The ergative construction in Kurdish
It is well known that during the course of their histories a number of Indo-European languages, all of them members of the Indo-Iranian branch of the family, developed an ergative construction. Thus, in certain tenses of the verb, their grammars came to treat in forlly identical manner the...www.semanticscholar.org
I don't know. All I know is that it sounds very strange to my ears.but zaza is not a kurdish dialect . it is an own language
Well, I am not a linguist and I do not have a lot knowledge of Kurdish dialects, but personally, Zazaki reminds me a little bit of Ossetic/Alanic. In Georgia we have some Ossetian friends and Zazaki sounds a little bit like Ossetic. I think that Zazaki, like other KurdiC dialict Gorani, is more influenced by the Eastern Iranian Scytho-Sarmatian language, or maybe Parthian.well i consider zazas as kurds
but it is its own language
and i think you are right

Of course Ossetians are Iranic people. They are Northern West Asian people, Ossetians speak an Iranic language and they have an Iranic identity and culture. They cluster on a genetic map very close to other Iranic people like Kurds or Persians. They fall within a Northern West Asian genetic cluster for sure. Our deep roots are the same.interesting
by the way what is your opinion about ossetians being iranic or not
there are people in forum always saying that ossetians are not iranic
Y-DNA distribution of the Ezdi Kurds and other Kurds from Southern Kurdistan (Northern Iraq). Ezdi Kurds (who are considered to be the closest to the proto-Kurmanji Kurds) have much more R1b than R1a in them. Look how much G2a we have, also more than R1a. It is the same G2a as in the Ossetians..I mean, I am R1a* (Y-DNA), but R1b is much more dominant among the Ezdi Kurds. While in some other Kurdish tribes R1a is more dominant than R1b. G2a is very high among the Ezdi Kurds from Shengal/Ezdixan, more than 10% and also very high among other Kurds.
So, I am 100% sure that ancient Iranic people, like the Medes, had a lot G2a, R1b and J2a in them.
That makes sense. Because proto-Eastern Iranic people (Alanians, Scythians) evolved from the BMAC and later they migrated into the Steppes. BMAC was not Iran_Neo, but it was Iran_ChL. And Iran_ChL is more CHG than Iran_Neo.but the thing is that ossetians score no iran neolithic
they are genetically basically like other caucasus people
but then again .....i dont think it makes them less iranic than anybody else since we are a lot closer to them genetically and geographically and also lookwise than to eastern iranics
