Fayli:Elvish very refined language.
Sorani:Hill billy language
Kurmanji: Reminds me of chinese, don't ask why.

Kurmanji sounds like it has a bit of russian influence and can sound french sometimes. I really love the fast talking and the bit of aggresion that goes with it. The dialect uses alot more V's then W's for example Sar chavan heal/bra we would Basar chawan heval/bra.

Sorani sounds like a mix of kurmanji and Gorani/Fayli and a bit refined.. I dislike hawler dialect like they speaking villager red neck language. Not hating on hawleris <3.
I dont think sorani has much appeal but maybe because i grew up speaking it. Sounds standard to me.

Gorani/Fayli sounds like their high but in a good way, i love for example how they pronounce their words- Zaytr Baw - Sorani - zutr wara. Its a really cute dialect and can be really manly when men speak it. Reminds me of old kurdish.

If i should compare the four main dialects to the Nordic languages (For the sake of it) Sorani: Danish. Kurmanji: Norwegian. Feyli: Swedish. Zazaki: Finnish.

Why have the Kurds remained Stateless, dispossessed,
What for have they all become fugitives, condemned?

It is apart of Scandinavia, it simply isn't Germanic.

Atleast here in Denmark many people typically don't Count Finland as a part of Scandinavia, cause they're not Northern Germanic speakers like the Danes, Norwegians and Swedes. But as i said in my last comment, many do aswell. I think culturally-speaking the region is more well know as just Sweden, Denmark and Norway. Why some people decide to exclude Iceland too i have no idea, i would suppose it's got something to do with the distance.

Good idea!

If i compare the four main dialects to the Romanic languages (Neo-Latin languages):

Sorani: Italian
Kurmanji: French
Feyli: Spanish
Zazaki: Romanian


I couldn't place Portuguese anywhere.

Good point. I would only place Zazaki into German - i assume it as i used to hear Zaza Kurd speaking Kurmandji, that sounds very hard. What about Hawrami? Do we have any hawrami hevals here?
