Resource scarcity along with diversity? both in dialect and script?are the two pri- mary challenges in Kurdish language pro- cessing. In this paper we aim at addressing these two problems by (i) building a text corpus for Sorani and Kurmanji, the two main dialects of Kurdish, and (ii) high- lighting some of the orthographic, phono- logical, and morphological differences be- tween these two dialects from statistical and rule-based perspectives.
