Furthermore, 60 university instructors have participated in the questionnaire in the departments of Kurdish, Arabic, English, Religion, Media and Economics at the University of Salahaddin. For analysing the obtained data, both quantitative and qualitative research methods have been used. The findings of this research indicate that the components of nation building, which are media, education, economy, military and religion have enough influences on the Kurdish language because each of the components of the nation building has introduced a lot of economic, religious, military and foreign words to the Kurdish language. Therefore, it can be said that all the components of nation building have had enough influences on promoting the Kurdish language.
