Tigrinya is one of the African Semitic (Afro-Asiatic) languages spoken in the Eritrean Kebessa (highlands), as well as most of Tigray and parts of Wollo and Gonder in Northern Ethiopia. It is the fourth widely spoken Semitic language in the world after Arabic, Amharic, and Hebrew. Tigrinya, as a spoken language, evolved from the ancient Aksumite language of Ge'ez around the 13th century, but developed as a literary language only after the beginning of the 19th century.
