Title: Georgian Syntax
Subtitle: A Study in Relational Grammar
Written By: Alice C. Harris
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 33
Description:

Georgian has sometimes been described as a language that is ‘totally
irregular’, where the notions of ‘subject’, ‘object’ and ‘indirect object’
have no relevance. Although it is often cited in work on general
linguistics, language universals and language typology, no systematic
account of the syntax of this morphologically complex language has been
available for Western linguists. Dr. Harris’s work fills this important
need, and indeed her book provides one of the best and most thorough
studies available in English of the syntax of a non-Indo-European language.
Working in the framework of relational grammar - a framework that is
attracting great interest - Dr. Harris shows that Georgian does have
constructions found in better-known languages, and the study of individual
languages to the development of linguistic theory.
