TashlHeet  1

Even under the best conditions, learning a new language can be challenging.
Add to this challenge the rigors of Peace Corps training, and you‟re faced with
what will be one of the most demanding-and rewarding-aspects of your Peace
Corps experience: learning to communicate to Moroccans in their own language.
But it can be done. And rest assured that you can do it. Here are a few reasons

 You are immersed in the language: some people may need to hear a word
three times to remember it; others may need thirty. Learning TashlHeet
while living and training with Moroccans gives you the chance to hear the
language used again and again.
 You have daily language classes with Moroccan teachers: you‟re not
only immersed in the language; you also have the opportunity to receive
feedback from native speakers on the many questions that predictably
crop up when one learns a new language.
 Peace Corps has over forty years of experience in Morocco: your
training, including this manual, benefits from the collective experience
gained by training thousands of Americans to live and work in Morocco.
You will benefit from and contribute to that legacy.

Despite these advantages, at times you may still feel like the task of
learning TashlHeet is too much to handle. Remember that volunteers like you
having been doing it for decades, however. One of the most rewarding aspects
of your time will be communicating with Moroccans in TashlHeet, surprising them
and yourself with how well you know the language. When that time arrives, your
hard work will have been worth it.

In order for trainees to move quickly into TashlHeet, Peace Corps uses a
system of transcription that substitutes characters of the Latin alphabet (a, b,
c, d, …) for characters from Arabic script )... ،‫ ج‬،‫ ث‬،‫ ب‬،‫)أ‬. With this system, it
isn‟t necessary for a trainee to learn all of Arabic script before he or she begins
to learn to the language. On the contrary, once you became familiar with the
system, of transcription, you will be able to “read” and “write” TashlHeet fairly

quickly-using characters you are familiar with. You will also learn Arabic script
during training, but with transcription it isn‟t necessary to know it right away.
Throughout the book, therefore, you will always see both the Arabic script and
the transcription. Becoming familiar with the Peace Corps‟ system of
transcription is one of the best things you can do, early on, to help yourself
learn TashlHeet. Practicing the different sounds of TashlHeet until you can
reproduce them is another. This introduction is intended mainly to help you get
started the system with of transcription, and as a result it will mention only
briefly the different sounds of TashlHeet. However, a fuller explanation can be
found on page 204.

Sounds you already know
The large majority of consonants in TashlHeet are similar to sounds that
you have in English. The vowels in TashlHeet are similar to English vowels. In the
following table, each transcription character that represents a sound you
already know will be explained. The sounds are not necessarily what you may
expect, but each character was matched with a sound or good reasons.

There are eight consonants in TashlHeet that you do not have in English. It may
take you some time to be able to pronounce these correctly. At this point, what‟s
important is that you learn the transcription of these sounds. See page 204 for
more information on how to pronounce the sounds in TashlHeet.

Transcription Arabic Sound
Character Character

‫ض‬ The TashlHeet These sounds are pronounced
emphatic “d” like their non-emphatic

‫ص‬ The TashlHeet counterparts, but with a
emphatic “s” lower pitch and agreater
The TashlHeet tension in the thongue and
t ‫ط‬
emphatic “t” throat.

‫ق‬ Like the English /k/ but pronounced further back
in the throat

‫خ‬ Like the „ch‟ in the German “Bach;” some people
use this sound to say yech!

‫غ‬ Like the x sound above, but pronounced using your
voice box; similar to the French “r”

‫ح‬ Like the English “h,” except pronounce deep in the
throat as a loud raspy whisper.
This sound will be difficult at first. It can be
‫ع‬ approximated by pronouncing the „a‟ in “fat” with
the tongue against the bottom of the mouth and
from as deep in the throat as possible

If you see a transcription character doubled, that means that a “shedda”
is over that character in the Arabic script. For example, in the following table,
you will see how the transcription changes for “shedda”, and thus the

is the shedda. That is

and that is why the transcription doubles the letter “s”. and that‟s why there is only one “s” in the transcription. a hyphen will be used to indicate to you that the word has the definite article in front of it. See page 208 for more information on the definite article. It is a visual indicator. To the English speaker. and r) without any vowels between them. Words and syllables without vowels Sometimes you will see syllables or even whole words without any vowels written in them. For some letters. in a sense they both are. Other symbols Sometimes. To learn more about how we pronounce the shedda in Arabic. this seems impossible. The hyphen is there to make it easy for you to see when a definite article is being used. it is indeed possible to pronounce consonants together without articulating a vowel sound. other times the letters before and after the hyphen will be pronounced together. the definite article (the word “the”) is made by adding the letter “L”. For now what‟s important is that you understand the transcription. not an indicator or pronunciation. see page 207. In . which is the break between vowels as heard in the English exclamation “uh oh”. So it is possible. it is made by doubling the first letter. the hyphen does not necessarily indicate a change in pronunciation. These two verbs are pronounced differently. That is to say. Sometimes the rhythm of speech may seem to break with the hyphen. This is normal in TashlHeet. You pronounce these consonants (s. so you must pay attention to doubled letters in the transcription. Which side is correct? Well. The only challenge with More Free PC Tashelhit Lessons & Audios on LiveLingua. Think about the word “street”. however. When you see an apostrophe. Pronounce them with a break in the middle. since we have always been taught that all words must contain a vowel sound. for example. The verb “to water” does have a shedda in the Arabic script. it indicates a “glottal stop”. For others. t. In these instances. if you see an apostrophe you should not connect the sounds before the apostrophe with the sounds after the apostrophe. you do it a lot in English at the beginning of words. Another symbol you will sometimes see is the apostrophe („). you will see a hyphen used in the transcription: it indicates the definite article. TashlHeet  5 Notice that these two verbs are spelled differently in the transcription. In both cases. The verb “to drink” does not have a shedda on the “s” in Arabic script.

The transcription words. that is to say. Why not just write “sh”? A final point about the transcription. At times it may seem overly complicated to someone beginning TashlHeet. That said. However. with certain consonant combinations. for example. Part o learning TashlHeet is becoming comfortable with new consonants combinations and practicing those combinations without necessarily placing a vowel in the middle. only include characters for vowels when there really is a vowel in the word. but it has been carefully thought out and in the end it is the easiest system possible. but it is better to accustom yourself to this as early as you can. it sound to the English speaker like there is a vowel in the middle. All of this concerns a larger point: the transcription system used in this book may appear complex at first. In this case. It may seem difficult at first. in TashlHeet it is normal for the /h/ sound to follow the /s/ sound. the sooner you can make the transition to reading Arabic . The “vowel” is in reality just the normal sound made as one consonant sounds transitions to another. most English speakers will hear something that sounds like the word “stir”. why doesn‟t it just use “sh” for the /sh/ sound? The answer is this: well. If we use the “sh” to represent /sh/ sound. try for a moment to pronounce only the letters “str”. More Free PC Tashelhit Lessons & Audios on LiveLingua.6  Peace Corps/Morocco TashlHeet is that the consonant combinations are new for English speakers (you don‟t put the /sh/ sound next to the /m/ sound. but in TashlHeet we do. the easier it will be to pronounce TashlHeet correctly. even if there isn‟t. For example. not the whole word “street”. you will notice. because it possible to represent /s/ plus /h/ and /sh/ plus /h/ (yes. there would not be any way to represent /s/ plus /h/ sound. in TashlHeet both these combinations are used).

Cultural points. Greetings and farewells (goodbyes) are two important aspects of Moroccan life. For example. Do not be surprised if you are in a group and you are not greeted as others are in the group (people may be shy to greet a stranger). It takes time for two people to exchange different questions and answers which interest them about each other. then the way you greet the first person is the way you should greet everyone in the group. Greetings change from one region to another. kissing cheeks head or hands. shaking hands. If you greet a group of people. you will be able to:  Greet people and introduce yourself in TashlHeet.

TashlHeet  65

The imperative is used to give commands: Go to the store! Open the
window! Study TashlHeet! The positive imperative tells someone to do
something, the negative imperative tells someone not to do something. The
imperative acts as the infinitive of verbs in TashlHeet.

In the following table, all the examples are equal to the English command,

To speak sawl ‫ضاوه‬
You (m, f s) sawl ‫ضبوي‬
You (m, p) sawlat ‫ضبوال د‬
You (m, p) sawlamt ‫ضب الِ ذ‬
When a verb ends with a vowel, “y”(‫ )ي‬is placed between this vowel and
the suffix.

To say/tell ini ‫إني‬
You (m, f s) ini ً ‫إٴ‬
You (m, p) iniyat ‫إٴٍب د‬
You (m, p) iniyamt ‫إ ٴ ٍبِ ذ‬
To negate the imperative, we can use “adur” (‫ )أدور‬before the verb, which
corresponds to the verb combination that you would usually use:

Don‟t go! adur tddut! !‫أدور رذّوُ د‬
Don‟t speak! adur tsawlt! !‫أدوررطبوٌ ذ‬

Therefore. there are two patterns of prefixes and suffixes for conjugating past tense verbs. To this “infinitive” form. you can add prefixes (letters that we attach to the beginning of a word) and suffixes (letters we attach to the end of a word) in order to conjugate the verb.

Rather. the infinitive form of the verb must be changed before it can be used with the prefixes and suffixes. there are two categories of verbs. we use the imperative (second person singular masculine). he eats. In TashlHeet. we simply use the infinitive form of the verb with the prefixes and suffixes of the pattern. therefore. the past tense stem is different than the infinitive. Unfortunately. In other words. they eat). For the other category. the verb skr (‫ضىر‬ ) is translated as “to do”.  Past tense. we usually learn the “infinitive” form of the verb (e.g. while in reality skr (‫ضىر‬ ) means do (see “imperative” page 65).com .

4- PLACE ADVERBS “D” (‫ )د‬AND “N” (‫)ن‬.
The place adverbs “d” and “n” are always attached to some verbs, and should not
be confused with the unattached conjunction “d” (and) or unattached preposition
“n” (of).

The adverb “d” normally translates to “here”.

The adverb “n” translates to “there”.


He sent (to here) a letter yuznd yat tbrat idgam.
He sent a letter to us. yuznaġd yat tbrat.

He worked in the US for ixdmn ġ mirikan sin

In the negative, “d” and “n” are attached to the negative indicator “ur”
(‫ )أُور‬and are not attached to the end of the verb.

Unlike other verbs, the verb “ašk” (to come) always uses the place adverb
“d”. Because you always use the place adverb, you can think of this verb as
meaning either “to come” or “to come here”. It is conjugated like pattern 2
verbs, with the “d” following the past tense suffixes.

Rabat to see the doctor.

Why did you come
max lliġ d tuškam?
He didn‟t come to study. urd yuški baš ad iġr.

When “ašk” is used with “n”, it roughly means “to come there”. For English
speakers, this is confusing since we would never use the verb “come” with the
adverb “there”. In TashlHeet, the expression is used when the subject “comes”
(i.e. moves/goes toward another person) but the place is not near the speaker.

In English, we have pronouns for the subject of a sentence: I, you, he, she, we,
and they. But we also have object pronouns that we use after verbs, which can
be either direct or indirect:

Direct:  He hit me.  I wrote a letter.

 I saw her.  I wrote it.

Indirect:  Ask him a question.  I talked to Hassan.

 We gave them some cake.  I talked to him.

So far, you have learned the independent pronouns (see page 10) and the
possessive pronouns (see page 10). Here are the direct and indirect object

Now make the /z/ sound. /b/. Sounds like /s/ are called voiceless. Make the /k/ sound. but rather we completely block the air flow for a moment. /k/. /f/. but with /z/. Notice how air is being forced through the space between your tongue and the gum ridge in your mouth. still holding your hand to your throat. /g/. we don‟t use our voice box. by forcing air between some small opening. /z/. is called a stop. Some sounds in English that are fricatives are: /s/. This sound is also a fricative. practicing with a native . Here. Then we can use this knowledge in order to work on Arabic sounds. that sound is called a fricative. you will notice how we build up a lot of pressure with air. You‟ll notice that with /s/. Sounds like /z/ are called voiced. When a sound is produced like this. While making the sound.  Fricatives and stops Make the /s/ sound.  Voiced and voiceless sounds We can also categorize consonant sounds according to whether we use our voice box or not.  UNDERSTANDING HOW SOUNDS ARE MADE. A sound that is produced by blocking the air flow. it is indeed possible for you to learn how to pronounce the sounds of tashlheet. becoming aware of how to make the different sounds and.

Make the /s/ sound. we are not forcing air through a small opening at a constant pressure. since our voice box vibrates. because in order to make it we must force air between our teeth and our bottom lip. and others. Learning to pronounce tashlHeet sounds correctly entails two things: first. /th/. since we don‟t use our voice box. /p/. /v/. Make the /f/ sound. and then release the air stream in one big burst. hold your hand over your throat. Some stops in English are: /t/.

and then “voice” it. Now say “x” several times. and you will produce this sound. Both are “stops. the Scottish pronunciation of loch. paying attention to how your voice changes when you say “g”.  The /t/ sound is voiceless and the /d/ sound is voiced. Try the following exercise. except it is “voiced. Practice doing this first without making a sound. take a minute to become more familiar with your throat muscles. The result is “ġ”.  PRONUNCIATION OF NON-ENGLISH CONSONANTS  The sound “q” ( ).  The sound “ġ” ( ). Is it voiceless or voiced? Now make the sound /d/. all you need to do is vibrate your voice box at the same time. First. although it is wide open. The “q” sound will be made further back in the throat than the k sound. if you can make the sound “x”. The result will be the sound “q”. as if you were at the doctor‟s office. At this point. Think of the correspondence between the sounds “k” (kite) and “g” (game): “k” is voiceless and “g” is voiced. Both are voiceless “stops” that are made by releasing air forcefully after completely blocking the air flow momentarily. The sound “x” is a voiceless fricative formed around the same place as the sound “q”. The only difference is where in the throat the speaker blocks the air flow. Pronounce “k” and “g” several times. Voiceless or voiced? Let‟s look now at some of the difficult tašlнit sounds. pull it back so that the base of your tongue closes off air by pulling back against the throat. Open your mouth and say aah.

Your tongue should be flat in your mouth. make a sound by releasing the air forcefully. It is found in many European languages: the Russian “x”. Instead of closing off the windpipe with the back of your tongue completely. Some people use this sound to say yech! To pronounce “x”.

and note the position of your tongue. The sound “s” is the emphatic counterpart of the sound “s”. It has no equivalent in English. Alternately tighten and relax them for a few minutes. It should be toward the front of the mouth and high. Constrict those same muscles so that air can just barely squeeze through your throat. You can notice this contraction of the throat easily by prolonging the „l‟ in “full.”  The sound “H” ( ). The sound “н” is a voiceless fricative pronounced deep in the throat. “d” ( ). the sounds “s”. The rest of your tongue will drop lower inside your mouth. starting at the back of your teeth.

They are pronounced with greater muscular tension in the mouth and throat and with a raising of the back and root of the tongue toward the roof of the mouth. The following exercises are designed to make you aware of what these muscles can already do. All the emphatic sounds are lower in pitch than their non-emphatic counterparts. The sound “ġ” is pronounced using these same muscles in similar fashion. Put your hand on your throat at the Adam‟s apple and constrict the muscles on the inside. Now. The emphatic or velarized consonants in tašlнit are pronounced by placing the tip of your tongue in this spot and dropping the rest of the tongue as low as you can. 3. By now.

Pronounce the sound “s” aloud. you are not closing off the windpipe entirely. so that you can use them to speak Arabic. you may think of “ġ” as similar to the sound you make when gargling.  The emphatic sounds “s” ( ). The sound of the air coming through your constricted throat muscles is “н”. and “t” ( ). With your mouth closed. first take a few minutes to become better acquainted with some of your throat muscles that you use often. You will find a bony ridge just behind the teeth. Practice them for a few minutes every day. close to the roof. Repeat this with your mouth open. Put your tongue against this ridge. In order to practice this sound. move your tongue back along the roof of your mouth. TashlHeet  205 Alternatively. “d”. and repeat exercise .

The sound r in tashlHeet is not the same as the English “r. throaty sound of “‫”ﻉ‬. we include here a short description of it. The sound is a flap. Say gotta several times in a row very quickly and pay attention to what your tongue is doing. and then to pronounce it surrounded by other letters in a word. You should feel it flapping against the roof of your mouth behind your teeth. in which you constricted your throat muscles as if you were blocking off the air passage from the inside. You must learn to pronounce it properly to be understood. first to pronounce the letter alone. but it is not a vowel. it indicates that the consonant is to be held twice as long as a normal consonant. But because it is new. You can feel this by putting your hand on your throat. Now pronounce the sound alone. and at first. this stress is indicated by a doubling of a consonant (see page 4).  The sound “‫) ( ”ﻉ‬. you must begin to say them and pause in the middle of pronouncing them for a second. Because we constrict our throat muscles and force air through the passageway.  The TashlHeet “r” ( ). the sound ‫ﻉ‬ is a fricative. like the Spanish or Italian “r. when pronounced correctly. this will take some concentration on your part.” It is not difficult.” You already know how to make this sound: it is the sound American English speakers make saying gotta as in gotta go. and feel the muscles contract.206  Peace Corps/Morocco Pronouncing “н” takes practice. say the say sound while vibrating your voice box. changing the breathy sound of “н” into the deep. When there is shedda. It is not as difficult to pronounce as one may first think. the more you practice now. This is easy with fluid sounds like “z” or “r”. Another good exercise is to practice making a whirring sound: rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. the same ones that you use to pronounce н. Do these exercises daily until you have mastered this sound. Say “н”. In transcription. it should be pronounced for twice the length of time. However. You should continually be doing the exercises you learned above for “н”. the sooner you will be able to say it easily. Now pronounce the same sound and “voice” . Vowels do not force air through a partially blocked passageway. a “shedda” is a pronounced stress upon a letter in a word. ‫ ﻉ‬has its own unique beauty and can be a very expressive sound. and thus cannot be fricatives. but you need to exercise your throat muscles. That is. Some trainees think that ‫ ﻉ‬sounds like a vowel. We now come to one of the most distinctive sounds in tashlHeet: ‫ﻉ‬. however.

It is worth noting that all the Tashlheet words that bear”al” as definite article are borrowed from Arabic ( see pages 12. Here is the Arabic script for “the book”: The definite article These two letters are always written in Arabic script for a definite article.

Sometimes. 13). In English. The indefinite articles talk about something non-specific: “I saw a dog today” (you don‟t know the dog I‟m speaking about). Recognizing when shedda is used and learning to pronounce it correctly yourself is an important task in your study of tashlHeet. it is composed of two letters. Compare the difference between the single “d” in “lay down” and the double “„dd” in “laid down. the definite article is not always used exactly as in English. this doubling of a consonant sound never occurs in the middle of words.
