Interesting facts about the Kurdish language
The Kurdish language belongs to the Indo-European language family. Around 40 million people speak Kurdish; the biggest Kurdish-speaking communities are in eastern Turkey, the north-west of Iran and northern Iraq and Syria. Many Kurds also live in Khorasan in north-east Iran, in the Iranian part of Balochistan, and in the republics of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Turkmenistan, as well as more recently in the major cities of Europe.
Exile is of great significance for writers and other artists in particular, since their works are often first published in a foreign country. Whereas many languages in the last two centuries have been standardised in the context of nation states, the Kurdish language continues to be characterised by many dialects.
Kurdish can be divided linguistically into three main dialect groups: Northern Kurdish (Kurmancî), Central Kurdish (Soranî) and Southern Kurdish (Goranî, Zaza, Lekî). In addition, there are many minor dialects and every valley has its own special characteristics. Silêmanî, Mukirî, and Sineyî are minor dialects of Soranî, for example.
Kurdish uses both modified Arabic letters as well as the Latin alphabet as its writing systems. However, there are several different systems for the Latin-Kurdish script and lexicologists are still divided on the modified Arabic script to this day.
