Armenian Phrases

I am using a phonetic transliteration system. The transliteration should be read just like Spanish except the h is not silent, the j is a j (as in Jacob). My additions are the kh which is pronounced like the Jewish ch in chutzpuh or the Scottish ch in Loch, also the jh which is pronounced like the j in the French word dijon (mustard), the gh is pronounced like a German saying an r, and the apostrophe which is pronounced like the uh in uh-huh (meaning yes). Note: in Spanish, all the letters, including the vowels are always pronounced the same. A as in ah, e as in bet, i as in bite, o as in bone, and u as in blue. Please note the following transliteration is in EASTERN Armenian.
