The Library of Congress has published a romanization (transliteration)
table for Amharic showing the syllables and the Latin script equivalents.
You will find it in "ALA-LC Romanization Tables: Transliteration Schemes
for Non-Roman Scripts" published by the Library of Congress.

To order a copy, contact LC's Cataloging Distribution Service at
1-800-255-3666 (according to their Web site you can charge your purchase).
You'll find the CDS Web site at
