SPECIALISTS FROM ARMENIA AND DIASPORA - TO SEEK WAYS OF CONVERGING WESTERN AND EASTERN ARMENIAN

14:25, 29 July, 2015

YEREVAN, JULY 29, ARMENPRESS. The Armenian Genocide was a major blow
to the Armenian language. The latter was detached from the Homeland,
spread around the world, became eradicated losing many dialects. With
these words the Minister of Diaspora of Armenia - Hranush Hakobyan
-opened the conference on "Issues of Convergence of Western Armenian
and Eastern Armenian" on July 29.

Armenpress reports that Hranush Hakobyan said at the opening of
the conference:

"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".

Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia Yuri Suvaryan
noted:

"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."

Renowned linguists, literary scholars and other specialists of
the field from Armenia and the Diaspora will make reports at the 2
day conference. According to the Minister of Diaspora a package of
proposals is expected to be formed at the end of the conference. Later
the proposals will be voted on and the most optimal variant will
be chosen.
