now, Maqo is Maqrouhi... (probably)... And Maro is Mariam

**Please tead this and see where Maro/ Mari comes from. Not from Mariam. It is an easy trap.
Look;
