Armenian (հայերեն լեզու)

The Armenian language (conventional short form hayeren) is an Indo-European language spoken by the Armenian people. It is the official language of the Republic of Armenia as well as Nagorno-Karabakh (a de facto republic but de-jure part of Azerbaijan). The language is also widely spoken by Armenian communities in the Armenian diaspora. It has its own script, the Armenian alphabet. (Ref: Wikipedia)

Armenian on

To find foods and foods and food-related items in in Armenian you may search by any sensible combination of the following terms:
Armeens Armena Armenia Armenian Armenien Armenio Armenische Azerbaijan Azerbaijani East Eastern Europe European Georgia Georgian Hayeren Lezow Russia Russian Turkey Turkish

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages and, in some cases, the Armenian has been absorbed into them. This is not intended to be offensive and I apologise to anyone who feels affronted. In the same way I have included 'Indian' in the search terms for foods of Sri Lanka, 'English' in searches of the food glossary for Welsh or Scottish; likewise for Indian, African or South American food terms, where any of hundreds of languages may be in use. It is simply to aid the traveller, often ignorant of the finer detail.

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of fenugreek, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say
'Armenian fenugreek' and then click on 'Translate from English'.

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches, such as 'Middle Eastern' or 'Indian', should help in a successful search.

Also included in the glossary are dishes from the cuisine of the region, cookery terms, cooking methods, drinks, food festivals, days of the week, months of the year etc.
