Kerning is often used to give a better presentation of characters which might otherwise have too much space between them. In typesetting Ethiopic texts (in a variety of languages), there are some standard pairs of fidels which often looked like they are too far apart. This is a list of 279 pairs which needed kerning in the Abyssinica SIL font. This list should be useful as a starting point for others who develop Ethiopic fonts. Because the amount of kerning varies by the typeface this document does not specify the amount of kerning required.
