The outstanding linguist, professor Giorgiy Klimov He was a linguist of diverse interests. The spectrum of his investigation is large. The theory of contensive typology is widely known, his input in study of Kartvelian and North-Caucasian languages are invaluable. G. Klimov passed away suddenly, unexpectedly. Nothing foreboded the tragedy… He could not complete and brought about his plans, much of his forethoughts.
However, some of his researches have been carried to the end by his colleagues. Last few years G. Klimov worked at the dictionary of Caucasian languages with a great diligence. “The Dictionary of Caucasian languages. Comparison of Basic Vocabulary” was published in 2003. The decision of publication had been made after his death. Yakov Testelets agreed to be an editor-in-chief. First, the handwritten materials were converted into electronic format. Afterwards, M. Khalilov was involved in co-author’s capacity to finish off the Dagestanian material. First time in the Caucasology it was carried out the systematic comparison of basic indigenous and the most common borrowed vocabulary of the autochthonous languages. In the Dictionary 1 200 nouns, adjectives, verbs and other parts of speech are presented which reflect essential subjects of nature, family and private life, household and social activities. The units are accompanied by etymological comments.
