Kurdish Student Hope Society

The Kurdish Student Hope Society was the first group efforts at language reform which began early in this century by Kurdish nationalist political organizations in the Ottoman Empire. One of the objectives of "Kurd Telebe Hévé Jemiyetí" (Kurdish Student Hope Society) was "the reform, compilation, and cultivation of the Kurdish language and literature" (quoted by Kurdvani 1925:41). The organization's journal, "Rojhí Kurd" (1913), published a thoroughly revised alphabet based on the Ottoman Arabic script.
