TALENTED ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR MARIAM HARUTYUNYAN IN FOCUS
The role of Hrachya Acharyan's teacher, Heinrich Hübschmann, cannot be underestimated in the issue of Armenian Studies, particularly in terms of the study of the Armenian language.

Armenian has long been considered an Iranian language without its phonetic system. The German linguist was the first to initiate the study of Indo-European languages.


In 1875 the article "The Place of the Armenian in the Indo-European Languages" was published by the linguist, in which, based on the harmony of the phonetic rules in Armenian, he proves it is a separate branch of the Indo-European language family, and the Persian words are simply borrowings.


This scientific article has given Armenian a new reputation, and linguists have to rewrite the Armenian language.


To make the work of Hübschmann available in Armenian requires the same dedication and responsibility as authorizing these studies.

96-year-old Mariam Harutyunyan, whose academic career began with Manush Nazaretovna, was that brave linguist who translated the Armenian studies of Hübschmann into Armenian, making it accessible to Armenians.
