This book presents the English translation of a travelogue by an Armenian intellectual of the end of the 19th century. Originally written in a variety of non-normative Western Armenian, it serves as a valuable repository of highly important and unique data on the ethno-demography of the historical region of Dersim, the traditional habitat of Armenians and the Zaza people. The account vividly portrays the urban and rural settlements, their precise topography, and the enchanting landscape of mountains and rivers, which hold a significant place in the folk imagination and sacral world of the highland dwellers.

Abstract

The study of Armenian toponyms constitutes a relatively underexplored and insufficiently addressed domain within the field of Armenian Studies. Unfortunately, the seminal works by Joseph Marquart (1901) and, especially, Heinrich Hübschmann (1904), supplemented later with insightful publications by Kapancyan (1940; 1956), hitherto remain the sole substantial contributions to the realm of Armenian toponymy. Subsequent to that period and up to the present day, only sporadic researches have been done on this subject. The present paper aims at providing a brief overview of the general outlines of the Armenian toponymic system.
