Amazigh words and weddings

Marriage ritual in southwestern Morocco

The study that we present here concerns the ethnolinguistic analysis of wedding songs collected in four rural localities of the Tachelhit geographical area: Tafrawt, Ayt l) .md, lmi-n-Tanut and JdawTanan. All these localities are located in mountainous areas: the western slope of the western Anti-Atlas (Tafrawt and Ayt l) .md) and the western High Atlas (lmi-n-Tanut and ldawTanan). These songs, called in tachelhittanggift, accompany the entire stage of the wedding ritual
