Yes, while they are Georgian, they speak different language and with Megrels (Megrelian language is spoken there) form the Georgian or Kartvelian language group. Which has not ties with any other language and forms independent language group.Svans are well known for their brave spirit, Ushguli Svans never had feud rulers and with Pshavs and Khevsurs they were ruled by tribal law and by eldest people.
