Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chadian Arabic or Shuwa Arabic is the variety of Arabic spoken in the region of Lake Chad. It is the first language for nearly one million people in Chad, Cameroon, Nigeria, Niger, and Central African Republic and serves as a lingua franca in much of the region. In Nigeria, it spoken by 10% of the population of Maidaguri. It is characterized by the loss of the pharyngeals [ħ] and [ʕ], the interdental fricatives [ð], [θ] and [ðˤ], and diphthongs. But it also has /lˤ/, /rˤ/ and /mˤ/ as extra phonemic emphatics. Some examples of minimal pairs for such emphatics are /ɡallab/ "he galloped", /ɡalˤlˤab/ "he got angry"; /karra/ "he tore", /karˤrˤa/ "he dragged"; /amm/ "uncle", /amˤmˤ/ "mother". In addition, Nigerian Arabic has the feature of inserting an /a/ after gutturals (ʔ,h,x,q).
