Amharic term or phrase: አሳዳጊ
Hi

This is, apparently, an idiomatic way of saying orphan: አሳዳጊ የሌለው ልጅ.

Source: Lonely Planet Amharic, p. 116

Please, what does አሰዳጊ mean? Which three-letter root does it come from? I ask so I can look it up in my dictionary.

Best wishes, and many thanks,

አሳደገ or አደገ
Explanation:
The term አሳዳጊ refers to the person who parents a child until child grows up. Literal translation of አሳዳጊ የሌለው ልጅ is a child without a parent/guardian", which is equivalent to orphan.

The root word is አሳደገ. if your dictionary is not listing the word አሳደገ, you should see አደገ
