The Tigrinya people (ብሄረ ትግርኛ/ትግርኛ), also known as Tigrigna, are a Semitic-speaking ethnic group who are indigenous to Eritrea. They speak the Tigrinya language.[1][2][3][4][5] The classification of the language that the Tigrinya people speak is North Ethiopic, which is distinct from the language spoken by the Amhara ethnicity, due to its closer proximity to the common paternal language of Ge'ez, in neighboring Ethiopia. There also exists a sizable Tigrinya community in the diaspora.
