Abstract: This study is an attempt to identify the areas of differences between the details of the constituent structures of the two major parts (noun phrases and verb phrases) of Amharic and English sentences. The whole study has been covered in six chapters. At the initial stage, a review of all available studies on Amharic and english sentences in general and en the contract of the details of the constituent structures of the sentence of the two languages in particular has been made. In chapter two and three the constituent structures of Amharic and English sentences have been described and then concentrated in chapter four. In the last chapter conclusions, findings and recommendations have been provided. The study on the whole indicates that the constituent sturctur8 of Amharic and English have syntactic characteristics in common but it also shows that there are difference when these features are analyzed in details. The study recommends that a wide and exhaustive study on Amharic be carried out in order to contrast it adequately with that of English.
