The chapter sketches out the history of the study of African languages in North-Eastern Africa: Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia (including Somaliland), South Sudan and Sudan. The focus is on local research traditions and institutions. A separate section deals with Geez studies, due to their unique time depth and importance for the development of native linguistic research in Eritrea and Ethiopia. The time span covered is from the sixteenth century to date, highlighting the dynamically increasing impact of local African linguists, philologists and language practitioners in all of these countries.
