ኢትዮጵያ ግዕዝ Gəʿəz Alphabet in Photos

Amharic - The Second Most Spoken Semitic Language in the World

Ge'ez (ግዕዝ Gəʿəz), is a script used as an abugida (syllable alphabet) for several languages of Ethiopia and Eritrea but originated in anabjad (consonant-only alphabet) used to write Ge'ez, now the liturgical language of the Ethiopian and Eritrean Orthodox Church. InAmharic and Tigrinya the script is often called fidäl (ፊደል), which means "script" or "alphabet".
