Darija in English
Darija , means "everyday/colloquial language"; it also appears as , derija or darja. It refers to any of the varieties of colloquial Arabic subsumed under Maghrebi Arabic. Like all colloquial Arabic varieties, it is generally used for everyday speech, in TV plays, drama, some advertising, social networking, etc., with Modern Standard Arabic ( ), French, or other languages used for formal speech and for written communication. Darija shares the majority of its vocabulary with standard Arabic, but it also includes significant borrowings from Berber (Tamazight) substrates, as well as extensive borrowings from French, and to a lesser extent Castilian Spanish and even Italian (primarily in Libya) – the languages of the historical colonial occupiers of the Maghreb. Darija is spoken and to various extents mutually understood in the Maghreb countries, especially Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia, but can often be unintelligible to speakers of other Arabic dialects. Darija continues to evolve by integrating new French or English words, notably in technical fields, or by replacing old French and Spanish ones with Standard Arabic words within some circles.
