Sound Off BeQa’A! 93 Comments

The number of ambiguous single words you made up; he excuses you came up with; the number of times you decide not to speak, all conspired so that you don’t have to express your self.

I recently had something scheduled in my calendar. One of those things the crew does together and as the organizer I canceled it. The crew got an email saying ‘it’s canceled.’

I got a reply, ‘why did you cancel the event?

I could have said, I am busy, you didn’t confirm, I am really tired, we are too late in the planning, right now it’s just easier to cancel and reschedule; but I didn’t say that.

I said “BeQa’A

Meaning, BeQa’A, for no reason; he replied, ‘ Ok.’

Usually I am not like this. I usually express the exact reason for my actions. And now that I think about it, it’s what I would want if I was in the other shoes.

This single word, the one who is so hip and so Arada is fine and dandy if it wasn’t so ambiguous.

Did I say BeQA, like enough! Or did I say it with an affirmation on the second ‘A.’ Like an offooy, but I couldn’t have said offoy, that could have meant, ‘I am tired of talking to you, you miserable man who doesn’t need an explanation.’

Be’QaA, you guys Offoooye.

I lied though, he actually replied by saying ‘AyeeeeE’ to my initial ‘BeQa’A.’

And what I think he meant was, ‘you are not going to give an explanation are you, you miserable man who is inconsiderate to his good friend.

AyeeeE, how can you say that about me? Offoy BeQagn.

Meaning, I am tired, I don’t what to discuss this at the moment and/or permanently!

Now if we could just say that, there would be more understanding, now express yourself Aradoch!

    like ” you don’t say” but with an addition of begirmet…

    meaning ” you don’t say, i am shocked, are you serious, eshi”
    at the same time.

    I know what she is saying so i like it but come on man

    for the record, I’ve confirmed the day I got the email!

  3. 3 Nolawi

    by saying ayeee

  4. 4 .mike

    I actually shook my head and said, “ayiii yeNolawi neger” :)

  5. 5 mitmita

    I am so happy that you dedicated a blog to the word BeQa. Recently lots of people are using that word a lot. They say that like yemebeQa. Maybe its a guy thing, that you say BeQa, AyeeeE and you understand each other.

    It not enough people, I need to know why, who, where, what and lemin

    Is it just me or others too notice that Nol is becoming more arada by the day :P
    I’m running late and should have left the house minutes ago but I thought why not check Bernos for a sec. That’s not a smart thing to do but, beqa’A!
    Ow, I also like the word ‘BECAUSE! ‘

  9. 9 Alazhar

    beqa’a, yibeqal,yabeqal,abeqa, abqitwal, beqagn, beqat…
    ‘Beqa’a’ is one of the most widely used Amharic word! ‘yante neger beqagn’ – when she doesn’t want to see him again.
    ‘yesuwa neger beqagn’- when he had enough of her.
    ‘programachin izih lay yabeqal’ at end of a show.
    enem beqagn…

  10. 10 ya

    how about the multipurpose “eshi”?

  11. 11 biskut

    in your context beqa’a can be translated to “just because”.another word that is overused these days is “adelele”.i think “adele” is I KNOW .

  12. 12 biskut

    I think ishi can be used in only two ways .eshi ok or eshi ….. like whats up .sort of a conversation starter.

  13. 13 saronm3

    alazar, beautifully put.

  14. 14 wefTebaqi


    Umm… I think you can also say, ‘issssssssshhhhhhi, isssshhhh’ when you chase away birds from a siTo.

    Or u can say it to mean, ‘massage!’, ‘give a hard time’, etc.

    Or you are a typical Habesha, you can mean it to say, ‘no, but i can’t tell you no, so yes as in no’

    wezete …

    You don’t want to linger until the last minute to make your plan so I would recommend reading the waterway guidebook in advance.
    The old art of stealth in carp fishing seems to be as dead as the dodo on most carp
    waters today and it seems to me that the average carp angler is so manically driven to get in a swim set
    up and cast out they have no idea it is far better to think like the
    fish and not an angler first and truly give carp the respect they deserve
    that will guarantee to give them the catches
    their strive so manically for. Her husband, Ian, is a pilot at the New
    River Air Station near Camp Lejeune.
