Strangely enough, I managed to pronounce all those words!!!! And I must have
heard some Berber before because they sounded definitely familiar!! I wouldn't
know from where though... (although, we once had an ongoing project at school
to prepare an exposition about the Tuareg, and I remember that my part was
about "culture and language" - I was 10, but already the linguistic expert of
the class ;)))) -. It may come from there, although I don't remember if the
Tuareg are Berber-speaking or not...)

Me too! It's definitely a cool language. I'll look more deeply into it. It
makes for a nice alternative to Arabic and Hebrew among Afro-Asiatic
languages :))) .
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
