Tuwat (Touat) is the Zenati Berber language of a number of villages in the Tuat region of Algeria, notably Tamentit (where it was already practically extinct by 1985[1]) and Tittaf, to the south of Gurara Berber. Ethnologue 16 considers them a single language, "Zenati", but Blench (2006) classifies Gurara as a dialect of Mzab–Wargla, and Tuwat as a dialect of the Riff cluster.
