In this episode of SBS Kurdish Podcast series; My Kurdish Language is My Identity we discuss the expression of the Kurdish language in the Arabic script verses the Latin script. Farman Hidait, a Kurdish author and researcher of Kurdish history, argues that linguistically speaking the Latin script can better express the sounds and the phonetics of the Kurdish language.

Then, why hasn’t there been any serious effort to reform Sorani Kurdish script, and who is responsible?
