  • Alaba-K'abeena (Alaaba, Alaba, Allaaba, Halaba), also known as Wanbasana, is a Highland East Cushitic language spoken in Ethiopia in the Great Rift Valley southwest of Lake Shala. The literacy rate of native speakers in their language is below 1%, while their literacy rate in second languages is 8.6%; Alaba-K'abeena is taught in primary schools. It has an 81% lexical similarity with Kambaata. However Fleming (1976) classifies K'abeena (also transliterated "Qebena") as a dialect of Kambaata, and Blench (2006) classify both as dialects of Kambaata. The 2007 census in Ethiopia lists Alaba and Qebena as separate languages.A collection of over 400 proverbs in this language has been published with English translations.
