The Tuwat language (Touat, Tuat) is a Zenati Berber language. It is spoken by Zenata Berbers in a number of villages in the Tuat region of Algeria, notably Tamentit (where it was already practically extinct by 1985) 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.
