Homshetsma (Հոմշեցի - Homshetsi lizu, Homshetsma, "the Hamshen language"; Turkish: Hemşince) is spoken by Hemshinlis (Hamsheni; Turkish: Hemşinli) in East Blacksea Region of Turkey. Homshetsma is archaic Western Armenian but written in Turkish version of Latin. Homshetsma contains many Turkish and Laz lexical items. There are three basic subgroups of Hemshinli: Western Hemshinli who live in Rize and are Sunni Muslim (Armeni), Eastern Hemshinli who live in Artvin and are Sunni Muslim (Homshetsi), Northern Hemshinli who live in Georgia and Russia and are Armenian Apostolic Church member Christian (Homshentsik). Western Hemshinlis can’t speak Homshetsma although they know many Armenian words. Nornthern Hemshinlis can speak Homshetsma but they use different alphabet and also have differences. So, the writing language isn’t mutually intelligible each other. Therefore, Turkish dialect of Homshetsma is only spoken by Easten Hemshinlis in the Hopa and Borçka counties of Turkey's Artvin Province. Eastern Hemshinlis who speak Homshetsma are almost 50.000 in Turkey.
The Homshetsma alphabet is modified Turkish alphabet. The Homshetsi alphabet employs 33 characters, 8 vowels and 25 consonants.

- Support I used "hyw" instead for Homshetsma and it worked out. I already created main page of Homshetsi dialect test Wiki in Incubator. My friends (from Thousand Oaks High School) can start contributing there and make it grow! --CasetteTapeMaster (talk) 17:08, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
- I'm very sorry, we already have hy:, see we can't use "hye". --OosWesThoesBes 09:21, 2 September 2010 (UTC)
- Oppose A very small used Armenian dialect. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 07:28, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
- If so, Homshetsma Wikipedia may created in many alphabets (Turkish, Armenian, Georgian, Russian). There isn't any Western Armenian project yet. "hye" code hasn't been used in any project so far. Why do you argue against this project. UNESCO has marked Homshetsma as a "hye" code. Just like http://incubator.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wp/lzz
- "hye" code is for "all armenian varieties". "hye" is the same code as "hy". Where ISO 639-1 exists, ISO 639-1 is used. Also note that the page at en.wp does not give any code for Homshetsma. --OosWesThoesBes 10:04, 5 September 2010 (UTC)
