Abstract

The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the fact that by many parameters, which involve all levels of linguistic structure (phonology, morphology, syntax, lexical semantics and lexicon), the Caucasus constitutes a linguistic area. The totality of numerous features shared by the two mutually unrelated indigenous Caucasian linguistic families (North Caucasian and Kartvelian) could be interpreted in terms of the Caucasian Sprachbund; this does not preclude the postulation of parallel smaller Caucasian Sprachbünde.
