Kebili

4.3
Kebili is a town in the south of Tunisia and one of the main cities in the Nefzaoua region. It is located south of the Chott el-Jerid. It is the capital of the Kebili Governorate.HistoryKebili is one of the oldest oases in Tunisia and North Africa. It holds the earliest hard evidence of human habitation in Tunisia (found near the town) and dates back about 200,000 years. Kebili, along with many other Tunisian cities, became part of the Roman Empire after the Punic Wars.DemographicsKebili's population is more diverse compared to other Tunisian governorates. The population traces its roots to three main groups:Berbers: The native inhabitants of Tunisia and North Africa.Arabs: They came to Kebili in the early days of the Muslim conquest. Most came from the Southern Arabian Peninsula (modern day Saudi Arabia and Yemen). They still hold the tribal names of their ancestors.Black Africans: They were brought to the city when it was a slavery trade center. See the Economy section below.Language and religionWhile Arabic is the dominant language in the region, several differences set it apart from the Tunisian Arabic spoken elsewhere in the country. Most notably, the letter qāf ق is pronounced as a rather than the guttural. Additionally, some villages use the feminine plural pronouns antunna أنتن (plural you) and hunna هن (they). These pronouns are very rare throughout the Arab world and are usually replaced by their masculine counterparts antum أنتم and hum هم. Bedouin vocabulary and expressions have declined in usage among the new generations.
