    Sorry, this is no answer.
    In this "thread" you and only you STATE that
    this later which YOU have labelled to make
    it you more authoritative is used
    in "Moroccan Arabic".
    Not a single word of "Moroccan Arabic", nor
    a book, or a region of Moroccan where it is
    supposably used. An image of a street sign or
    a scan from a book is be welcome or
    the period, if it is not used anymore.

    I have lived in southern Morocco and have
    never seen the letter. This does not mean
    that it is not used, but that it has found
    its way into the standard and that one person
    says it is "Moroccan Arabic," is not good enough.
