Presenting the language in the form of dialogues and reading passages, many of which touch on contemporary Georgian life including politics and minority rights issues, this grammar introduces a colloquial language in a comprehensive self-study text for all learners. George Hewitt presents in a clear manner the grammar, pronunciation and lexis of this complex language. The vocabulary contains over 2,600 entries with the verbs listed by root, often illustrating more than one verb form. Full attention is given to script reproduction and recognition, with both Roman and Georgian scripts used up until the fifth lesson. Lessons are tested by a range of exercise work. The reference section provides an answer key, Georgian-English glossary, a phrase guide and an index and glossary of terms.
