Abstract:

The present work studies one category (family) of the Moroccan Arabic
Secret Languages of the Tafilalet (TSLs), the south-east of Morocco. In
this family, which involves thirty-three varieties, a consonant of the word
is substituted by the consonant of the variety. Then the new word is
followed by the consonant of the TSL, the element "in", the substituted
consonant (that of the word) and the vowel "a". For instance, the word
"ktab" (a book) is encoded in one variety of the TSLs as "stabsinka" and as
"wtabwinka" in another one. The book involves eight chapters and a detailed
bibliography for secret languages research. 

The first chapter presents major previous works on the topic, like the
French Verlan, for instance. Chapter two introduces major sociolinguistic
aspects of the TSLs with reference to such aspects as sex, age and
locations, for example. Chapter three investigates the encoding operations
of prefixless words, like nouns and adjectives. Chapter four scrutinizes
the encoding of prefixed items like verbs and passive participles. Chapter
five is concerned with the encoding of long, short and lengthened parts of
speech. Chapter six aims at a description of the encoding of phrases,
clauses and sentences. Chapter seven mirrors the uses of the TSLs in
everyday encounters. Chapter eight presents a detailed account of the rules
governing the varieties of the x?xinCa family of the TSLs.
