The once nomadic Kurdish populace has, for years, remained isolated from the outside world. Only recently has communication between the Kurds and other nationalities begun to flourish. The interest in knowing more about the Kurds, who are playing now a vital rule in Middle Eastern politics, has increased in the last few years. Also, the discovery of large amounts of oil in the province of Dohuk, encouraged a number of companies to invest and set up projects in the area. The Kurdish Phrasebook would be an essential tool for people visiting the Kurdish region in Iraq or neighboring countries, to communicate with Kurds. This handbook provides the measures to learn and communicate in Kurmanji-Kurdish, which is regarded by many linguists as the dialect spoken by the majority of Kurds. The book is designed to cover the day-to-day conversations of the spoken language and to give the key words and phrases needed to interact with native speakers.
