TV Channel Lineup by Language : Kurdish

Kurdish, a language spoken by the Kurds in western Asia, is similar to Kurmanji, a language spoken in the north of Kurdistan, and Sorani, a language spoken in the south of Kurdistan. In essence, then, it is a language with numerous dialects spoken by different groups of Kurds. Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran are places where Kurdish is spoken. Part of the Indo-European language family, Kurdish history is full of obscurities, especially before the pre-Islamic era. About all linguists can gather is that it is a derivative of the older Hurrian language that was replaced by the Indo-European language somewhere around 850 BC when the Medes arrived in what is now known as Western Iran. Kurdish has had a difficult time establishing itself as a recognized language. For political reasons, It has been banned in a big part of Kurdistan for some time and from 1980 to 1991, it was illegal to speak it in Turkey. Although Kurdish poets and writers like Hassan bin Adi, Ali Hariri, Ahmad Khani, Faqi Tayran, and Malaye Jazir brought legitimacy to the language from the 15th to the 17th century, it was only a grammar book by an Italian priest, Maurizio Garzoni, written in 1787, that the originality of Kurdish was given academic acknowledgement.
