Berber-speaking areas belonging to Kossmann's "Tunisian-Zuwara" dialectal group
Zuwara Berber (Zuara, Zwara) is a Zenati Berber dialect spoken in Zuwara on the coast of western Tripolitania - in the district of northwestern Libya.
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.
Ethnologue treats it as a dialect of Nafusi, though the two belong to different branches of Berber according to Kossmann (1999).
