SamuelCristea, I think you confused Amharic with Aramaic. They aren't the same language, haha. Or was this a deliberate decision?

Hey Eldad_Mengisto, yeah at first I didn't know the difference but then I found out that they were two different languages. So, I was deciding which I should choose but then I chose Aramaic. I hope you don't mind?

No problem! In hindsight, Hindi and Bengali share more than both with Amharic.

If you could do another Amharic one, maybe one with Tigrigna or Oromo?

Are you sure it's Aramaic you have written there? It's usually written with either Hebrew, Classical Syriac, or Arabic script. Anyway, although both Hindi and Bengali are beautiful languages, Aramaic is just so ancient and beautiful, it has to win for me.
