About Amharic Language

Amharic, also known as Amarigna and Amarinya, is spoken by more than 25 million people worldwide, primarily in Ethiopia and Eritrea, according to Ethnologue. Ethiopia uses it as its working and official language. Ethnologue estimates that 21,600,000 of these Amharic speakers reside in Ethiopia based on data from the 2010 census. 14,800,000 Ethiopians are monolingual, with the majority living in the modern Amhara Region, Addis Abeba, and major cities in other Ethiopian provinces. More than 2.4 million emigrants from Ethiopia and Eritrea are thought to speak Amharic throughout the diaspora, primarily in North America, Europe, and Australia.

According to recent study, Amharic is one of the Southern Semitic languages spoken in Ethiopia along with Argoba, Tigrinya, Tigre, Geez, Guragenya, Siltee, etc. These languages are thought to be far older than the Northern Semitic languages like Hebrew & Arabic. 1 Amharic is ranked as the second most spoken Semitic language in the world by Africanranking.com. The script used in Amharic is descended from the Ge'ez alphabet. There are 33 fundamental characters in it, and each one contains seven different consonant-vowel combinations. The language is written from left to right, in contrast to other North Semitic languages like Arabic, Hebrew, and Syrian.

Since the ninth century, Amharic has been widely spoken in Ethiopia and has been used as the official language since the fourteenth. A considerable body of literature has been produced in Amharic, particularly since the turn of the 20th century. The previous centuries were dominated by Christian religious writings. The only manuscripts that are currently known that are not religious literature are philosophical or quasi-religious treatises by Zara Yaqob and his student Wolde Hiywet from the 17th century. Diverse literary genres began to emerge in the early 19th century. Emperor Theodore (Atse Tewodros) wrote the first chronicles or Gedl in Amharic in the 1880s. Tobya, the first book written in Amharic and published in Rome under Menelik II, was written by Italian-educated author Afewerq Gabre-Yesus.
