Armenian: Modern Eastern...
"Modern Armenian, known as Ashkharhik, is spoken in two
primary dialects: Eastern Armenian, in the Soviet Union and
adjacent communities of the Turkish and Iranian borderlands,
and Western Armenian, elsewhere.   Modern Armenian is said to
have [chang]ed from the usage of the 16th century, although the
Eastern dialect has remained much closer to Classical Armenian
than has the Western dialect.   The Eastern dialect is often termed
‘Ararat Armenian’."
