Development and Perspectives of Georgian Military Terminology on the Basis of its Etymological Analysis and under the Influence of Historical and Political Changes in the Country
Georgian military terminology has reached a culmination of its development by now. Different historical and political factors have had an influence on this process. The basic issue is that the main base of Georgian military terminology was created in Soviet times; but after dismantlement of the Soviet Union and liberation of the country, Georgia’s political course has changed drastically. The country has developed close political and military relationship with several European countries and the United States of America with this being followed by changes in its military structure. This has resulted in the necessity of establishment of new Georgian military terminology on the basis of the U.S. military term base. The process of term-establishment has almost been simultaneous to the publication of doctrines. The differences in semantic and syntactic structure of English and Georgian languages have made the process even more toilsome. As labor-consuming as it is, studying the etymology of the English term is also essential to yield flawless results.
