Etymology[edit]

It is obvious that the word "kurd" is very old: in Pahlavi as "kurt/kwrt" it has been written, in Aramaic "qardu", and in Ancient Greek "kyrti". But it is not clear if the meaning of these words is for the present Kurdish people or not. But the conclusion is not even clear what the meaning of these words is.(Can this(+) etymology be sourced?)

Pronunciation[edit]
