Historically, Kurdish language belongs to the Indo-Aryan (Indo-Iranian) eastern descendants of Indo-European family, and was developed between 4,000 and 2,000 years ago which makes Kurdish a language of Neolithic Period.

Regular Kurdish verbs are constructed with -în and -andin suffixes “root word+andin/în” (şik+andin, rev+andin, qet+andin etc.) while irregular verbs are constructed with -in and -n (bijar+tin, guhar+tin, guvaş+tin etc.).
