The development of basic NLP resources for minority languages is still a challenge to both formal and computational linguists. In this paper, we show how we were able to develop a medium-scale morphological lexicon for Kurmanji Kurdish in a few days time using only freely accessible resources. We also developed a preliminary POS tagger that shall be used as a pre-annotation tool for developing a POS-annotated corpus, based solely on raw text and on our morphological lexicon.
