Subject: Amazigh-Net
In my neverending (ha) search for Language Lists to update the List of
Language Lists, I have found one for Berber. Apparently there is some
doubt as to its future, so I am forwarding a message from the listowner
to LINGUIST and to ARABIC-L in the hopes that readers there may be
able to help by offering a site and the concomitant co-listownership
(which as co-owner of WELSH-L I can say is really no trouble) which
could come with that. Please write to Djamal if you can help.

*----------------------------Original message----------------------------
Your information about Amazight-Net is genuine. The mailing list is
one-year old.
The discussion is in Tamazight, English, or French. Various Amazigh
words or expressions are explained in other languages. We also
discuss the variation in the Language from one Amazigh ethnic
population to another.
The mail exploder is for now running on my machine. This machine may
probably not be available after the end of this academic year. We are
looking for another machine or an alternative to set up a permanent list.
If you, or someone you know, can help us achieve that, we will be
forever grateful.
Tanemmirt-ik (Thank you)
Djamal Bouzida,
On behalf of the Amazigh-Net Committee.

 Together with Bernard Comrie I have been compiling a List of
 Language Lists, to be circulated to the net so that people
 with interests in specific languages can find where such lists
 are. After Version 1.1 went out, I received information about
 your list. Can you please take the time to correct any
 of the information here, especially as to where subscription
 requests should be sent, and the name and address of the list
 owner. Thank you very much.
 List name and address
 Listserver for subscriptions
 Listowner for questions ?
 Description: Discussion of Amazigh (Berber) language and culture, in
 English and French.
 Is discussion ever in Amazigh or other dialects of Berber?
