Comments
The Algerian constitution recognizes Tamazight (“Art. 4. Tamazight is also a national and official language. The State works for its promotion and development in all its linguistic varieties in use on the national territory. ). So, Tgargrent, which is a variety of Tamazight, is therefore recognized as an official language, even if it is not directly named. However, despite this status, in practice, Tgargrent has no presence at the official level.
