From the LDC Language Resource Wiki
Berber is a large family of Afro-Asiatic languages spoken across much of Northern Africa (Ethnologue), mainly in Morocco and Algeria, with small communities in populations in Libya and Egypt. The ISO 639 identifier for the Berber languages is ber; Ethnologue has no single identifier for the group.
This survey concentrates on the three major Berber languages or dialect groups of Morocco: Tarifit, Central Atlas Tamazight, and Tachelhit. The name Amazigh, a Berber name for the people themselves, has recently been also used for these three languages collectively (Ameur et al.). The family is also called Tamazight by some, but that risks confusion with individual languages. -- Some resources are also listed for other Berber languages, especially Kabyle.
Amazigh is multi-dialectal with no de facto standard form, although the Moroccan Institut Royal de la Culture Amazighe (IRCAM) has proposed one that has gained some acceptance. The dialects are basically mutually intelligible, except for the extremes. Morphologically there are few differences, the principal differences being lexical and phonological; the latter are not generally reflected in writing.
The three main Moroccan dialects of Berber/Amazigh are collectively called "shilha" (شلحة) in Arabic:
Sometimes known in Arabic as "soussi" (سوسي) or "cleuh" (شلوح). Spoken in south-west Morocco, in an area between Ifni in the south, Agadir in the north and Marrakech and the Draa/Sous valleys in the east.

Amazigh syntax is basically VSO. The phonology has contrasts of voicing, pharyngealization, and tenseness in both stops and fricatives, and a simple three-vowel system plus epenthetic schwa. The verbal morphology involves infixation and alternation of vowels and of tenseness, as well as prefixes, suffixes, and circumfixes, and distinguishes gender in the second and third persons.
The Berber languages are written in three scripts. See also Encodings and Fonts.
Tifinagh, the Berber alphabet, is also sometimes called Neo-Tifinagh to distinguish it from historical forms. Unicode range 2D30-2D7F. See Omniglot, Wikipedia. IRCAM, Morocco's Royal Institute of Amazigh Culture, has a standard for Moroccan Amazigh.
The Unicode pages for Arabic script are
- Arabic 0600-06FF
- Arabic Supplement 0750-077F
- Arabic Extended-A 08A0-08FF
- Arabic Presentation Forms-A FB50-FDFF
- Arabic Presentation Forms-B FE70-FEFF
- IRCAM has developed a Roman-alphabet standard, with some diacritics (caron and underdot) and additional letters (capital and small Roman letters open e and gamma): (Č č Ḍ ḍ Ǧ ǧ Ḥ ḥ Ɛ ɛ Ṛ ṛ Ɣ ɣ Ṣ ṣ Ṭ ṭ Ẓ ẓ). See Wikipedia: Berber Latin Alphabet (CC-BY-SA),(GFDL). It is used in a number of publications beyond IRCAM's own.
- Some publications still use IRCAM Roman orthography in idiosyncratic 8-bit encodings rather than Unicode. These may include variant glyphs, such as Σ and Γ for capital Ɛ and Ɣ. An example from The Amazigh Voice / Taγect Tamaziγt (Vol.8 No.1, p.13); the lowercase gamma (γ) appears in the original as "p", U+0070:
- Γas akka, Ṛum tuzen γer Tmazγa kra n Iḥerriyen imeqranen, wid yuγ lḥal zik d iqerra n kra n temsal.
- There are also other Roman orthographies. These are here called Roman script, or ASCII if without diacritics and non-Roman letters.

- Abstract: “Amazigh language, as one of the indo-European languages*, poses many challenges on natural language processing. The writing system, the morphology based on unique word formation process of roots and patterns, and the lack of linguistic corpora make computational approaches to Amazigh language challenging. In this paper, we give an overview of the current state of the art in Natural Language Processing for Amazigh language in Morocco, and we suggest the development of other technologies needed for the Amazigh language to live in "information society".”

Unicode test pages
The Afus fonts Afus deg Wfus 1 and Afus deg Wfus 2 map the Tifinagh character set into one byte. This encoding maps most characters onto Roman equivalent codepoints, so Afus-encoded text displayed in a Unicode or ASCII font can be viewed as a transliteration.
Some sites (e.g., Les Aurès' Prénoms imazighen) intermix Amazigh and French without applying font code, so that the Tifinagh characters appear as the glyphs at the corresponding Latin-1 code point. E.g.:
- Nom : tasel$a / Taselgha.
