To reach a fully mature understanding of democracy would take a much longer time, but a start was made. Despite their poverty and the weakness of their democratic institutions, the Armenian people began to realize that the national interest was itself a pluralist concept, capable of being interpreted differently by separate social groups without posing any threat to the fundamental unity of the nation. Even more important than the press to Armenian politics and national identity in the post-independence period was the state of the economy.

In the ten years after 1990 a million people – a third of the population of independent Armenia – headed abroad in search of a job and a new home. Kurkchiyan argues that the emigrants forming this new outward wave were driven away not only by economic hardship, but also by disappointment, frustration and a sense of alienation. In principle, their sudden disillusionment could be reversed, but that could only happen in response to positive trends in Armenian politics and the active cultivation of an atmosphere of trust between the people and their rulers.

Armenian erku, ‘two’, derives from a proto-form *duo-, but through two stages of sound change; ji, ‘horse’, corresponds to a poetic term attested in Sanskrit for a steed ‘impelled’ swiftly forward, hayah-; but the Armenian form of the base *ekwos-, which also means ‘fast’, is üš, ‘ass’. Indo-Europeans and horses are always found together: the Armenian development might mean that Armenian speakers migrating from an earlier place where there were horses found themselves in a place where horses had not yet been introduced, or at least were still very uncommon and gradually came to use the standard word for horse for the only equid they found there: the donkey.
