The Kurdish Alphabet! Elfúbey Kurdi!

PostAuthor: Bestoun » Sat Nov 03, 2012 2:13 am

A complete kurdish alphabet consisting of 30 letters with 4 Digraphs (Ch, ll, Sh, rr)
The velar " ll " is for non-initial positions only (ll), in Kurdish Velar L never comes in initial position.
The trill " rr " is for non-initial positions only, initial position in any Kurdish words is pronounced as a Trill " R ".

If you want to install it for Windows, I can send the .exe file.

Thoughts? Comment please :)

It is amazing how people spell when writing Sorani, something standardized would be very nice (beside the arabic letters).

I have seen people spell kurdistan as, krdstan, deldar as dldar etc.. what is it, are they using imaginary "fatha" and "kasra" ?

Thank you

Yes exacly, really annoying to read sometimes :))

And the thing is this script has less letters than the Kurmanjî latin script. "Ç" and "Ş" is removed (replaced with "Ch" and "Sh") and "Ù" is added. That means in total besides the 26 basic latin letters, there are 4 more letters for this kurdish alphabet. "Í", "É", "Ú" and "Ù". Wich will make writing with keyboards a lot easier! :)

Swedish has 3 more extra letters besides the 26 basic latin letters. They are "Å", "Ä" and "Ö".

I have a lot of respect for latin (Bedirxani) scripts, but sometimes I find it also a bit confusing. I wish to have a straight forward script.
Ch, Zh, Sh and Gh are nice, but also confusing for people that do not know English.
