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 book provides one of the best and most thorough studies available in English of the syntax of a non-Indo-European language.
