Research interests

My Research Interests include corpus linguistics, lexicography and morphology. In particular, I am interested in corpus design and construction and corpus analysis methods, software tools and application of corpus methods in lexicography. My current research work is focused on computational analysis of morphosyntactic categories in Georgian. My language interests also include other Kartvelian languages - Megrelian and Laz.
