The present work analyses one category (family) of the Moroccan Arabic
Secret Languages of the Tafilalet (TSLs), the southeast of Morocco. In this
family, which involves thirty-three varieties, a consonant of the word is
substituted by the consonant of the variety under usage. Then the new word
is followed by the constant disguise element "rin" and the substituted
consonant (that of the word). For instance, the word "ktab" (a book) is
encoded in one variety of the TSLs as "stabrink" and as "wtabrink" in
another one. The present book involves eight chapters and a detailed
bibliography for secret languages research. The first chapter presents
major methodological backgrounds to our study. Chapter Two introduces major
sociolinguistic aspects of the TSLs with reference to such aspects as sex,
age and locations, for example. Chapter Three investigates the encoding
operations of prefixless words, like nouns and adjectives, for example.
Chapter Four scrutinizes the encoding of prefixed items, like verbs and
passive participles, and their negated versions. Chapter Five is concerned
with the encoding of long, short and lengthened parts of speech. Chapter
Six aims at a description of the encoding of sentences, phrases, clauses
and negated sentences. Chapter Seven mirrors the uses of the TSLs in
everyday-like encounters. Chapter Eight presents a detailed account of the
rules governing the varieties of the X…RinC family of the TSLs.
