Djerbi[edit]

Isn't Djerbi just a Tunisian dialect of Shilha? That at least would appear to be the case from Ethnologue. If they're wrong, it would be best to have a source.

Also, this article is inconsistent with Zenati languages. — kwami (talk) 22:15, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

You've misread Ethnologue. Djerbi is listed as a dialect of Nafusi. In the comments section, they mention that "Shilha" is used as a cover term for Berber dialects in Morocco and Tunisia. This is different than the language Tachelhit which is more commonly known as Shilha. In the comments to this latter entry, it indicates that "Shilha" is an also an Arabic term for all Berber varieties. But in its most common English usage, "Shilha" only refers to Moroccan Tachelhit. --Taivo (talk) 23:13, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
