გყავს is "you have." მყავს is I have. :)

Hmm yeah. the მ- only appears at first person SINGULAR, and not plural. I should bear this in mind. Tricky...

I can still say მე მანქანა არა მყავს, მაგრამ ბინა მაქვს...(or should I use კი instead of მაგრამ?)

I would say that both მანქანა არა მყავს, მაგრამ ბინა მაქვს (you can drop მე) and მანქანა
არა მყავს, ბინა კი მაქვს are fine.

By the way, 4th conjugation verbs are the section where Kiziria really leaves out a lot.
With her book you can say "You love Georgia", for example, which would be საქართველო
გიყვარს, but she doesn't teach you how to say "You love me", which is გიყვარვარ, and
even more importantly "I love you", which is მიყვარხარ (and which of course you're going
to need some day when you fall in love with a Georgian!)

I noticed that too, TixhiiDon! I thought it was very strange that she didn't teach how to say "I love you." Maybe
she didn't want to get into the suffixes. However, I learned miyvarxar in about two seconds reading some
teenagers' Facebook pages.. It's like that's all they know how to say...

Ok sorry to get off topic here. :)

It's still on topic as it is about Georgian =D

Let not my girlfriend read that I'd fall in love with a Georgian =D

I know that a lot is coming about 4th conjugation as well as the object infixes, but that is something I don't fear that much. I can simply make analogies to what happens in Romance languages, where we do insert object pronouns within a verb...Have you heard about Portuguese mesóclise?!

Can't wait to get serious on this subject on Aronson and Tschenkeli though...seems promising! I think next week I'll be done with Kiziria.

Haha, yeah, I noticed that too. Georgian teenagers and 20-somethings seem to be really
sloppy! It's all მიყვარხააარ! and რა ლამაზი ხარ and კეთილი. You'd never get away
with it in England, or Japan for that matter...

Expugnator,

დალაგება means to "tidy up", "clean up", like putting things in order.
გაწმენდა means to "clean", "brush", basically removing stains, etc.

Quote:
საბავშვო


Do you know "სა–ო" preffix-suffix combination? It basically means "for",
e.g. "სა–ქართველ–ო" - literally translates as "for Georgians"
სა–სადილ–ო" – "for dinner" meaning "dinning room"

You can form not only nouns but adjectives as well in the same way.
so "სა–ბავშვ–ო" is an adjective meaning "for children".

...

LOL about Facebook stuff :D
