Feyli

Feyli

Feyli (also Fayli or Faili) is one of the southern dialects of the Kurdish language, spoken in Southern Kurdistan and Eastern Kurdistan (i.e. the eastern part of Iraq in the Khanaqin region in the Diyala province near the Iraqi-Iranian border), Ilam province and parts of Kermanshah province in Iran by Feyli Kurds. The word Feyli itself comes from the word "Pahlehi" meaning "related to Pahleh" (the Zagros decades).Pahleh was a great region including:Khanaqin,Mandali,Badrah,Zorbatiah,Jassan,(all in iraq) and a great part of Ilam province (mostly northern part) and parts of Kermanshah province in Iran.This dialect has many common features with Kurmanji dialect as well as sorani dialect and has a really close relation with Kalhuri,Gurani and Laki dialects of Kurdish language . Because the '"Pahleh" region has been ruled by Lur dynasties for a long time, this dialect of the Kurdish language has been influenced by Luri.
