YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 28, ARMENPRESS: The Armenian language is ignored by
a great number of people in the society, according to Davit Gasparyan,
specialist in literature, doctor of philology. He said today at a
meeting with journalists that one can see the real image of the use
of Armenian when walking in a street.

Davit Gasparyan says those, who "torture the language", must be
punished, as Armenian is the state language of Armenia. He added
that he appreciates the phenomenon, when people learn many languages;
however "the mother tongue must not suffer from it".

According to Lalik Khachatryan, head of the Armenian language chair
of the State Pedagogical University after Kh. Abovyan, the interest
in the mother tongue must be evoked among children at school. "The
number of lessons of Armenian in schools and higher educational
establishments must be increased," she said.
