A short history of the Kurdish language

English to Kurdish subtitling service

Kurdish is spoken by more than 30 million people in West Asia, Germany, Iraqi-Kurdistan and the language can also be heard in Turkey and Iran. The language is close to Iranian and contains a number of Iranian words. It has official language status in Iraq, together with Arabic. It is also a recognised language in Armenia.

Kurds on the whole are bilingual, speaking the language from where they come from and Kurdish. Some are even multilingual speaking Turkish as a second language.

Kurdish dialects are classified into three sections:

  • Northern Kurmanji
  • Central Sorani
  • Southern Kermanshahi, Ardalani and Laki

The dialects of Kurmanji and Sorani are not similar because of grammatical differences and cannot be understood by each other.

Writings which mention the word Kurd have been found to go back to the 7th century, however, at that time it is thought that Kurd referred to Iranian Nomads and not a group of people. In 934 a dynasty was founded and the Kurds had a Kurdish ruler. This went on through the 11th and 12th centuries, but after that the dynasty crumbled. The Turks were then used by whoever was in power as members of the military, or as slaves. Although today they live in Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria, the Kurds are known as an ethnic group without a state.
