The Rise of Amazigh Nationalism and National Consciousness in North Africa:
Defense Intelligence Assessment document, unclassified.
Prepared by Dr. Larry A. Barrie, Strategic Studies Detachment,
4th Psychological Operations Group (Airborne). The term "Amazigh" used in this study is the preferred term for the Berber people of North Africa. The still widely used ethnolinguistic word "Berber" is disliked because of its pejorative and demeaning character--it implies that the person so called is "barbarian" in every sense of the word. "Berber" derives from the Greek word "barbaroi," denoting one who did not speak Greek but babbled unintelligibly and was thus a barbarian. The Romans and Byzantines continued this use of the term. During and after the Arab invasions of the seventh century, the Arabs followed the Greco-Roman practice and referred to the indigenous peoples they encountered as "barbar." The French and English speakers adopted "Berber" and "Berber" coined the word "Barbary," implying that the inhabitants were indeed barbarians.
Toponymie is a science which studies places names (toponymes). It seeks their meaning, their etymology, but also their transformation throughout the centuries. We deal here with the toponymie of Tamazgha (North Africa):
Toponame: Senhaja Explication: (près de sefrou) : c’est un terme qui provient de l’arabisation du teme : Aznag : le brun. C’est de ce nom que provient le terme « M’zenneg » (rougire) dans la darija.
