    Default Kartvelian languages

    The Kartvelian languages (Georgian: Kartveluri enebi,also known as Iberian) are one of the oldest languages still spoken today,indigenous to the Caucasus.Like Finnish and Basque they aren't related to Indo-European or Asiatic language families,but have their own. There are 4 Kartvelian languages:Svan,Laz,Mingrelian and Georgian(which is the main language). There are approximately 5.2 million speakers of Kartvelian languages worldwide.



    The connection between these languages was first reported in linguistic literature by Johann Anton Gldenstdt in his 1773 classification of the languages of the Caucasus. Zan is the branch that contains the Mingrelian and Laz languages.

    No relationship with other languages, including the two North Caucasian language families, has been demonstrated so far.Some linguists, such as Tamaz V. Gamkrelidze have proposed that the Kartvelian family is part of a much larger Nostratic language family, but both the concept of a Nostratic family and Georgian's relation to it are not considered likely by linguists.





    Certain grammatical similarities with Basque, especially in the case system, have often been pointed out.

    The Georgian language has at least 18 dialects.

    Svan (he also uses few Georgian words)


    Mingrelian


    Laz (he talks with a slight Turkish accent cause a big majority of Lazs live in Turkey)


    Georgian

    That is true that Kartvelian languages belong to the Nostratic and it is even close to Dravidian languages, and North Caucasian languages(Abkhaz, Awar, Chechen, Lezgin, Adyghe etc) belong to the big Dene-Caucasian family - Chinese, Burmese, Burushaski, Ket, Native American Dene etc. Even people in the North Caucasus do not feel any connections with Georgia.

    And how is it close to Dravidian?lol
    Whether they ,,feel'' this connection or not Caucasian people are related to each other and Georgians are the truest Caucasians.

    about "the truest Caucasians" is very debatable, because North Caucasians think otherwise, and Georgians are more South people, hence they are geographically more close to the Middle East.

    So?
    p.s. I know may North Caucasians who ,,feel'' very close to us but Georgia and its languages are unique and ancient. Georgian itself has Latin influence but Svan,Laz,Mingrelian are much older than Latin languages.

    There are already many Indians coming to our country for studying and some even buy lands,Georgian citizens aren't very happy about it,but I personally prefer them to Arab muslims.
