Eastern or Western Armenian?

Did you know that there are more than 8 million speakers of Armenian across the world? There are two standard forms used, Eastern and Western Armenian.

Armenian is the official language in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. As well, it is spoken in several other countries, including Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Iran, Cyprus, Poland and Romania. There is also a significant number of Armenians in the United States, although a precise number is not known.

Eastern and Western Armenian developed during the 19th century as a result of the division between the Russian and Ottoman Empires. These days, generally speaking, Eastern Armenian is spoken in Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Georgia and Iran while Western Armenian is used in the other countries of the Armenian diaspora.
