Fun facts about Amharic

The Amharic word for 'myself' is literally 'my head' ራሴ !

In the Amharic script every symbol represents a consonant + vowel sequence.

Coffee was first grown and consumed in Ethiopia. Amharic is the only language in the world apart from Armenian where the word for 'coffee' doesn't sound like 'coffee' or 'café'. Amharic speakers call coffee, 'buna' ቡና.

The Amharic definite article ('the'), like Romanian and Swedish, comes at the end of a word instead of at the beginning. For example lej ልጅ is “child” but leju ልጁ means “the child”.
