English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Central Atlas Tamazight ⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖ (amaziɣ). From the active participle ⴰⵎ (am) and ⴰⵣⵉⵖ (aziɣ), whose meaning is unknown but is possibly related to "aze" ("to be strong" in Taznatit), or perhaps "jeɣeɣ" ("to be brave" in Tamasheq); z and j frequently swap out in Tamaziɣt.
