A Kurdish-English Dictionary

TAUFIQ WAHBY, Formerly Minister of Education
C. J. EDMONDS, Formerly Advisor to The Ministry of Interior Iraq

The Kurdish of this Dictionary is the standard language of belles-lettres, journalism, official and private corre-spondence, and formal speech as it has developed, on the basis of the dialect of Sulaimani, since 1918, when Kurdish was established as an official language of the administration and of primary education in Northern Iraq; it is, moreover, the language adopted in Persia for Kurdish broadcasts and government-sponsored publications.

The Roman spelling used is a transliteration of a modified Arabic alphabet devised by Taufiq Wahby and is to be adopted by the Iraqi Ministry of Education for use in schools.

This is the first Kurdish dictionary to be published in a Western European language since 1879. It should interest not only students of Kurdish but philologists in general.
