Applegate, Joseph R.
Shilha, which is spoken in southwest Morocco, is one of the most widely distributed of the Berber languages. The dialect described in the work is found in the area extending from Agadir to Ifni and as far east as Taroudant. This study provides a general description of the structure of the language by examing the phonology, morphology, major form classes, syntax, and relative distribution of the form classes. Sample texts and a vocabulary are included. (RL)
