Urartian Sibilants in Armenian
It is long known that Urartian has left certain loan words in Classical Armenian. Recent linguistic evidence points to the likelihood that the Urartians came westward from Central Asia after the Hurrians, passing south of the Caspian Sea but north of the area influenced by the Assyrians, and settled in the Sub-Caucasus; later, driven out in the mid first millennium by the Armenians and perhaps the Persians, the Urartians moved north to the South Caucasus, where their language now remains, becoming Proto-Lezgian, from which the modern Lezgian languages have evolved. This is the same as the change of Latin to Proto-Romance. Evidence now shows that Urartian (and Hurrian) are possibly related to the languages of the North East Caucasus. We can now re-construct Proto-Lezgian and from that posit genetic parallels with Urartian and thence to loan words in Classical Armenian.
