Abstract [en]

In this paper, it is proposed that Georgian verbs can be classified into two large groups: verbs formed without auxiliary verbs (mainly with thematic markers) and with auxiliary verbs. Syntactically, two main groups are identified: direct verbs and inversive verbs. Dynamic and stative are considered formal categories; the ability to form the present tense without taking an auxiliary verb is considered a morphological marker of formally dynamic verbs. Within this frame, a system is proposed that includes eight verb types, each with direct and indirect syntactic patterns. A large class of Georgian verbs, traditionally known as Class III verbs, is split into three different types, or subclasses. Characteristic formal features of all three types within Class III are touched upon. It is argued that various degrees of semantic transitivity have their morphological marking in Georgian.
