Yesterday I made my first ever attempt at using the Georgian writing system on paper. Despite my ability to read the letters, I have never thought about trying out the handwritten version of the alphabet before. I know, any Georgian who could be considered literate would bravely enunciate that the scribbles below are impossible to read and that by calling them Georgian I am dishonouring their culture… that was a slight overstatement, but at least you get the message. Now, Georgian – just like most other languages with a unique writing system – has its own letter forms (script) for a so called ‘cursive’ writing. Similarly to how some Europeans join their graphemes and how Mandarin has dozens of different handwritten scripts, Georgian-speakers have also developed a way of writing their letters on paper. To conclude, this is something I haven’t done at this stage. All I did was opening the Civil.ge website and copying the first two paragraphs of an article, using my own strategy of writing the letters by hand.
