In his "Grammatik des Klassischen-Armenischen," Schmitt suggests that
evidence for vowel epenthesis in Classical Armenian can also be found in
the adaption of Armenian names into foreign languages (Greek is the only
one he names). I have as yet been unable to track down any references on
this topic. Is anyone aware of any such studies? I do have Clackson's
'Linguistic Relationship between Armenian and Greek," but it seems to
focus on shared correspondences rather than loan words.
Any assistance I could receive would be greatly appreciated.
