Matthias Bedrossian’s Armenian-English Dictionary, based on Mkhitar of Sebastia’s great Nor Baṛgirk', the New Dictionary of the Armenian Language, has been a sure and faithful guide for English students learning Classical Armenian since its first publication. Compiled by learned Mekhitarian monks from all their editions of ancient Armenian writers, revised and updated by a master of the classical language, this dictionary is by far the best available in English today. Not only does it contain nearly 50,000 entries, but it also includes numerous additional phrases and idiomatic expressions to help the student master the classical language. The inclusion of a mini-grammar, list of the common irregular verbs, and glossaries of the most common personal and place names make this volume more than a mere dictionary; it is truly a beginner’s single-volume sourcebook for the study of Classical Armenian. The Gorgias edition features a new introduction by Edward G Mathews Jr.
