The Kurdish language has been spoken by people known as Kurds, native to the Zagros-Taurus mountains, Mesopotamia, Anatolia and the Caucasus, for thousands of years. The native people of this region developed two ancient writing systems known as Sumerian Cuneiform and Linear Elamite. The Kurdish language needs to use a writing script of its own. The Kurdish language should return to these writing scripts.
Cuneiform was used as early as the 4th millennium BCE within the Sumerian civilization of Mesopotamia. It began as Archaic Cuneiform until becoming Early Dynastic Cuneiform in the mid-3rd millennium BCE.
The Kurds established the Medes Empire in the 1st millennium BCE. The Cuneiform writing system was further developed, forming the Median Cuneiform script.
Elamite (Linear Elamite) was used as early as the 3rd millennium BCE within the Îlam region of the Zagros mountains.
