Catholicosate of Cilicia
Antelias - Lebanon
On Thursday, November 29th, 2018, His Holiness Aram I presided over the meeting of the Committee in Defense of the Western Armenian Language, in Antelias.
The Committee, chaired by Yervant Pamboukian, discussed, among others, the Western Armenian Spelling Guideline it has designed. After it is finalized by the committee members across the Armenian Diaspora, the guideline will be available online on the Catholicosate’s website in order for experts to have an input in it. The Committee also talked about the means to design software for the guideline to be accessible on different platforms.
His Holiness Aram I stated that despite the challenges of this field, the Catholicosate will continue its efforts, because the Western Armenian is one of the foundations of living as Armenian in the Diaspora.
