      This talk deals with the use of placeholder verbs in Georgian (Kartvelian). In many cases, those verbs are used when speakers have a problem recalling the exact verb in their turn in the conversation. However, those placeholders can also be used when the speakers deliberately avoid uttering the exact verb form for some reason. I will look at how morphological markers of placeholder verbs are used by language users to hide or, on the contrary, hint at certain pieces of information about the implied verb. I will also look at the data from different periods of modern Georgian to clarify what led to having multiple exponence of agreement markers in Georgian placeholder verbs, a synchronic explanation of which was given in Harris (2017).
