I'm moving to Kurdistan on the 22nd of this month! Kurdish foreign members are welcome to visit :D

Btw Limagne, I've been using the Joyce Blau book a bit. It's quite good although I think there are some exercises with multiple answers where she only gives one which makes me doubtful of whether I've understood it. But vocabulary is good (with a French dictionary!).

1. What exactly does the title of it mean?


According to the title, it's the final scene of a play called 'Nama Leyla Qasim'. Might have been shot in Qamishli, Syria.

Hey, are any Kurdish learners still around? I'd appreciate a lot if someone posted a song in Kurdish and glossed the lyrics (or gave a literal translation).

I think I had posted a rough translation of that Yalda Abbasi song somewhere in the Kurdish forum. But then, that's going to be in the Khorasani dialect of Kurmanji :)

Have a look at this though:

Found a Turkish translation.

Hi there,

it's is very learn Kurdish language, but the problem is the variety of dialects and we don't have standard Kurdish language so far. I hope that Kurdish academic people to work on this issue.

What is the status of /q/ in Kurdish (specifically Kurmanji)? Does it have a strong presence?

Yes, it's a common sound, used both in native and borrowed words.
Examples:
Paqij 'clean' - of Indo-European origin
Qelew 'fat' - of Indo-European origin
Qeder 'destiny' - from Arabic
Qet 'never' - from Arabic

That's a little intimidating but I guess it's always good to try phonemes outside of your comfort zone.
