Moroccan Arabic is a cover term for varieties of Arabic spoken in Morocco. It belongs to the Maghrebi Arabic dialect continuum and is mutually intelligible, to some extent, with Algerian Arabic and Tunisian Arabic dialects. .
Moroccan Arabic is considered a spoken variety of Arabic, not a separate language, despite some efforts of some Moroccan enthusiasts to establish it as a language independent from Arabic.
Modern Standard Arabic, not spoken in daily life, is used for official communications by the government and other public bodies. However, Moroccan Arabic has a strong presence in Moroccan television entertainment, cinema and commercial advertising.
