Amharic language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.

 

Origin and History

Amharic is an Ethio-Semitic language and is a subgroup of the Afroasiatic languages within the Semitic branch. It is used by the Amharas as a first language and by other groups living in large Ethiopian cities and towns as a lingua franca.

As a result of a pidginization process with a Cushitic substratum and a Semitic superstratum, the Amharic language may have evolved to facilitate contact between persons who spoke a mix of different languages. The language serves as Ethiopia's working language and is also the working language of many of the federal system's states. 

A variant of Amharic spoken by the descendants of Weyto language speakers was identified by Mittwoch, but it was probably not an Amharic dialect so much as the result of incomplete language learning as the population changed languages from Weyto to Amharic.

In many genres, there is an increasing body of literature in Amharic. Government proclamations and documents, schoolbooks, religious articles, fiction, poems, proverb collections, dictionaries (monolingual and bilingual), professional manuals, medical subjects, etc. are included in this literature.

 

Dialects

Not much about variations in Amharic dialects has been written. Both dialects are intelligible to each other, although certain small differences are noted.

Using a method that evolved out of the Geez script, Amharic is written left-to-right. In the Ethiopian Semitic languages, the writing system is called Fidäl. "script", "alphabet", "letter" or "character" means Fidäl. From the first four symbols, the writing system is sometimes called abugida; the current name abugida is taken from this.

There is no widely accepted way for Amharic to be Romanised into Latin script. One system popular among linguists specialising in Ethiopian Semitic languages is used in the Amharic examples in the sections below.

The Amharic script is an abugida, and it is called fidel in the graphemes of the Amharic writing language. Each character represents a consonant+vowel sequence, but the consonant that is changed for the vowel defines the basic form of each character. In more than one sequence of characters, several consonant phonemes are written. In Unicode, the Amharic script is used and glyphs are included in fonts that are available for major operating systems.

 

Spoken

Amharic is the second most spoken language in Ethiopia (after Oromo) and the second most widely spoken Semitic language in the world, with 21,811,600 total speakers as of 2007, including about 4,000,000 second language speakers (after Arabic).
