A short history of the Tigrinya language
The Tigrinya people account for approximately 505 of Eritrea’s population and they live in the fertile highlands of Eritrea and also in Ethiopia.
There are around 7 million Tigrinya speakers, mainly in Eritrea and Ethiopia in Africa. However, there are migrant communities which have settled in the Sudan, the United States, Germany, Italy, Canada and the United Kingdom. It is the fourth most spoken language in Ethiopia.
Tigrinya has different dialects, which differ in grammar and punctuation. The Tigrinya vocabulary has words from both English and Italian, as the two countries administered Tigrinya.
Written Tigrinya uses the Ge’ez script, which used to be the classical language of Ethiopia. Ge’ez is still used in modern Tigrinya and it has a great influence on religious texts, even though the Ge’ez language is now extinct. The earliest written text was found in the 13th century and consisted of a text of local laws.
When the British administration of Eritrea began in 1941 and lasted for nine years, a weekly newspaper was published in Tigrinya, which proved to be very popular. It sold hundreds of copies every week.
