Ethnic Kurds compose a significant portion of the population in Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye'deki Kürtler, Kurdish: Kurdên li Tirkiye). Unlike the Turks, the Kurds speak an Indo-European language. There are Kurds living all over Turkey, but most live to the(((((((((( east and southeast of the country))))))))))), from where they originate. wikipedia


Contemporary use of Kurdistan refers to parts of eastern Turkey (Turkish Kurdistan), northern Iraq (Iraqi Kurdistan), northwestern Iran (Iranian Kurdistan) and northern Syria inhabited mainly by Kurds.14 Kurdistan roughly encompasses the northwestern Zagros and the eastern Taurus mountain ranges,15 and covers small portions of Armenia. wikipedia

Aramean and Aramaic
by: Anonymous

Arameans are not the native speakers of Aramaic which is a (Semitic) language, just because their name is Aramean!!! Aram means high in the language of Noah and his sons, and Shem means name, Ashur or Assur means the beginning.

All of these words are still used in the modern Assyrian language with the same meaning; and this was way before the existence of the Aramean people.

The story is that all living people in the region spoke the same language, but called it different names. I can assure you that the Aramean people are the native writers of the Aramaic alphabets, for they were the first to create and adopt those alphabets.
