“Kurdish Language Exercises” (Rahênanên Zimanê Kurdî) is one of the most important works in Alexandre Jaba's Kurdish Manuscripts Collection. Kurdish scholar Molla Mustafa wrote this book of exercises for A.Jaba to learn Kurdish in 1860. Molla Mustafa presented more than eight hundred examples on grammatical subjects such as tense, modal verbs and voice. Academicians Mikail Bulbul and Mustafa Ozturk both evaluated and latinized this work of Molla Mustafa in this study, and also gave the examples in the work in tables with their grammatical features. In addition, in this study, the original and color copy of the work is included in the last part of the book. This work, which has not been known until today, is published for the first time by Mesopotamia Foundation.
