Moroccan Arabic

Maghrebian Arabic dialects are the languages spoken in the various countries that make up the Maghreb; the "central" dialects are those of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya; less well known are Maltese and Hassaniya (Mauritania) (the latter two are taught as introductory courses in Maghrebian Arabic). Central dialects are generally mutually intelligible.

Remember that, with the exception of Maltese, Arabic dialects are languages with an oral tradition that are not written, in the sense that there is no codified orthography; we will therefore learn to transcribe them in phonological notation. Original texts in Arabic script will also be studied.
Inalco offers a complete course in Algerian, Moroccan and Tunisian Arabic. A comparative analysis of all Maghrebian languages is offered at undergraduate level. The aim is first and foremost to give students a scientific knowledge of the system of these languages.
