The Georgian agreement system is infamously complex, exhibiting both subject and object agreement with potentially multiple exponent slots. These agreement patterns fall into two major verbal agreement paradigms: (i) the 'basic', where the prefixes track the object and the suffixes track the subject, and (ii) the 'inverse', where the prefixes track the subject and the suffixes track the object. While there are a number of competing analyses focusing on the basic paradigm, the inverse has largely been ignored. In this talk, I extend previous analyses to verbs in the inverse paradigm and provide evidence that they have more structure than verbs in the basic paradigm.
