Taʽizzi is spoken in Taiz and parts of Ibb. Like the majority of Yemeni dialects, Taʽizzi uses the hard uvular [q] for the classical qāf (ق). Adeni dialect also substitutes dental plosives for dental fricatives: /θ/ becomes /t/, /ð/ becomes /d/, and the two (classical) emphatics, /ðˤ/ and /ɮˤ/, merged into /dˤ/. The dialect also uses /ɡ/ for the Arabic letter ǧīm ج.
