Great job, Rich! I'm truely thankful what you've did here. The topic looks great and all the translations into Georgian and its transliteration is perfectly done. Can you read Georgian? or you've been to Georgia ever? GeorgianJorjadze (talk) 17:58, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. I can read Georgian a little (with help from a dictionary). I am familiar with the alphabet (including handwriting), and I understand the sound system and basic vocabulary and grammar (including a basic understanding of verbs). I can write and speak only a very few things at this point. I've never been to Georgia (at least, not yet).
One question I had about numbers is this: In those rare cases when you would actually write a long number in words, do you write everything as a single very long word, or do you split it up? For example, the current year (2012) — if you had to write it out as a word or words (without using digits), would you write ორიათასთორმეტი, or ორიათას თორმეტი, or ორი ათას თორმეტი? The sources I've found don't seem to agree on this. — Richwales 18:41, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
The correct form is "ორი ათას თორმეტი" which is written seperately, but it's also not that wrong if someone will write like "ორიათასთორმეტი", beceause many may do and it's not thought to be a big deal of mistake. But the correct form is to seperate words of course. GeorgianJorjadze (talk) 18:51, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
