Kayla language

Kayla language

Kayla, or Kayliñña (Ge'ez: ካይላ "kāylā", for the people, Ge'ez: ካይልኛ "kāylññā", Kayla, Amharic, and Tigrinya for the Kayla language) is one of two closely related Agaw dialects formerly spoken by a subgroup of the Beta Israel (Ethiopian Jews). The name is sometimes also used as a cover term for all Beta Israel Agaw dialects. It is known only from unpublished notes by Faïtlovich written in the Ge'ez alphabet, recently studied by Appleyard, and may be intermediate between the western and central branches of Agaw. It appears to be extinct.
