There are tons of examples for this. Even while the words Kamera, Kanal etc are not even of Arabic, Turkish or Iranic origin and almost everywhere in the outside world pronounced as Kamera, I know of some Kurds who pronounce it as Qamara/Qamera and Qanal/Qenal


agree, all my realtives say also qemera, qenal ...

is this in all kurdish dialects/languages so or only in kurmanci ?

Îd actually comes from the Latin word "eid", so it comes from Latin and not Arabic.
