Moroccan Arabic language resources – Language Links Database

Moroccan Arabic, known as Darija in Morocco, is a form of vernacular Arabic spoken in Morocco. It is part of the Maghrebi Arabic dialect continuum, and as such is mutually intelligible to some extent with Algerian Arabic and to a lesser extent with Tunisian Arabic. It has been heavily influenced mainly by the Berber languages and to a lesser extent by Latin (African Romance), Punic, French, and Spanish. The differences between it and Middle Eastern Colloquial Arabic dialects are significant enough that some linguists classify Moroccan Arabic along with other North African dialects as a different language.
