How To Say Yes In Armenian

Yes – այո (Ayo)

[Speechword voice=”Armenian Male” isinline]այո[/Speechword]

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)

[Speechword voice=”Armenian Male” isinline]Գալիս եք երեկույթին այս երեկո[/Speechword]

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)

[Speechword voice=”Armenian Male” isinline]Այո, ես գալիս եմ[/Speechword]
