However, the Kurdish language is independent since it has its distinct grammatical system, continuity, rich vocabulary and an independent historical development. The language is based on an ancient language known as Proto Kurdish or Median.

Stateless nations often find a hard time in expressing their identity as they are not residents to be associated with any state (Koohzad 179). Furthermore, stateless nation could refer to a given group of people without a proper system of governance, that is, not rule under one state as they may be subdivided and dispersed across many nations (Reynolds).
The researcher states that a very large Kurdish people group within the Middle East continues to exist without a state of their own.
