The Armenian history attributed to Sebeos by Sebēos( Book )

30 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This, the first English translation of the 1979 critical edition of the classical Armenian text, is of interest to all those studying the Middle East in late antiquity, since Sebeos not only sets the scene for the coming of Islam but provides the only substantial non-Muslim account of the initial period of expansion. The notes are specifically aimed at the reader unfamiliar with Armenian. The historical commentary makes an original contribution to modern scholarship on the period, and assesses the accuracy and value of the text

A Textbook of modern western Armenian by Kevork B Bardakjian( Book )

13 editions published between 1977 and 1998 in English and Armenian and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook is designed as a first-year course at the undergraduate level. It is specifically aimed at students with no prior knowledge of Armenian, and emphasis has been placed on the numerous subtleties and nuances of Armenian which might seem strange or difficult to English speakers. In the text, stress has been put on explaining the grammar and syntax; for practice in speaking, tapes were made which elaborate on the material in the exercises. The vocabulary is based on the thousand most frequent words in Armenian, which were compiled from word frequency lists available for Western European languages. Spoken Beirut Armenian was chosen as the most acceptable form where alternatives existed. The text reflects recent linguistic trends in spoken Armenian; a deliberate attempt has been made to disregard literary and stylistic archaisms. In addition, the English of the exercises has not been simplified. (Author/RM)
