A Corpus-Based Analysis of English and Kurdish Words Expressing Love: A Cross-Cultural Study
A Corpus-Based Analysis of English and Kurdish Words Expressing Love: A Cross-Cultural Study

Resul GEYİK [1]


As a new field of study “Kurdish Studies” needs to be studied in a detailed way in order to attract attention in linguistic and social studies. Through such studies, interdisciplinary approaches will bring about new openings in the field; a contrastive study of words expressing love in Kurdish-Kurmanji and English is crucial to the understanding of semantics and pragmatics. This is a sensitive matter since love requires great attention to the feelings of all levels of society and to individual cases. A thematic classification of words in both languages will facilitate understanding, and hence enable a grasp of the language and culture.

As a new field of study “Kurdish Studies” needs to be studied in a detailed way in order to attract attention in linguistic and social studies. Through such studies the interdisciplinary approaches will bring about new doors of the field, just on this point a contrastive study of the words expressing love in Kurdish-Kurmanji and English is crucial in the usage of the  semantics and pragmatics. Being a very sensitive issue, love requires great attention of the feelings from all level of society to the individual one. A thematically classification of words in both languages will facilitate the grasp of the issue, thence, the grasp of the language/culture.
