ტოგო გუდავა – მეცნიერი და მასწავლებელი

Abstract
Togo Gudava graduated from Tbilisi State University, Faculty of Philology, Department of the Caucasian Languages in 1945. From 1945 to 1948 he studied at the post-graduate course of the Institute of Linguistics of the Academy of Sciences of Georgia, with a specialty in the Caucasian languages. In 1948 Togo Gudava defended his Ph.D. thesis – Main Morphological Categories of the Botlikh Language and in 1964 – his doctoral thesis Consonant System of the Andic Languages. From 1950 Togo Gudava was a research worker at the Institute of Linguistics, and from 1966 – also a professor of the Chair of Structural and Applied Linguistics of Tbilisi State University; over the years he delivered lectures in various linguistic disciplines: Comparative Grammar of the Kartvelian Languages, the Avar Language, the Zan Language. Togo Gudava is the author of up to 90 printed scholarly papers, including significant monographs: Comparative Analysis of Verb Stems of the Avar and the Andic Languages; the Botlikh Language. Grammatical Analysis, Texts, Glossary; Consonant System of the Andic Languages; the Bagvalal Language; Historical-Comparative Analysis of Consonant System of the Dido Languages; Georgian Orally Transmitted Folklore. Most of T. Gudava’s works are devoted to the synchronic and diachronic research of the Dagestan languages and problems of historical phonetics and morphology of the Kartvelian languages. In 2013, in the journal Issues of Linguistics, dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the birth of Togo Gudava, the complete bibliography of his scholarly works was published; it is regrettable that it includes numerous unpublished manuscripts that are very valuable for linguistics. Although Togo Gudava died at age 54 in 1976, his contribution to Kartvelian and Caucasian Studies is immense.
