Sicilian Arabic and Andalusi Arabic are two Maghribi non-Hilālian varieties which share some dialectal features, still attested in Neo-Arabic Occidental varieties (Grand’Henry 2007), though having maintained their own linguistic peculiarities (Lentin 2007, Ferrando 2003). In this paper, some Maghribi Phonological features, found in some Siculo-Arabic works of the Islamic and Norman periods, such as the Cambridge Chronicle, the Opus Geographicum, the Kitāb al-ǧāmiʿ li-ṣifāt aštāt al-nabāt wa-ḍurūb anwāʿ almufradāt and the Uns al-muhaǧ of al-Idrīsī, will be analyzed in comparison with the Andalusi ones attested in some coeval works (Corriente 1977, 2011, 2013 ; Ferrando 1998, 2002, 2004). The attestation of Maghribi linguistic features, such as vowel harmony, imāla, loss of short vowels in open syllables, ressaut and fluctuation between the interdental and dental consonants, in Sicilian and Andalusi works is relevant for the studies of Historical Arabic linguistics as it permits to observe the evolution of these phenomena in a diachronic perspective.
