thanks very much .. here is my last question when will be 258,000 Hawassans Amharic become their mother tongue (adopted Amhric ) like what happened in Adama, and Addis Ababa 98% second generation Addis Ababian forgotten their mother tongue and adopted Amharic

መቼ ነው መቶ% የአዋሳ ነዋሪ አማርኛ ተናጋሪ የሚሆነውና , የብሔራዊ ቋንቋ በመናገራቸው ምን ጥቅም ያገኛሉ ብለህ ታስባለህ። ውይም ምን ጉዳት ይኖረዋል ብለህ ታስባለህ ሲዳሞኛ እየቀረ በአማርኛ እየተካ መሄዱ።

I don't think Hawassans are going to forget their native language because of there Protestant Churches are in there native Sidamingna language if Hawassa was Orthodox city like Addis Ababa & Nazret these ppl will forget there language and because of rising nationalism amharic will not grow to its full potential!!
in that case do the Amhara who lived there speak Sidama language or only Amharic ....tell me in your best guess what % of Amhara speak afan Sidama

why would u give up? i am just warming up .. Amhara who livid in oromia and Somalia for last 150 years they dont know the local language... do u think this is the least the Amhara can do learn the language before invoking their constitutional right to live any where they like .. constitution doesnt tell them to destroy the local couture and language// for every right there must be some responsibility . so do u speak Sidama language ?

sad is if u come to Addis Ababa who Amhara claim the simple of Ethiopia 98.7% of second generation lose their mother tongue and adopt Amharic ... and this cant be a simple of Ethiopia melting point of Ethiopia where it show us what would happened if Amhara dominate so we all have to fight it...

Actually, most Amaras, Guraghes, Tigres, Oromos.. are bilingual in the south. Also the 4th largest ethnic group in the south claimed being Amara. The south is quite a mixture. They are not that isolated from the rest of Ethiopia.

You claimed his majesty Haile-Sellassie and Mengistu Hailemariam had forced sidamas to speak Amharic 😆😆😆So who forced the sidamas or the south to speak amarigna today? I was in Sidamo last year. The official language today is AMARIGNA! Woyane tried to 'impose' Sidamigna. The south has rejected tribal language by choice. Amharic was never imposed on anyone. It simply is the nation's megbabiya language.

BTW, who imposed amarigna on our government since the creation of eprdf? Who forced woyane to speak amarigna?? MesaQiya😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😂😂

Don't speak about things you don't know!

Amahric is the official languge of the south because their are more than 50 ethinc groups in the South, all with their own languge. So, it's better to make Amahric official working of South region instead of other language than most ethincs don't understand.

But still, every ZONE in the south use their own ethinc language as an official in their land. If you go to gurage, gurage language is the official languge not Amahric.

Many people in South hate that their language is not well represented in their own tribal land. Its one issue thats pushing them to Create their own region because they want their children to grow up with their languge. And languge in education was a huge proplem in sidama zone before.

Actually, people in the south are multilingual. They communicate perfectly with each other . Do not forget that the south is a region that has the right to use it's languages in its own ZONE. Let me explain this

Sidama zone is allowed to use sidamigna which they did use for few years, probably 2/3 years. After trying it they decided they prefer Amarigna! So as welayita, same story..

Perhaps it is YOU who should NOT talk about something you do not know

No. That's a lie. The official sidama zone language is sidamic and not amahraic. Same thing in welayta. I remember that the language issue was very bad in sidama Hawasa because they were confused in which language the primary school should be given. But the official language their is still sidamic. Amahraic is only the working language for the south region, because their are more 50 ethinc group their.

Actually, people in the south are multilingual. They communicate perfectly with each other
Your missing the point. I don't know what you meant by that sentence. Their are more than 50 language in the South, and most people only use Amahric as a bridge to communicate. They don't have one single south language that can replace Amahric. Even if they had one, they still would fight over it because all south language should have equal status in their region. Many of them being multilingual, which I doubt, iscnot related to what we were talking about.

Before you accuse me of lying please inform youself..and why would I lie? Again Sidama Zone, not KILIL, had used sidamigna for administration matters in the 90s (Ethiopian calendar), after a 2/3 years trial, they rejected it. Most of them didnt understand the Latin alphabet to write sidamigna.. so they said good bye to it.

As far as I know, till the end of last year, Amarigna was the official/working language of the majority so be it! In the 90s I have witnessed sidamigna was the official/working languag for 2/3 years. I have filled & submitted a form in sidamigna. They chose amarigna at the end. That was the case till the end of last year. I was there and submitted a form in amarigna to the office of City administration. Remember butajira is in the south and uses Amarigna. They had a choice to be schooled in guragigna too, if they're pleased. But they have said thank you but no thank you'! Welayita and many more zones too. Hence amarigna the official language of the south. Let's see when sudamo becomes kilil in hat language they will choose.. history will repeat itself, again🙃

Regarding people in the South being multilingual what I meant was most people do speak more than one language. A sidama might speak oromigna, gedeo, welayita... It's very common to hear a welayita speak sidama language or oromo speak sidamigna, gedeo speaks welayitigna.. But, of course above all, they all speak Amarigna. So,vobviously the choice for majority people.. so be it!!

BTW my own mother grew up in the south. She speaks fluently- amarigna, oromigna, sidamigna, and could communicate welayitigna.. that's how people lived in the south.. 8)
