Label Generation Rules for Georgian


This file contains set of Label Generation Rules for Georgian Mkhedruli (modern) as would be appropriate for the Root Zone. For more details on this LGR and its development see "Proposal for a Georgian Script Root Zone LGR [Proposal]". The format of this file follows [RFC 7940].


The repertoire is described Section 5 "Repertoire", in "[Proposal]" and only includes the 33 code points used by languages that are actively written in the Mkhedruli alphabet. The repertoire is based on [MSR-2], which is a subset of Unicode 6.3 [Unicode 6.3].

Each code point or range is tagged with the script or scripts that the code point is used with, and one or more references documenting sufficient justification for inclusion in the repertoire, see "References" below.


The LGR does not define variants.

Character Classes

The LGR does not define character classes.

Whole Label Evaluation (WLE) and Context Rules

Default Whole Label Evaluation Rules

The LGR includes the set of required default WLE rules and actions applicable to the Root Zone and defined in [MSR-2]. They are marked with ⍟.

Georgian-specific Rules

This LGR does not define rules specific to Georgian.

Methodology and Contributors

For methodology and contributors, see Sections 4 and 8 of [Proposal].


Reference [0] refers to the Unicode Standard version in which corresponding code points were initially encoded. Reference [100] corresponds to a source given in "[Proposal]" for justifying the inclusion of for the corresponding code points. Single code point or ranges may have multiple source reference values.

Repertoire by Code Point

The following table lists the repertoire by code point (or code point sequence). The data in the Script and Name column are extracted from the Unicode character database. Where a comment in the original LGR is equal to the character name, it has been suppressed.

Code Point
A code point or code point sequence.
Shows the character or sequence name from the Unicode Character Database.
The shape displayed depends on the fonts available to your browser.
Shows the script property value from the Unicode Character Database. Combining marks may have the value Inherited and code points used with more than one script may have the value Common.
Links to the references associated with the code point or sequence, if any.
If the comment in this row consists only of the code point or sequence name, it is suppressed in this view.

Variant Sets

This LGR does not specify any variants.

Classes, Rules and Actions

Character Classes

The following table lists all named and implicit classes with their definition and a list of their members intersected with the current repertoire (for larger classes, this list is elided).

Name Definition Count Members or Ranges Ref Comment
implicit Tag=sc:Geor 33 Elements: {10D0-10F0}    


Members or Ranges
Lists the members of the class as code points (xxx) or as ranges of code points (xxx-yyy). Any class too numerous to list in full is elided with "...".
A named or implicit class defined by all code points that share the given tag value (ttt).
An anonymous class implicitly defined based on tag value.

Whole label evaluation and context rules

The following table lists all named rules defined in the LGR and indicates whether they are used as trigger in an action or as context (when or not-when) for a code point. (Any use of context rules for variants is not indicated).

Name Used as
Used as
Anchor Regular Expression Ref Comment
leading-combining-mark     (^[∅=[[∅=\p{gc=Mn}][∅=\p{gc=Mc}]]])   Default WLE rule from MSR-2 matching labels with leading combining marks ⍟


Used as Trigger
This rule triggers one of the actions listed below.
Used as Context
This rule defines a required context for a code point.
This has a placeholder for the code point for which it is evaluated.
Regular Expression
A regular expression equivalent to the rule, shown in the standard notation with some extensions as noted:
[\p{ }] - property character set
A character set defined by reference to a value for a given Unicode property [\p{prop=val}]. A set defined via "\P" indicates the set complement.
[&&,-,^] - set operators
Sets may be combined by set operators (&& = intersection, - = difference, ^ = symmetric difference) or concatenated (union).
∅= - empty set
Indicates that the following set is empty because of the result of set operations, or because none of its elements is part of the repertoire defined here. A rule with a non-optional empty set never matches.
⍟ - default rule
Rules marked with ⍟ are included by default and may or may not be triggered by any possible label under this LGR.


The following table lists the actions that are used to assign dispositions to labels and variant labels, based on the specified conditions. The order of actions defines their precedence: the first action triggered by a label is the one defining its disposition.

# Condition Rule / Variant Set   Disposition Ref Comment
1 if label matches leading-combining-mark invalid   labels with leading combining marks are invalid ⍟
2 if at least one variant is in {out-of-repertoire-var} invalid   any variant label with a code point out of repertoire is invalid ⍟
3 if at least one variant is in {blocked} blocked   any variant label containing blocked variants is blocked ⍟
4 if each variant is in {allocatable} allocatable   variant labels with all variants allocatable are allocatable ⍟
5 if any label (catch-all)   valid   catch all (default action) ⍟


{...} - variant type set
In the "Rule/Variant Set" column, the notation {...} means a set of variant types.
⍟ - default action
Actions marked with ⍟ are included by default and may or may not be triggered by any possible label under this LGR.

Note: The following variant types are used in one or more actions, but are not defined in this LGR: out-of-repertoire-var, blocked, allocatable. This is not necessarily an error.
