Berber might become an official language in Morocco

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Find this interesting tidbit in an article in French here on possible constitutional reform in Morocco limiting the king's powers:

Selon le préambule du nouveau projet, la langue amazighe, à savoir le berbère, sera désormais considérée comme seconde langue officielle avec l'arabe.

Une grande partie des 32 millions de Marocains s'expriment dans l'un des trois dialectes berbères.

According to the preamble of the new bill, the Amazigh language, also known as Berber, would be considered the second official language along with Arabic. A large part of the 32 million Moroccans use one of the three dialects of the Berber language.
