Tamazight

Agldun Amẓyan — in Berber Amazigh.

Tamazight, also spelled Tamasheq or Tamajaq, is a Berber language spoken by various Berber communities across North Africa. It is one of the Berber languages within the Afroasiatic language family. Tamazight is significant not only for its linguistic diversity but also for its cultural and historical importance in the region.

Tamazight is spoken by Berber communities in several North African countries, including Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso. Different regions have their own dialects and variations of Tamazight, reflecting the linguistic diversity of Berber-speaking populations.

Tamazight is part of the larger Berber language group, which includes multiple distinct Berber languages and dialects. These languages are indigenous to North Africa and have been spoken in the region for thousands of years.

Tamazight is typically written using the Tifinagh script, which is an ancient script used by Berber languages. The script consists of various symbols, each representing a different sound or phoneme. Efforts have been made to standardize the script for various Berber languages, including Tamazight.
