Also Known As: Senhaja de Srair Language,Sanhaja Of Srair,Sinhaja Srir


The language of the Senhaja de Srair is a Northern Berber language spoken in the southern part of the Moroccan Rif. It is most closely related to the Atlas languages, but heavily influenced by the neighboring Tarifit language (also Berber.)

Contrary to the Ethnologue, it is not extinct; Harry Stroomer reports that "Senhaja de Srair is alive" (p. c. quoted in Behnstedt 2002). It is apparently not immediately mutually intelligible with Tarifit, and is spoken only by a small minority among the Senhaja, in the area known as the "Little Senhaja"...... full article at Wikipedia
