Description:This brief sketch was written during a workshop held in August 2014 in Asosa, Ethiopia. The purpose of this book is to make the Gwama community aware of the wealth and variation of the Gwama lang¬uage. The language has an intricate system of forms and rules, which all speakers use in their daily lives, often without being aware of them. Some of these forms and rules are presented in this little book. The goal of this book is not to present a full and comprehensive description of the Gwama language. This is beyond the scope of this work, and it would require a different approach to the language. Many forms of the Gwama language are not even mentioned here. Also this book tries to use words that are understandable by a wide audience. The hope is that it can be translated into the Gwama language to make it accessible to all Gwama speakers. Therefore this book will disappoint everybody who wants to see a description of Gwama according to the latest linguistic models and terminology.
