The Moroccan Arabic "ġuş": Five Categories
Ibn Tofail University, Kénitra, Morocco
So far, twelve families of the Moroccan Arabic secret languages of the Tafilalet (TSLs), namely the “ġuş”, were investigated in detail in several works. In this book, emphasis is on five other and different categories of the TSLs, namely the x…xawinCa, the x…xaxiCa, the x…xinxaC, the x…xawiC and the x…ŗaC cases, together with their intricate and numerous varieties. A sample of two varieties from each of the families above respectively encode the word “ktab” (a book) as: “wtab wawinka” and “stab sawinka”, “btab babika” and “ptab papika”, “ftab finfak” and “dtab dindak”, “dtab dawik” and “htab hawik”, “stab ŗak” and “vtab ŗak”. This book is organised in the realm of five parts that analyse the encoding operations in the TSLs with reference to several parts of speech and structures.
