People and language

The official language of the RA is Armenian.

The Armenian language is a separate branch of Indo-European language family.

The Armenian language is spoken in the Republic of Armenia, the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, in the southern regions of Georgia, which is mainly inhabited by Armenians, in the southern part of the Russian Federation, where many Armenians live and in Armenian diaspora (Spyurk).

According to one of the assumptions, it was Armenia that was the ancestral home of the Indo-European languages. The present Armenian alphabet was created by Mesrop Mashtots, in 405. The early medieval documents witnesses the existence of pre-Mashtotian writing. The alphabet consists of 39 letters and 36 sounds and expresses completely and perfectly the difficult phonetic system of the Armenian language.

The famous English poet of the 18th century, George Gordon Byron, spoke beautifully and neatly about the Armenian language: “Armenian is the only language to speak to God”.
