In this work, the ninth in the series, focus will be on a detailed analysis
of seven types of the Moroccan Arabic (MA) "ġuş", a secret language that
spreads in the region of the south-eastern part of Morocco known as the
Tafilalet. The seven types to be analysed in this work are: the l-CuCi
fuCi/l-CuCәC fuCәC, the mәtt-CaCCi, the mәtt-CaCCi trisa, the mәtt-CaCCi
tifәrkusin, the mәtt-CaCCi trisa/tifәrkusin, the tә-CCiCi wiCi/tә-CCiCәC
wiCәC and the Inversion cases. Seven parts will constitute the book, with
each part analyzing each of the seven types of the "ġuş".

The work separately studies the following aspects of encodings in the seven
secret languages: sociolinguistic characteristics, the distortion of
prefixless words, the effect of the encoding operations on morphologically
inflected words, the encoding of MA prepositions, the changes at the level
of the syntactic structures in MA, a sample of the daily-like uses of the
secret languages in question through discursive samples, a detailed
presentation of the rules of the seven languages, and the delivery of
messages rates in the languages in question. The work is designed for
students of linguistics, typologists, sociolinguists and linguists, for

Linguistic Field(s): Language Documentation
