Shilha Language - Writing System

Writing System

Like many other varieties of Berber, Shilha has been written with several different systems over the years. Historically, the dominant script was an Arabic alphabet. Usage of the Latin script emerged in the 20th century. More recently, the Tifinagh alphabet was reintroduced and is now promoted by the government, though only a small portion of the population can use it.

Famous quotes containing the words system and/or writing:

    All who wish to hand down to their children that happy republican system bequeathed to them by their revolutionary fathers, must now take their stand against this consolidating, corrupting money power, and put it down, or their children will become hewers of wood and drawers of water to this aristocratic ragocracy.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    Such writing is a sort of mental masturbation.... I don’t mean that he is indecent but viciously soliciting his own ideas into a state which is neither poetry nor anything else but a Bedlam vision produced by raw pork and opium.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
