|Atlas Mountains, Souss|
The Atlas languages are a subgroup of the Northern Berber languages spoken in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. By mutual intelligibility, they are a single language spoken by perhaps 14 million people; however, they are distinct sociolinguistically and are considered separate languages by the Royal institute of the Amazigh culture. They are:
- Central Atlas Tamazight (Central Atlas Berber), spoken in the central Atlas Mountains
- Shilha (Tashelhiyt; also rendered Tachelhit, Tasusit; includes Judeo-Berber and perhaps the extinct Lisan al-Gharbi), spoken in southern Morocco
- Senhaja de Srair, spoken in the southern part of the Rif
- Ghomara, spoken in the western part of the Rif
