Spread of the Armenian language

This smaller map removes the countries where Armenian is dominant. This map therefore only shows 47.8% of all speakers of Armenian. The territory omitted is Armenia.

Although estimates of Armenian are put at just over 5 million speakers, it has spread throughout eastern Europe and the Middle East, and is spoken in at least 32 territories; many speakers are descendents of people forced to flee Armenia after the First World War.

Armenian has its own written alphabet, known in the Armenian language as Hayeren.

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Armenian as a first language that live in that territory.
