Argobba (ዓርጎባ)

Argobba is spoken by about 40,000 people in an area north-east of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. It is a member of the Southern Ethiopian branch of Semitic languages and has four main dialects: Harar (extinct), Aliyu Amba, Shewa Robit and Shonke. There is currently a shift among Argobba speakers in favour of Oromo or Amharic, to which Argobba is fairly closely related.

Argobba can be written with a version of the Ethiopic script.
