Kurdish language project at Manchester

Posted on July 19, 2015 by

Manchester’s Kurdish language project, led by Yaron Matras and Andrew Koontz-Garboden, now has a website!

The project, funded by an AHRC grant of £194,550, aims to document the structural and typological variation between different dialects of Kurdish. Funded from 2014 to 2017, it follows a British-Academy-funded pilot project.

On the website you can find out more about Kurdish and listen to sound samples. The site will also ultimately host a database of their findings.

Matras and Koontz-Garboden’s project, carried out in collaboration with Dr Salih Akin (Rouen) and others, today received coverage on the Languages of the World blog.
