Amharic is the official working language of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. By modern and general consensus Amharic is international defined as an Afro-Asiatic language. This constitutes a language family with about 375 living languages and more than 300 million speakers spread throughout North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Southwest Asia, and parts of the Sahel. Afro-Asiatic languages also include several ancient languages, such as Ancient Egyptian, Biblical Hebrew, and Akkadian. The Afro-Asiatic classification is rooted in the European colonianist era. Amharic is a part of the Ethiopic Syllabric writing system, distinguished linguists like Ato Ayele Bekerie highlight that besides record-keeping and communication this African writing system has the following major purposes; Pictography, Ideography, Astrography, Number System, and Musical Notations. Broadly the system is conceptualised as a matirx of knowledge for languages, religion, philosophy and astronomy. The classical form of the ancient Ethiopic languages is Ge’ez, which is the root language of Amharic.
