Georgian grammar rules

Like other Turkic languages Georgian is agglutinative, e.g. grammatical forms are created by adding various suffixes to fixed stems. This may occasionally result in long words, which correspond to phrases and even whole sentences in European languages. Georgian uses postpositions rather than prepositions to mark grammatical relations.

Nouns have plural and singular forms. There is no grammatical gender. There are seven cases: nominative, ergative, accusative, dative, genitive, instrumental, adverbial, and vocative. There are no articles.
