Title: The Arabic Permutation “şāwġ” of El-Jadida, Morocco
Written By: Nasser Berjaoui
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Afroasiatic Languages 34
Description:

The numerous and detailed operations at work in the “Inversion”/“Backward”
“secret language” (“SL”) of El-Jadida, Morocco, known as “ş-şāwġ”, are
scrutinized in this investigation. The manipulating changes affecting individual
sounds, syllables, words and structures (of all types, categories and lengths)
will be studied, with a consideration of the rich and interesting phonetic,
phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic and discursive effects of the
“SLs” on the MA variety of El-Jadida, generally and most commonly referred to,
in the relevant literature, as the “Aroubi” (villager)/“Doukkali” variety.
