Verbal Prefixes
The order of prefixes in a Georgian verb form is fixed.However, it is not necessary for them to be realizedsimultaneously:
Preverb-Agreement.Prefix-Pre.Radical.Vowel
-
Root
Preverbs 
express perfectivity and in movement verbs additionally direction in space andorientation towards or away from the 1st/2nd person.The slot for
agreement prefix 
can be occupied by subject as well as object markers.
Pre-radical vowels 
act as valency changing affixes.
In finite verb forms nothing can interfere between theprefixes, be put immediately before the preverb orimmediately after the pre-radical vowel.
