Hmm. The link on that page that tells you where you can find
Georgian courses in North America is odd. The person at the
UofC who really knows a lot about Georgian, Howard Aronson, is
not listed on that page:
Victor Friedman has done some work on Caucasian languages (Lak),
not nearly as much as he's done on Macedonian, and not nearly
as much as Aronson has done on Georgian. I don't really know
why they mention Saliloko Mufwene; his big thing was creolist
studies, I thought.
