The Somali language is a member of the East Cushitic branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family and its nearest relatives are Afar and Oromo. Somali is the best-documented of the Cushitic languages, with academic studies of this language dating back to before 1900. There are an estimated 10-16 million Somali speakers worldwide, including 500,000 who know it as a second language. For a country with no effective central government since 1991, fixed estimates of language speakers must be viewed skeptically. Somali is spoken by ethnic Somalis in Somalia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Yemen, Kenya, and by the Somali diaspora in other countries. In 1972, Somali was decreed as the national and official language of Somalia, adopting a Standard Somali and the use of the Latin alphabet. However, since the outbreak of the Somali civil war in 1991 and the subsequent collapse of the central government, Somali has remained an official language or de facto national language of all regional governments, such as Somaliland and Puntland.
