Native language names
Thread poster: eTran
I'm putting together a list of languages in it's native form and I'm stuck with "Oromo", "Nuer" and "Sorani".
Can anyone give me or tell me where I can find them?

| Sorany is a regional dialect of the Kurdish, not a stand-alone language || Dec 21, 2004 |
Sorany (also variously spelled as "Surani" and "Sorani") is a regional dialect of the Kurdish language, and not a stand-alone language.
Nuer is one of the indigenous non-Arabic languages found in regions of Sudan (mostly) and "Upper Egypt" (albeit very slightly).
As an earlier respondent kindly mentioned, the online "Ethnologue" -- website at < www.sil.org > -- includes a searchable directory with plenty of detail.

Thanks for you responses.
I have finally managed to gather all the languages I need in their native script.

The Oromo language is referred to as afaan Oromo by native speakers. BTW I am a native Oromo speaker. If you want to learn more about Oromo,visit www.oromia. com and/or www.gadaa. com.
