Georgian Negation

Learning the Georgian Negation is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you master it the more you get closer to mastering the Georgian language. But first we need to know what the role of Negation is in the structure of the grammar in Georgian.

Georgian negation is the process that turns an affirmative statement (I am happy) into its opposite denial (I am not happy).

Grammar Tips:

In Georgian, negation can be made simply by placing "ar", - ver before the main conjugative verb.

 

amis gakeTeba ar SemiZlia (I can't do this). 

amas ver gavakeTeb. (I can't do this). 

es er momwons (I don't like it)
