These are separated by certain sound changes common to the languages of either branch. The earliest “Eastern” Indo-Europeans seem to have lived also to the north of their “Western” cousins, so one might visualize the move­ ment of these languages southward from an original home in the South Russian steppes and Central Asia in two successive waves: the ancestors of the Hittites in the first; the Phrygians and Armenians in the second, moving from the north of the Black Sea down into Thrace and across the Hellespont into Anatolia.

The word dzov, “sea,” for example, comes from Urartean sue. Urartean, which seems to have been related to the modem Caucasian languages, was probably already dead long before THE FORMATION OF THE ARMENIAN NATION 23 the birth of Christ, but the word survives, in Hebrew form, as Ararat, the name by which the Bible knows the mountainous land where Noah’s ark rested. ” The word for “sea” is a fairly basic one, which replaced the proto-Armenian Indo-European term, so one can assume the Arme­ nians had already fully assimilated dzov at a very early date.

For example, Armenian erku (“two”) and erkayn (“long”) do not outwardly resemble words of similar meaning in other Indo-European languages; but it has been established that proto-Indo-European *dw- becomes erk- in Armenian, so Greek duo (“two”) and dweron (“far”) are in fact cognates to the Armenian words. Such great changes would indicate that the Armenians separated at a very early stage from their closest Indo-European cousins (the protoGreeks, it has been surmised), when they migrated to eastern Anatolia.
