Summary and Info
Just before completing an update and revision of his 1964 Etimologicheskii slovar' kartnel'skikh iszykov, Klimov died, and his wife and colleagues in Moscow have seen the project through. The etymological study of the language group from region of the Caucasus Mountains, which includes Georgian, has seen many developments over the past 30 years, so that the revised dictionary contains about 500 more entries and incorporates new analysis of existing material. It gives special attention to matters of word formation in order to reveal derivational relations between a number of lexemes formerly considered unrelated to each other. Another feature is the emphasis on what Klimov considered to be evidence of ties between Kartvelian and Indo-European languages, whether from a genetic relationship or prolonged contact in the region.
