I adore this word: Ստուգաբանութիւն which is the art of disecting the words.

Like: Սեւակ -> Sev is black, ug is eye

Like: Շաքարախտ -> shakar is sugar (hmmm, I'm starting to wonder whether sugar and շաքար are related), akhd is disease or similar.

Sassun, talking about mosquitos, I remember this word: Մժղարգել

It's the net that the we use not to allow the mosquitos to reach us.

Oh, its ստուգաբանութիւն is: Մժեղ and արգելք (am I right?)

Another word that I rarely hear people use is: Զարտուղի

I think it means strange, odd, not familiar

I believe it means 'indirect', as in, զարտուղի ճամբով.

You forget such names like Goez@-goetu-boyukian(big eyes/big butt), Goekq-goez-ian(Blue eyed/ kaputachian),and filannlly the non-turk sevak-black eyed etc.

When will we revise our surnames like "kara-geuz-ian/black-eyed" to SEVAK-ian!!!

խենթանոց

(compare to հաւնոց or թռչնոց...)

Or compare with երաժշտանոց. I heard that's what they're calling the music conservatory now in Armenia.

Is that good or bad? On the website's logo they call it կոնսերվատորիա.

I think երաժշտանոց sounds a bit too strange. They should just keep it konservatoria.

I definitely prefer pure Armenian words; if we're not to speak and use them, who will?
