Armenian and Slavic Correspondences in Comparison with Indo-European Languages
Petryshyn, Ivan
Online Submission
Armenian as a separate language has been thought as an I-E Language, but what language/s are the closest to Armenian? We made an attempt to compare Armenian words with Ukrainian, Slavic and European Languages contrasting the stems to some Iranian Languages, like Tajik, Dari and Persian, to see how relative Armenian could be to them. Our main goal was to identify the main Consonant-Vowel Regularities in Armenian: Ukrainian/Slavic: European/Iranian Languages. It has been noted that Armenian words have also some correspondences with Iranian Languages, like Tajik and Pharsi. To make the picture complete, we give their same-root words, as the illustration of the consonant-vowel interdependence. To complete the whole picture, we also used the Albanian Language as one of the separate I-E Languages to detect possible correspondences. Some of the entries had been made later: they add to the whole picture of the VCI and the VCI regularities. The methods of the transcription are also various, as accepted by the authors or as a simplified American pronunciation transliteration. Yet, students and linguist will not have a problem, if they are acquainted with European, Iranian and Isolated Languages, such as Albanian. (A bibliography is included.)
