Dealing with the linguistic mix and language contacts in the Jbala region is a delicate undertaking. Beyond the analysis of the regional linguistic landscape, this research tries to demonstrate the circumstances of the development of linguistic variation in discursive practices in family (parents and fans) and in society in the rural environment and not in the urban one. which is more characterized by these phenomena of languages than any other medium. Thus, this study, by questioning the circumstances of the appearance of mixed languages in the jebli space, is situated within the framework of sociolinguistic works which deal with variation and the dominant language / dominated language relationships in large cities. and urban areas (Calvet, 1974 and 2002) and those of dialectal, variationist and developmental sociolinguistics (Chevrot, 1994).
