Ne in darija instead of li

Salam 3leikum.

I’m trying to figure out wheather NE can be used instead of LI in some phrases.

I found the following sentences:

Kandkhol NE dar.
Had dar NE lbi3.

Is it caused by any regional influence?


it’s better to stick with li instead of ne. when you use ne, it becomes difficult to pronounce

Kandkhol LI dar.
Had dar LI lbi3.

Dear Soufiane

Is it caused by any regional influences or just personal preference?

probably it’s caused by regional influences

Yes this happens primarily in the Northern (shamali) dialect of Morocco.
L sometimes becomes n.
