"(amhâr´ik) Amharic is the official tongue of Ethiopia since the 14th century and is spoken by millions of people in the country. Amharic employs a modification of the Ethiopic script. The earliest extant texts in Amharic go back to the 14th century. Amharic has been considerably influenced in its grammar and vocabulary by the nearby Cushitic tongues."
