Expressing Your Opinion[edit | edit source]

There are many ways to give your opinion in Northern Kurdish, and some of them may be more appropriate depending on the context, the audience or the level of certainty or conviction of the speaker. Here are some ways to give your opinion:

Using "بەشێوەی" (From my perspective)[edit | edit source]

One way to express an opinion in Northern Kurdish is to use the phrase "بەشێوەی". It is a common way to introduce an opinion in a formal context, such as a debate or a public speech.


  • Person 1: دەربارەی ناوی وەرزشەکان، بەشێوەی من، وەرزشی بەرزیەوەی مێژووی زاراوەیە. (Regarding sports, from my perspective, football is the most popular sport.)
  • Person 2: ئەڤخرایی، بۆ بەشێوەی تۆ، وەرزشی تەندروستیەوە هەڵبژاردەکات. (Actually, according to your point of view, gymnastics promote health.)

Using "بەشێوەیةکی" (In my opinion)[edit | edit source]

Another way to express an opinion in Northern Kurdish is to use the phrase "بەشێوەیةکی". It shows that the speaker is expressing a personal opinion rather than an objective fact and is more informal than using "بەشێوەی".


  • Person 1: هەر کەس دەرمانی بەشێوەیةکی دەزانێت. (Everyone has their own opinions.)
  • Person 2: بەشێوەیةکی من، ئەو کەسانەی بەشدارماندووە تەندروستیشان پارێزراوە. (In my opinion, the participating people took care of their health.)

Using "گۆڕان" (Suggestion)[edit | edit source]

In Northern Kurdish, you can also express your opinion by using the word "گۆڕان", which means suggestion or proposed solution. Using "گۆڕان" implies that the speaker has given some thought to the issue and has come up with a constructive solution or improvement.


  • Person 1: یاریستی یەکەم لەسەر وەرزشی باشتر تێبینی (The first step to a better health is to exercise more)
  • Person 2: گۆڕانی تووشی وەرزشەی ناتوانی کردووە، ستا حەزت گەورەترین بەشارەکان لەگەڵ درووست کردنەوەی بەشارەکە بدۆزنەوە. (As a suggestion, if you can't exercise, try walking up the stairs to improve your health.)

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Let's have a short dialogue to see how giving opinions is used in Northern Kurdish:

  • Person 1: به‌شێوەی من، وەرزشی باشترین بەشارەئەکان کە کار بن، ئەو بەشارەکانی خۆتەن 'دانانەوە' و 'پارە دانان'ە کە سەرتاسرشان وەرزشی گەشتەوە لەسەر هەستەکان. (In my opinion, the best health clinics that work are the ones that emphasize a walking exercise as part of their treatment)
  • Person 2: واقعیتا، وەرزشی گەشتەوە سەرسام و کاربهێنە بۆ دەستکاری هەستەکانە. (Actually, walking exercise is effective and useful for managing hypertension)
  • Person 1: هاوڕێ، هەر کەس دەرمانی بەشێوەیتەوە دەزانێت. (However, everyone has their own opinions)
  • Person 2: ئەرمێ کە نە خێری لە خاوەنی سەرماوەیەکی تیشە ئارەزووی ناگەیشتووە، من بەشێوەی دەگەڕم کە دووای جیاں وەرزشی روویداوە. (If you don't want to catch a cold, my suggestion is to stretch before exercising)
