Somali is a Cushitic language spoken mainly in Somalia. Many also speak it in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Djibouti. About 15 million people use it, and it is Somalia's official language. Besides, it's a common language for communication in this region.

Tone matters in the Somali language. A word's pitch can alter its meaning. This language has tones that are high, low, or falling. It possesses a diverse range of sounds. Certain sounds, like /θ/ and /x/, are distinctive to it. Vowel sounds in words change based on their position, either front or back. This phenomenon is known as vowel harmony.

Consonant length in this language can influence the meaning of a word. Words like "balli" and "bal" don't mean the same. There are specific rules governing sound arrangement. No word can begin with two consecutive consonants.

Somali uses the Latin alphabet today. But, there's a unique script called Wadaad's Writing. It was made in the early 20th century.
