Kean University <email@example.com> I was interested in your question about how Temashek was written in the past. You might enjoy the old home-grown Tuareg system, called tifinagh; it can be found in the Encyclopaedia of Islam for example. It has not been common, certainly, to write any "Berber" language in Arabic characters, though perhaps not totally unknown. I do not know the policy of the current Libyan government, but no doubt others will.
