About this Item

"The present work, the eighths of a series of books on Moroccan secret languages (the gus) of the Tafilalet (TSLs), the south-east of Morocco, thoroughly investigates three broad categories of the languages in question. These are the x.x?rx?ll?C, the x Ca and the x raCi families. Each of these involves more than thirty varieties. In the x.x?rx?ll?C category, a consonant of the word is substituted by the consonant of the variety under usage (x). Then the new word is followed by a second copy of the consonant of the variety (x) , the syllable "?r" , a third copy of the same consonant (x), the fragment "?ll?" and the substituted consonant (that of the word), that is "C" . Thus, the final encoding strategy shows the fragment: x.x?rx?ll?C. For instance, the word "mat" (die) is encoded in one variety of the x.x?rx?ll?C family as "sat s?rs?ll?m" and as "wat w?rw?ll?m" in another one. In the x Ca category, a consonant of the word is substituted by the consonant of the variety under usage (x). Then the new word is followed by the substituted consonant (that of the word, "C") and the vowel "a". For instance, the word "ktab" (a book) is encoded in one variety of the x Ca type as "stab ka" and as "wtab ka" in another one. In the x raCi family, a consonant of the word is changed by the consonant of the variety under usage (x). Then the newly created word is followed by the constant disguise syllable "ra", the substituted consonant (that of the word, "C") and the vowel "i". For example, the word "sarut" (a key) is secretised in one variety of the x raCi family as "warut rasi" and as "karut rasi" in another one. The present book contains three parts, with each separately investigating one family of the TSLs. This work addresses linguistic areas of main concern to graduate and post-graduate students, linguists, phonologists, morphologists, sociolinguists, arabicists, and sociologists, among others.
