Several works of Terence Mitchell, notably Zuaran Berber (Libya): Grammar and texts, provide an overview of its grammar along with a set of texts, based mainly on the speech of his consultant Ramadan Azzabi. Some articles on it were also published by Luigi Serra.
Zuwarans call their language Mázigh; the term is used of Nafusis as well. Unusually for Berber, the masculine form is used to refer to the language.
The Ethnologue treats it as part of Nafusi, although the two belong to different subgroups of Berber according to Kossmann (1999).
