tifinnag, tirra n tmazigt

        Tifinagh is a cosonantal-based writing system first used by Tuareg people in Niger and south Algeria. In the last decade, thanks to Berber communities activism, Tifinagh has been officially adopted as the Berber alphabet in Algeria and Morocco. The alphabet used in Morocco contains  34 characters: 4 vowels (i, e, a and u), 2 glides (y, w)  and  28 consonants (cf Ircam-Tifinagh alphabet chart).
