|FACULTY OF HUMANITIES | SEMITIC LANGUAGES|
Amharic is the official language of Ethiopia and most Ethiopian Jewish immigrants in Israel. Even though Amharic is the official language and also a language which has preserved some of the original Semitic features, it diverged very much from most sister Semitic languages because of the influence of Cushitic languages. Within the framework of the course the phonology, morphology and syntax of the language will be taught at beginners and intermediate level. Likewise reading of simple and intermediate level texts and listening of recordings in spoken Amharic will also be included.
