The History of Amharic Language

The Amharic language is one of the two main languages used in Ethiopia and the second-most commonly spoken Semitic language in the world after Arabic. It has been the working language of courts, language of trade and everyday communications, the military, since the late 12th century. 

Background

Although the oldest existing records in Amharic are songs and poems dating from the 14th century CE, significant literature in any quantity did not begin until the 19th century. The Amharic language possibly originated as a result of a pidginization process with a Cushitic substratum and a Semitic superstratum to enable communication between people who spoke a mix of different languages.

Mode of Writing

Amharic is written in a slightly modified form of the alphabet used for writing the Geʿez language. There are 33 basic characters, each of which has seven forms depending on which, the vowel is to be pronounced in the syllable. Amharic has been strongly influenced by the Cushitic languages, especially Oromo and the Agaw languages. The dialects of Amharic are not strongly differentiated from one another.

Dialects

We don't have plenty of published works about Amharic dialect differences. All dialects are mutually intelligible, but certain minor variations are noted.

Mittwoch described a form of Amharic spoken by the descendants of Weyto language speakers, but it was likely not a dialect of Amharic so much as the result of incomplete language learning as the community shifted languages from Weyto to Amharic.

Rastafari Movement

The Amharic language is considered sacred among the Rastafarians, so many of them use it as their second language. After Haile Selassie's 1966 visit to Jamaica, study circles in Amharic were organized in Jamaica as part of the ongoing exploration of Pan-African identity and culture. Various reggae artists in the 1970s, including Ras Michael, Lincoln Thompson, and Misty in Roots, have sung in Amharic, thus bringing the language to a wider audience. The Abyssinians, a reggae group, have also used Amharic, most notably in the song "Satta Massagana". The title was believed to mean "give thanks"; however, this phrase meant "he thanked" or "he praised", as säṭṭä means "he gave", and amässägänä "thanks" or "praise". The word "Satta" has become a common expression in the Rastafari dialect of English, Iyaric, meaning "to sit down and partake".

Amharic Language is being spoken in Amharas and as a lingua franca by other populations residing in major cities and towns of Ethiopia
