Abstract: Shilha is one of the most widely distributed of the Berber languages. It is spoken in southwestern Morocco, and the dialect described in this dissertation is found in the area extending from Agadir to Ifni, and as far east as Tarouant. Although Shilha has been replaced by Arabic in urban areas , it is still the predominant language in – rural areas. The presence of Arabic has influenced the dialect, however, and traces of this influence are found in the large number of borrowed words that occur in the language. Another example of the influence of Arabic is found in the fact that two methods of counting are used in Shilha.
