Main themes Armenian and Georgian belong to different linguistic systems but to societies with similar cultural and religious values. These courses (GLOR 1651 and GLOR 1652) examine the Ancient Armenian and Georgian languages as used from the Vth century A.D. onwards in a geographical area comprising the Caucasus but also the entire Near-East (the Byzantine world and the Christian Orient). The courses will investigate the linguistic systems of the two languages (Indo-European in the case of Armenian and Caucasian in the case of Georgian), compare the two systems and examine the morphological and syntactic structure of Armenian and Georgian.
Aims Armenian and Georgian belong to different linguistic systems but to societies with similar cultural and religious values. In combination with the course GLOR 1651 this course will introduce students to the linguistic systems of Ancient Armenian and Georgian languages, and to the reference tools (dictionaries, grammars and studies). It will enable them to read and understand sources written in these languages in the original. By the end of both courses, students should be able to read and translate Ancient Armenian and Georgian texts of basic and intermediate difficulty, using basic reference tools.
