Somali (or Af-Soomaali, pronounced [æf sɔːˈmɑːli]) is an Afro-Asiatic language, belonging to its Cushitic branch. The Somali language is spoken by ethnic Somalis in Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Yemen and Kenya, and by the Somali diaspora. Over the centuries, a number of various writing systems have been used to express the Somali language in writing like Osmanya script, Wadaad writing and most recently, the Latin script. It is believed that an ancient Somali script existed, but it is long lost and little is known of it.
