Hello,

Google Translate gives ամսագիր as the translation of "magazine". But, since ամսագիր is a compound of ամիս "month" + գիր "writing", I am not sure whether it refers only to monthly magazines, or also to (e.g.) weekly ones.

Can anyone clarify how broad a term ամսագիր is?

Thanks

    Yes, ամսագիր means monthly magazine, newspaper, newsletter, bulletin or circular. For a regular magazine without specifying the time period of publication, you can use պարբերաթերթ. Another possibility is հանդէս, like in the magazine «Հանդէս ամսօրեայ» of the Vienna Mekhitarist Fathers.
