I agree with marich27, this is how it normally would sound.


Quote:
1. მათ ცნობები უკვე მიეღოთ, როცა მათ წერილი გაეგზავნა. (i.e. pluperfect)
2. მათ ცნობები უკვე მიიღეს, როცა მათ წერილი გაეგზავნა. (i.e. aorist)
3. მათ ცნობები უკვე მიუღიათ, როცა მათ წერილი გაეგზავნა. (i.e. present perfect)


As for these three, only the first one is gramatically correct, except it should be "გაეგზავნათ" in the end and probably "მათ" should only be used once.

Murdoc და მარი, დიდი მადლობა დახმარებისათვის. მომწონს ეს გრამატიკული
სტრუქტურა "მიღებული ჰქონდათ" ან "მიღებული აქვს" იმიტომ, რომ ინგლისურის
სტრუქტურა "They had received" ან "They have received" ძალიან ჰგავს.

რა განსხვავებაა, მაგალითად, "წაკითხული მაქვს"-სა და "წამიკითხავს"-ს შორის? ორივეს
ერთი და იგივე მნიშვნელობა აქვს?

კიდევ ერთი შეკითხვა მაქვს თქვენთვის, სულ სხვა თემაზე. იცით ქართული
ტელესერიალი "ცხელი ძაღლი". წეღან You Tube-ში ვიპოვე და ვაპირებდი ყურებას,
მაგრამ თქვენი აზრით საინტერესო სერიალია?

Now to English. Two interesting finds in Georgian world. First, a new film, which has
just had its premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival: it's called გაიღიმეთ
in Georgian and "Keep Smiling" in English, and from the
trailer it looks really cool.

Secondly, someone has gone and beaten me to it! There is a new collection of modern
Georgian short stories, just published, translated into English by a young British
woman who, it appears, taught herself Georgian, found some interesting literature,
translated it, and got it published. I'm enormously jealous as I've had visions of
myself doing the same thing, but good on her for spreading the word about the great
Georgian literature that's out there.

I tried to do a link to the Amazon page, but it doesn't turn out right. Anyway, it's
called "Contemporary Georgian Fiction" (why not give it a more imaginative title??),
translator Elizabeth Heighway. There's even a Kindle edition.

(Damn damn damn! Why isn't it my name on the cover?)

Amazon UK has a preview with the first story included:
ie=UTF8&qid=1352469598&sr=8-1">Fiction from Georgia.

The title on the Amazon website says "Fiction from Georgia", but the picture of the book itself is of
"Contemporary Georgian Fiction", so somewhere along the line the title seems to have changed.

Quote:

That made me smile. Don't feel too bad. - According to the blurb at the back, Heighway "holds a BA in
Philosophy and Modern Languages from the University of Oxford, and is studying for an MA in Translation
Studies from the University of Birmingham. She translates from Georgian and French."   So I'm assuming she
didn't entirely self-study her Georgian.

The Amazon link seems to have worked in "post preview", but I know I often have trouble getting links to work on
Htlal.

Tixhiidon, as for myself, I still can be a pioneer in Portuguese, I'm not worried =D I doubt there is any Georgian text translated into Portuguese.

Wow, what happened to lit.ge?? I just wandered over there for the first time in a few months to see if they
had any of the works in the short story collection I mentioned above in the original Georgian, and I was
greeted with a professional-looking, beautifully laid-out e-book store, complete with most of the works of all
the authors I have discovered and come to like (or at least become interested in getting to know better) over
the last couple of years - Kartvelishvili, Bughadze, Turashvili, Morchiladze, Burchuladze - and many more.

The only problem is you need to download an Android app called Iota Reader to read the books. Sadly
there's no equivalent for us iPad users. This is such an interesting find, though, that I might actually treat
myself to a shiny new Nexus 10 when it becomes available the day after tomorrow. Just to buy a few more
Georgian books... Does my dedication to this language know no bounds?
