[Extract] Wolaitta is an Omotic language spoken in south Ethiopia, in the northern part of the 'Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS)'. Within SNNRPS, Wolaitta is an independent Administrative Zone; the main offices of the Zone are based at Soddo, a town about 390 kilometers south of Addis Ababa. The 2008 national census reports that there are around 1.7 million mother tongue speakers of Wolaitta, and in the previous (1994) census 89,000 second language speakers are reported. Since 1993, the language is used as a medium of instruction in primary and secondary levels (high school) and in administration.
