Georgian

Georgian, the native language and the official language of Georgia, is spoken by about 4 million people in Georgia and by about half a million Georgians who have emigrated to Europe, the United States, Russia, Iran, Turkey, and Israel. A nation in the Caucasus, Georgia has evolved a national culture based on the literary strength of its language and alphabet. This has helped it keep its sense of identity during times of foreign occupation. The South Caucasian people who speak Kartvelian languages, like the Svans, the Mingrelians, and the Laz people, consider Georgian their literary language. In addition, the Jewish population in Georgia has evolved a separate Jewish language known as Judeo-Georgian, which is spoken by 20,000 people in Georgia and 60, 000 people in Israel. Georgian became a literary language because as far back as the 5th century AD, the Georgian Orthodox Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Apostolic Church sponsored works of religious devotion. Later, secular works, too, were promoted, like national, historical, mythological, and hagiographical works. However, the Georgian alphabet, itself, is even older. Tradition has it that the legendary reformer King Parnavaz I of Iberia invented the Georgian alphabet as early as the 5th century BC.
