Nationalism and Language in Kurdistan, 1918-1985
Standardization, as defined in this study, is a struggle to create a national language. It involves more than alphabet reform or codification of phonology and vocabulary. Standardization is treated as language development, similar and closely related to social, economic, and political development. The approach here is interdisciplinary, cutting across a number of fields in social sciences: sociolinguistics, political science, mass media studies, education, and policy studies.
