Yes/No/Ok In Armenian
How To Say Yes In Armenian
Yes – այո (Ayo)
The Armenian word for Yes is ayo and can be used for any question or conversation that requires you to say yes. For example, let’s say someone is trying to confirm whether you are coming with them to the party in the night, and they ask:
- Are you coming to the party tonight? – Գալիս եք երեկույթին այս երեկո (Galis yek’ yerekuyt’in ays yereko)
The best thing to say is ayo which means yes, or follow it up with an affirmative sentence. So, for example, you can tell.
- Yes, I am coming – Այո, ես գալիս եմ (Ayo, yes galis yem)

Saying No In Armenian
No – Ոչ (Voch’)
What if you want to disagree with someone in Armenian? The best word for disagreement is no, but how do you say it? In Armenian, Voch’ means no, and it is one of the best words to show your disapproval of an agreement or plea.
Saying Ok In Armenian
Ok – Լավ (Lav)
Saying ok is a way to accept or approve a decision. See it as being affirmative. For example, if a friend informs you that you will be ushering in a party, and you are cool with the decision, you can say ok.
