Welcome aboard a yuma achalhi!

>We don't say hafunast, we say tafunast.

We use both. Sometimes we drop the "T" and use the "h", a unique Tashawit characteristic.

Indeed! We are one people. Of the Moroccan dialects, Tarifit is the closest to Tashawit.

Thanks for your contribution!

Hi,
>what does yegguma refer to in your nickname?

Yegguma means refuses s tshawit. It is title of a shawi song by Djamal Sabri. It is a statement. It means: the shawi refuses to forget; the shawi refuses the hogra; the shawi refuses the injustice...etc

How do you say yegguma s tchalhit?
