Title: The “-ĂNNĂŖG-” Pseudo-Infixation Arabic "ġāwş" of El-Jadida, Morocco
Written By: Nasser Berjaoui
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Afroasiatic Languages 33
Description:

The “ġāwş” (a “secret language” of El-Jadida, Morocco) has not been thoroughly
investigated. In this book, scrutiny is on the major mechanisms of the
“language”. Focus is on the overall details that show the multi-faceted
manipulations of single words, phrases, clauses and sentences (of all types and
lengths), taking into account the important idiosyncratic aspects of the
Moroccan Arabic variety of El-Jadida, with its rather longer vowels, among other
things. The “secret language” works on the modifications of the word-to-encode
through a major, and rather context-bound, “pseudo-infixation” of a disguise item
that blurs all the common linguistic boundaries in relation to syllables, affixes,
particles, clitics, words, phrases, clauses, sentences and even discourse
fragments.
