Armenian scientists are quite actively studying the heritage of the Sumerian civilization and its connection with Ancient Armenia. And they often make quite interesting discoveries. It should be noted that the origin of about 70% of the words in the Armenian language is still unknown. Sumerian expert Armen Davtyan found out that some of those words that science considered Indo-European, we find in the Sumerian language.

According to linguistic and chronological studies, the pre-Armenian language originated in 7300 BC on the territory adjacent to the Armenian Highlands and Western Armenia. This year is very close to the data of geneticists. They record the existence of the Armenian genotype eight thousand years ago, that is, about 6000 BC. The media even expressed surprise that Armenian women practically did not change their genotype.

Paleogenetics has also shown that the ethnogenesis of the Armenians ended long before 1200 BC. This happened thousands of years before the decline of the Bronze Age civilization in the Eastern Mediterranean. This means that not only in the pre-Urartian period of the Hittite Empire, but also earlier, during the reign of Aratta, in Shengavit, Metsamor, Lchashen, Armenians already existed as a people, they spoke the ancient Armenian language.

But since we do not have our own preserved, deciphered written sources of that period, it is possible to fill this gap only with information obtained from sources of other peoples, primarily peoples living in neighboring Mesopotamia. The genetic connections of Sumerian are not clear; it was a dead language already at the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC. It is still unknown where the ancestors of the Sumerians are, so it is not known where to look for their friendly languages, which is why there are many mutually exclusive, less well-founded hypotheses. Armen Davtyan discovered that in the Armenian-Sumerian language more than 2000 words express the same meaning. In some Sumerian texts, up to 80% of the text can be read in Armenian. This is especially true of texts related to agriculture. Moreover, Sumerian is similar not only to ancient Armenian, but also to modern Armenian. Davtyan claims that a huge part of the words recorded by Armenian ethnographers in villages of different regions in the twentieth century is in the ancient Sumerian language. Similar words exist not only in agriculture, but also in the military sphere, as well as in astronomical terms.

Armen Davtyan is currently working on the creation of an Armenian-Sumerian dictionary. When it is ready, everyone will be able to see the total number of such words. Based on the analysis of various Sumerian ideologies, the author practically proves that they can still be read in Armenian today. Both the sound of the ideologies that have come down to us, and the petroglyphs found on the territory of Armenia, testify to common roots.
