    Default Is Kurdish a "white language?

    So I came across an interesting term (mentioned by a Kurdish member): "white language" (in this thread https://www.theapricity.com/forum/sh...rs-Who-s-white)

    I assume it means European-sounding languages.

    Kurdish is an Indo-European language with HUGE pre-IE (Semitic, Mesopotamian etc) substratum. Do you think Kurdish is a "white language"? Because Pahli (Kurdish member) thinks so, I also think it is a white language as it is related to languages spoken in Europe.

    Have some respect for your Kurdish brothers. They are the closest population to you by IBD segment sharing.

    My AFRO-SEMITIC E1b1b friend, do you even know how to interpret this graphic? Do you think Turkish_D shares more segment with Kurdish_Y than with other Turkish populations, including itself (Turkish_D) LOL.

    Or does Turkish_D shares more segments with Ukrainians than with Turks, Turkish_Kayseri and Turkish_Aydin? If so, this graphic is meaningless (since it is from Dienekes' blog)



    Anyway, what do you think about Kurdish language? It's related to your language. Greek is an Indo-European langauge with HUGE Natufian (E1B1B) substratum.

    I think they sound a bit similar, they are both Indo-European langauges afterall))))))))

    of course it's possible. Just means every individual of Turkish_D is related to Kurds more than they're related to other individuals of Turkish_D sample. educate yourself kurd.

    Its closest dialect is not even Persian, closest to Kurdish is Baloch in North West Pakistan. So, its not.

    To my ears it sounds Persianate, but with alot of semitic glottal stops and rough KH sounds from Arabic that Persian lacks.

    But overall, it sounds Indo-European indeed, especially contrasted next to the very ALIEN language of Turkish, which is easily much stranger to the common ear. More melodious than Kurdish ofcourse, but sounding strange to the MENA region and to the Balkans. I keep hearing “jackson…chukujulorum bla bla” I don’t know why I keep hearing the word jackson in Turkish all the time, “darajackson”, “karajackson”, I kept hearing this all the time.

    Another one is constant repeating of the sound “U” with the dots on top and the “I’ without the dot. The whole language is full of those sounds. It feels like everything ends in “u”, there are no hard consonants at the end of the words. The Rs are very very soft for an English speaker, really hard to pronounce.

    Another repeating word is “sonra”, constantly sonra sonra sonra. If I had to summarize Turkish, it would be language of “darajackson+oyurum+sonra”, these are the sounds constantly repeating in the language.

    That's the future tense sign in Turkish, -ecek, acak. Those Turks were probably talking about future.

    This is only true for Sorani speakers in Iraqi Kurdistan and Kurmanji speakers in Syrian Kurdistan, particularly in the major urban centers. The following clip is from a film featuring northern Kurmanji speakers and I barely detect Semitic or Arabic influences.



    In Iraqi Kurdistan, children stopped learning Arabic in school after 1991. The amount of people who understand Arabic is declining and so will its influence on the Kurdish language.
