SIL's dedication to language development past and present
In an attempt to reconcile current (1993) knowledge about Ethiopian languages with the maps available, Giorgio Banti and Klaus Wedekind spent some time considering how best to update the 1993 version of the Ethiopia Ethnologue map. The report on maps include missing items to be corrected, other corrections which seem necessary, and charting the unknown for Ethiopia.
