Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: A Topical Outline of Georgian Grammar
Written By: Julian Granberry
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Caucasian Linguistics 18
Description:

A Topical Outline of Georgian Grammar presents all of the basic grammar of
the language of Sakartvelo (Georgia), an important and very modern southern
European, northern Near Eastern language spoken by some 5 million people to
the south of Russia and the immediate north of Armenia and Turkey. The
language has a vibrant, important literature with its beginnings in 450
A.D. and continuing to the present day.

The book can be used both as a first learning tool for the beginner as well
as a reference grammar for the more experienced user. It will enable the
learner to begin reading in a short period of time and can be used at any
time by all users as a handy look-up volume on any point in Georgian
grammar. Grammar points are presented topically: The Alphabet; Grammatical
Categories, Case Usage and Word Order; Nouns and their Declensions;
Adjectives; Adverbs; Interrogatives; Numerals; Conjunction, Particles, and
Interjections; Pronouns; Postpositions; and an Introduction to the Georgian
Verb, containing full conjugational examples of all the classes of Georgian
verbs.

The book is particularly recommended for those language learners who prefer
a concentrated yet complete grammar rather than the slower lesson-by-lesson
approach.
