The best one has been published in London by Baran Rizgarî some years ago. But it is absolutely out of order, or may be you could find old exemplaries selling on Internet by people. BTW, I can look tomorrow if others has been published and could be ordered.

You should purchase Michael Chyet's book:

Chyet, Michael L. Kurdish-English Dictionary: Ferhenga Kurmancî-Inglîzî. 2003

You can find it on most online bookstores...

searching in amazon , I found this
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=books

and see how funny Amazon has listed this book .

#Kurdish-English/English-Kurdish (Kurmanci, Sorani, and Zazaki) Dictionary & Phrasebook, Romanized (Hippocrene Dictionary & Phrasebooks) (Paperback)
# by Nicholas Awde
# Paperback: 226 pages
# Publisher: Hippocrene Books; Bilingual edition (November 30, 2005)
# Language: Turkish
# ISBN: 078181071X

# Language: Turkish Excuse me ? !!!!!!!!!

I read the Amazon's reviews , most of the users recommended Baran Rizagri's dictioanrty, unfrotunately they are out of order ...

#Kurdish-English & English-Kurdish Dictionary, Kurmanci Dialect (Paperback)
# Paperback
# Publisher: Bay Foreign Language Books (December 31, 1996)
# ISBN: 1873722052
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=books

#Learn Kurdish: A Multi-level Course in Kurmanji (Paperback)
# Publisher: Bay Foreign Language Books (December, 1996)
# ISBN: 1873722044
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... ce&s=books

anybody the publisher knows ? "Bay Forgen language books"

I would like to contact with them to make Online or Digitalized (Computer Based) Version of their Paper Dictionaries... do you think they would accept that ?

There is an English to Kurdish section in Chyet's dictionary as well. It is not as in-depth but it helps a lot !

dyaoko, it appears that baran rizgar's dictionary may still be available through amazon.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASI ... 07-9879843

a couple of years ago, i had to order baran rizgar's Learn Kurdish/Dersên Kurdî through amazon.uk because, although at the time his dictionary was available from amazon in the us, his Dersên Kurdî was only available through amazon.uk.

i really like his little dictionary and it has a grammar section in the back. i have been tempted to get dr. chyet's dictionary, but i feel that it might be too advanced for me at this point. maybe someone who knows that dictionary might advise me if it's worth getting.

Chyet's dictionnary is very literary. He took most examples of sentence from Mamê Alan or expressions from the country ...

Rizgari's is very good for learning with a lot of useful modern words. And his dicitonnay is smaller and easier to manipulate.

I would say that Chyet's one is aiming to advanced Kurdish studies.

This one is not bad:

Salah Saadallah: Saladin's English-Kurdish Dictionary

Avesta, 2000, hardcover, 1477 p. ISBN: 9757112852

A one-way Kurdish-English dictionary containing approximately 80,000 entries. Entries include an English head term, part of speech, and Kurdish equivalents. Often related words and phrases or combinations in which the head term often appears are included in the same entry. Concludes with a bibliography.

Chyet's dictionary is wonderful and possibly the most extensive Kurdish dictionary in existence. For learning Kurmancî, Baran Rizgar's book is great. However, if you wish to increase your vocabulary of the Kurdish language, I would highly recommend Chyet's Dictionary.

I have only one complaint about Chyet's dictionary. There are several words that I, personally, have noticed and feel are missing and should have been included. Nevertheless, I still think it is a good dictionary.
