Southern Kurdish (کوردی خوارین, Kurdîy xwarîn), Kellhurrî or Kirmaşanî, is a Kurdish dialect predominantly spoken in Eastern Iraq and Western Iran.[3] In Iran, it is spoken in the provinces of Kermanshah and Ilam. In Iraq, it is spoken in the region of Khanaqin, all the way to Mandali. It is also the dialect of the populous Kurdish Kakayî tribes near Kirkuk and most Yarsani Kurds in Kermanshah Province. There are also populous diasporas of Southern Kurdish-speakers found in the Alburz mountains.

Native speakers use various different alphabets to write Southern Kurdish, the most common ones are extensions of the standard Kurdish alphabets.
