submission Critique | On Jennifer Manoukian’s “That’s not Armenian! Encounters with language purists past and present” Last week, we published Jennifer Manoukian's essay entitled “That’s not Armenian! Encounters with language purists past and present,” and asked for comments on the topic. Hratch Demiurge, a long-time contributor to h-pem, came up with a respectful critique—which appeared first in his satirical online journal Bread and Onions, discussing why purism sometimes matters with regard to the spoken language. Check out Demiurge's insightful perspective peppered with his signature wit and humor, and let us know what you think in the comments below!*
