Georgian Language History
The landscape of Georgia is diverse, containing deserts, plains, seas and mountains. The Georgian people are just as diverse as their countries landscapes. Spanning a time period of five thousand years, the history of the Georgians as a people and their language is vast and great.
Around 2000 BC the Georgian language was linked to the more common Kartvelian language. The Karvelian language later split into the Georgian-Zan and the Svan languages, which later split again into the Laz, Mingralien and Georgian languages.
Christianity was first introduced in the region of what is known as the present day country of Georgia sometime in the 4th century. During this period, the Georgian Orthodox Church was established. From this point forward, the ethnic Georgians identity has been tightly interwoven with Christianity. Many Georgian religious documents have been discovered from this time period, including the Bible translated into the Georgian language.
The Georgian written language can be traced back to the 5th century where evidence of the written Georgian language and various inscriptions have been found. This era is considered to be the beginning of the “Old Georgian” period of the language, which dates from the 5th century up until the 11th century.
Legend has it that King Parnavaz gazed at the sun and saw a vision of what has been described as unusual round letters. Because of this vision, the first Georgian alphabet was formed. This alphabet was called Asomtavruli.
The Asomtavruli writings were found initially on the ancient ruins of Georgian churches, yet, the first actual written records making use of the Georgian Asomtavruli alphabet dates to the 5th century AD. Written by Lakov Tsurtaveli, the “Martyrdom of Shushanik” is one the the first litrary publications known to make use of the Asomtavruli alphabet.
In the 9th century AD, the Georgian alphabet was changed to introduce the Nuskhuri script. In the 10th century AD the “martyrdom of Abo Tbileli” made use of the Nuskhuri script.
During the 11th century AD the final alteration of the Georgian alphabet took place, when the Mkhedruli script was introduced. The Mkhedruli script has been used ever since up to the present day. The Mkhedruli script is thought to be the most complete of all the language scripts that have been used by Georgians. The Mkhedruli script has just as many letters in it as the spoken language has sounds. There is no similar alphabet contained within any other language in the world. For this reason The Mkhedruli script is one of only 14 alphabets that exist in the world today.
