Like some other spoken varieties such as Levantine, Moroccan Arabic lost its interdental fricatives th (/th/ as in thin) and th (/th/ as in those) which became /t/, /s/ and /d/, /z/ respectively.
The Dellys dialect is not very different from the more major Algiers dialect; it is slightly more conservative, though, in that (almost uniquely among old urban dialects) it retains not only qaaf but also thaa and dhaa, whereas in Algiers these become taa and daal.
