Although an increasing number of studies of Kurdish grammar have been appearing over the last few years, there are still many points of grammar that have yet to be examined in depth. In preparing a Kurmanji textbook for use in the classroom, I have become painfully aware of the dearth of materials adequately describing such topics as the uses of the Conditional, or the Present Perfect Subjunctive. 'Çar naçar' as they say in Kurdish -i.e., whether I want to or not- I have had no choice but to undertake some of this research myself.
