Abstract:This survey of the nature and development of research on Ethiopian languages in the 1990s reviews what other scholars have already said about the state of Ethiopian linguistics prior to 1990 and examines works of the 1990-2000 decade in terms of comparative/historical and philological studies, theoretical/synchronic descriptions and applied studies, and research facilities and publication possibilities. It points out some of the salient features of the works surveyed and highlights problems that the study of Ethiopian languages has faced, with suggestions for possible solutions. Bibliogr.
