Kartvelian substrate toponyms in Abkhazia

Tchantouria, Teimuraz and Gvantseladze, Revaz (1999) In Working Papers, Lund University, Dept. of Linguistics 47.
Abstract
In this paper we discuss a specific Kartvelian model of toponyms, using names of plants without any affixes as toponyms. This model is observed almost all over the Georgian

territory. It has been noted on the Abkhazian territory as well, but is not found in the Abkhaz language. We suggest that Sukhumi, Gagra and Tkvarcheli follow this model.
