Many of the language that is in African may have still come from Ethiopia.The word 'Bantu' was first used by Wilhelm Heinreich Immanual Bleak 1827-1875.It meant 'people'.Bantu languages have a stem form such as 'ntu' or 'tu' for the word 'person',and the plural for 'people' in many languages is 'Ba'.Together,giving the word Bantu.
In Amharic or Ethiopic there are many words that relate to 'people' with the phonetic 'ntu' or 'tu' such as 'saytitu'- 'woman' and 'Lijutu' for male child.Ethiopians speak in a Bantu way.
Just some info,anyway,bless...
