This is the first learner's grammar of this fascinating language to appear for many years.
The Grammar presents the language in the form of dialogues and reading passages. Full attention is given to the script reproduction and recognition, pronunciation, lexis and individual points of grammar. There is a range of exercise work.
The reference section provides an exercise answer key, Georgian-English glossary and an index of grammatical terms.
