Comment (by vanillalounge):

 Ok, so further to the discussion on the
 wordpress-in-my/ Polyglots blog]  I suggest to handle it thus:

 * 'Berber' is not a language, but rather a 'language group', according to
 [http://www.ethnologue.com/family/17-36 Ethnologue (Berber)]
 * [http://www.ethnologue.com/language/tzm Tamazight (Central Atlas)]
 '''is''' a language belonging to that group, with its own ISO-639-3 code ,
 * I suspect we need to keep the 'Central Atlas' designation, as there are
 an additional 3 variants for the same language '''name''':
 [http://www.ethnologue.com/language/zgh Tamazight (Standard Moroccan),
 code zgh], [http://www.ethnologue.com/language/tjo Tamazight (Temacine,
 Algeria), code tjo], [http://www.ethnologue.com/language/tia Tamazight
 (Tidikelt, Algeria), code tia]. (fun!)
 * Script is apparently not Arabic, but
 Tifinagh] — ⵜⴰⵎⴰⵣⵉⵖⵜ ''(may not show if the font is not installed)''

 I'll wait for abdessamad's and the original requester's feedback before
