Amharic is the second most spoken Semitic language in the world, with Arabic being the first one.
It is the official language and the working language (along with English and Tigrinya) of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, where the majority of Amharic speakers can be found, nevertheless there are also speakers in a large number of other countries such as Egypt, Eritrea, Canada, the USA and Sweden.
Amharic is not the only language spoken in Ethiopia since the country has hundreds of languages and different ethnic groups, but it is undoubtedly the most accepted and used. It is also the only African language with its own characters and features, having more than 200 different letters. But what it really makes unique this endemic language is that it has its own numbering system, feature that only a few countries in the whole world have. This Ethiopic numbering system comes originally from the language named Ge´ez, the liturgical language of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church which is only used now in churches.
The word Amharic comes from the district of Amhara in Northern Ethiopia, which is considered its historic centre. Nowadays there are two main hypotheses on the origin of Amharic: it might be a descendent of a Proto Ethio- Semitic language or it might was developed from a Semitic- based pidgin.
At the moment Amharic language is getting more and more reputation at international level and some universities in Europe and Asia are already including Amharic language in their academic programmes.
Gondar, Gojjami and Showa. All these dialects are mutually intelligible and differentiate each other drastically in the pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. The standard Amharic is the one spoken in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.
