Brief Description of the Doctoral Project:

“Argument Structure in Georgian Sign Language”

My research focuses on morphosyntactic structure and semantic properties of arguments in Georgian Sign Language (GESL). This issue in spoken Georgian has been thoroughly explored, as its features are commonly acknowledged to be of great significance. Recently conducted researches presume that specific linguistic properties of argument structure in Georgian Sign Language (GESL) are also noteworthy and further researches could lead us to new discoveries in this field.
Consequently, the goal of my research is twofold: first, to analyze argument structure in GESL; second, to contribute to the theoretical crosslinguistic discussion about this issue.
