Abstract:

'The Georgian Verb' gives full information about Georgian verbal categories
and all possible variations of verbal conjugation often not covered by other
grammars. The Georgian verbal system creates a very specific system of
split ergativity in Georgian syntax exposing many categories with their
morphological references inside one verbal form. This micro syntactic verbal
system may have personal markers for the subject, the direct and indirect
object objects including the inversion of these markers for transitive verbs in
some rows of conjugation. The verb can also have thematic markers,
markers of version, causation, voice and finally, the markers of the
conjugation rows include the markers of tenses and mood. This complexity of
the Georgian verb is well exposed in this book. The poly-personal verbal
categories are briefly described in a way that is easy to understand. This
book presents the first occasion of Georgian verbal conjugation exposing a
combination of multiple verbal persons within a single verb in convenient
easy to read tables. One can see how the subject, direct and indirect object
act together within each verb with different forms of verbal tenses, version,
voice and causation. All general models of these fully exposed diverse types
of conjugations include both frequently used regular and irregular verbs.
