This book, which is the tenth of a series of works on Moroccan Arabic
secret languages, proposes an extremely detailed account of the "ġuş", a
secret language of one region in the south-east of Morocco, the Tafilalet.
The language in question contains a rich number of varieties. This work,
which addresses linguistic areas of main concern to graduate and
post-graduate students, linguists, phonologists, morphologists,
sociolinguists, dialectologists, arabicists and sociologists, focuses on
the secretising of a multitude of words, prepositions, verbs, phrases,
clauses and sentences, for instance. For descriptive convenience, this
study proposes eight chapters and a detailed bibliography. Chapter one is
concerned with major previous works related to secret languages worldwide,
for instance. Chapter two introduces major sociolinguistic notions of the
"ġuş". Chapter three investigates the encoding of prefixless words. Chapter
four analyses the encoding of prefixed items. Chapter five scrutinizes the
secretising of prepositions. Chapter six aims at a description of the
encoding of syntactic structures. Chapter seven illustrates the use of the
"ġuş" in everyday-like conversations. Chapter eight presents a detailed
account of the rules governing all the varieties of the x…xəyyuC family
with reference to all MA words, phrases, clauses and sentences and a
detailed account of the data. In one variety of the x….xəyyuC "ġuş" a
consonant of the word is substituted by the consonant of the operating
variety (x). Then the new word is followed by the disguise element
"xəyyuC", that is another copy of the substituting consonant (x), the
disyllabic "əyyu" and the substituted consonant of the word (C). In this
respect, the word "kla" (eat), for instance, is encoded in one variety of
the x….xəyyuC "ġuş" as "sla səyyuk".
