The Kurdish language consists of a continuum of related spoken varieties without having a standardized linguistic entity, and is mainly spoken in those area of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria which comprise Kurdistan. Kurdish is without a unified writing system, as well. The Kurds have been obliged to modify orthographies according to the type of script in use in those countries that Kurdistan is annexed to. The author describes the historical development and importance of writing; and the reason behind adaptation of a specific writing system. He also describes the historical development of the Kurdish writing, the reason of having different kinds of alphabet and related problems and solutions.
