The aim of this book (which contains two volumes) is to analyze fourteen Moroccan Arabic (MA) "secret languages" ("SLs"). These spread in the Moroccan regions of Azrou, Dar El Guedari, Kénitra, Khémisset and Souk Larbaa (cf. the relevant maps in the map index, Vol. II). In these works, which are follow-ups of ten previous books on MA "SLs", we will tackle the secretizing of numerous types of MA structures with a consideration of prefixless words, prefixed affirmative forms, prefixed negated items, miscellaneous functional words, and syntactic structures. The fourteen "SLs" are classified in terms of their secretizing mechanisms: seven Inversion "SLs", four Substitution-Pseudo-Suffixation "SLs", two Pseudo-Infixation "SLs" and one Re-Patterning "SL".
