On the changing situation of Berber in Morocco. Sociolinguistically, Standard Arabic is replacing Berber as lingua franca. Linguistically, contact with foreign languages is changing the Berber language as well. Dangers of these evolutions are listed, and the author argues for the acceptance of language plurality, allowing the survival of languages such as Berber.
