Nice thread, I liked the tarifit better Concerning that map, I'm just wondering why the extreme south of Tunisia is colored, that place is empty lol Also is the tamaceq so different from (northern dialects)?
I looked but I don't know why there are no long videos of Tunisian shelha speakers. I found this one he speaks it at the beginning
And this song
The song maybe is from the north while the man speaking is from the south, I'm not really sure if there is differences but maybe I'm assuming the southerns speak similar to Western Libyans Here is a Libyan supporting his moroccan brodas

All these Berber languages sound so refreshing to my ears. I wish one day I'll be able to speak like my ancestors did (they'd certainly spoken something between the two languages corresponding to the areas I circled in yellow. In red, I circled where my tribe is located )
I gave my cat a berber name : "Tashemlalt" (= the white one) xD

Haha, that's a cool name Tashemlalt in fazaz (middle atlas)means "the blonde one" actually, "the white one" is Tamellalt or tumlilt.
Your ancestors probably spoke a Zenati dialect like Riffian or Warayni, because they were the first ones to settle in the north.
Wow really ? xD I picked that name from Riffian (west Riffians say Tacemrart and Beni Iznassen use (the less weird xD) Tacemlalt), you're right And as for those ancestors, I think they used some kind of Ghomari because we've got many villages with typical Ghomari feminine plural mark "-an" (as in "Tizigh-an"). ALTHOUGH my grandmother used (the very Zenati !) "azellif" in arabic sentences to describe sheep's head ! And our tribe is surrounded by arabized Sanhaji tribes xD . That's a big mess, I think I won't be able to figure out the exact dialect of my ancestors very soon lol And speaking of that, I discovered today that a friend of mine learned some local tamazight from...Jbala from Beni 3rous !!!!!!! xDDDD
By the way, are you Yaxk'ukmo in AS ?

soul49: I can definitely see this forum is dead. Do people still chat in other areas? I've been very busy over the past year with university work and other stuff, but would be cool to catch up with folks on occasion. Just know I'm still alive lol.
