9783895861307: The X...XeyyuC Family of Moroccan Secret Languages

This book, which is the tenth of a series of works on Moroccan Arabic secret languages, proposes an extremely detailed account of the "?u?", 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 "?u?". 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 "?u?" in everyday-like conversations. Chapter eight presents a detailed account of the rules governing all the varieties of the x...x?yyuC family with reference to all MA words, phrases, clauses and sentences and a detailed account of the data. In one variety of the x....x?yyuC "?u?" 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 "x?yyuC", that is another copy of the substituting consonant (x), the disyllabic "?yyu" 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....x?yyuC "?u?" as "sla s?yyuk".
