Additional background on Kirmanjki

Zazaki (Zazaish) is a language spoken by Zazas in eastern Anatolia (Turkey). According to Ethnologue, the Zazaki language is a part of the northwestern group of the Iranian section of the Indo-Iranian branch of the Indo-European family. Zazaki shares many features, structures, and vocabulary with Gilaki language, spoken in northern Iran, along the Caspian coast.

The 1965 Turkish census counted 171,057 Zazas (%0.54 of total population), divided into 150,644 native and 20,413 second-language Zazaki speakers.[citation needed] However, according to the ethnologue, the number of Zazaki speakers is between 1.5 and 2.5 million (including all dialects) (1998 Paul).
