One thought on “About Armenian and Aramaic alphabets

  1. The Armenian alphabet has a historical antiquity dating back approximately 9,000 years. Mesrop Mashtots’ contribution primarily involved the systematization and integration of pre-existing characters, followed by the logical incorporation of additional characters. This was necessitated due to the Armenians’ utilization of external scripts for writing, likely attributable to a loss or destruction of indigenous script materials owing to recurrent invasions. It is noteworthy that the Armenian language, including its script, encodes discernible astronomical information, forming the foundational basis for numerous languages that have evolved from it.
