Malagasy is the national language of Madagascar and belongs to the Austronesian family of languages. It is spoken natively as a first language by most people in Madagascar, as well as by people of Malagasy descent elsewhere. Malagasy vocabulary has much in common with the Ma’anyan language from a region of the Barito River in southern Borneo.
This would show that Madagascar was first settled by Austronesian people from the Malay Archipelago who had past through Borneo, although it is not quite clear when or why exactly such colonization took place. Afterwards, the original Austronesian settlers probably mixed with East Africans and Arabs, amongst others. Malagasy has a rich tradition of oral and poetic histories and legends. The most famous is the national epic, Ibonia, about a Malagasy folk hero of the same name.
Dzongkha, occasionally also called Ngalopkha, is the national language of Bhutan. Linguistically, Dzongkha is a South Tibetan language. It is closely related to and partially intelligible with Sikkimese the national language of the erstwhile kingdom of Sikkim.
Tigrinya is the main language of Eritrea and is also widely spoken in the Tigray area in Ethiopia. It belongs to the Ethiopic branch of the Semitic language family. Tigrinya, spoken by at least half the population of Eritrea, has its own script derived from the ancient language Gee’ez, which is now only used in the Orthodox Church.
The script has over 200 characters, each representing a different sound. While our alphabet states a, b, c and so on, Tigrinya has its own character for ba, be, bi, bo and so on, which are mutants of the basic character. Tigrinya word endings vary according to the gender of the person you are speaking to. It is by any standards a very difficult language to learn.
