Possessive construction is one of the interesting constructions which has attracted the attention of researchers in the field of linguistic typology and its various properties in various languages have been studied. The main purpose of this research is to analyze the possessive construction in Kurdish (Gurani dialect) from a typological point of view. We aim to find the linguistic type of Gurani Kurdish on the basis of the order of elements in possessive construction (i.e. possessor and possessum), the linking strategy and the degree of their fusion, and the distinction between alienable and inalienable possession. The findings of the study suggest that Gurani dialect uses two simple strategies for possessive construction on the phrase level: 1) juxtaposition strategy with NG order and independent elements; 2) Affixation strategy with NG order and linked elements. On the sentence level, it uses 'have'- construction and 'belong'-construction with differences between them in terms of the element order, definiteness vs. indefiniteness of possessor and possessum, and alienability vs. inalienability.
