Tunisian Arabic

Tunisian Arabic, or Tunisian, is a set of dialects of Maghrebi Arabic spoken in Tunisia. It is known by its 11 million speakers as Tounsi (تونسي) "Tunisian" or Derja "everyday language" to distinguish it from Modern Standard Arabic. Tunisian Arabic is a part of the Maghrebi Arabic dialect continuum, and as such has been greatly influenced by the other Maghrebi dialects, especially Moroccan Arabic and Algerian Arabic. It has also been influenced by French, the official language of Tunisia, and Italian, which used to be the predominant language in Tunisia.
