Reinventing Negation Patterns in Moroccan Arabic

Abstract : The present chapter examines how new negation patterns are created in Moroccan Arabic in the Oujda region, North East Morocco, through contact with Berber (Tarifit language, North Morocco, see Figure 1).1 The discussed cases concern contact-induced innovation processes in Moroccan Arabic negation, through which the morphological data as well as the syntactic structuring and semantic functioning have been modified by analogy with Berber negation.
