I love phonology and I haven't had the chance to find supervision in that. I would like to embark on a research endeavor as an independent researcher. For that matter, I will need to know about references that will allow me gain a good grasp of phonological analysis. I am intending to do an analysis of my variety (Tamazight (Berber)), of which I'm not a native speaker. Thank you infinitely.

Of course, a natural place to start would be a textbook on phonology, of which there are many. A particularly popular one for traditional Generative Grammar is Kenstowicz 1994. To become familiar with a more recent approach to phonology, you might also pick up a textbook on Optimality Theory such as Kager 1999.

Regarding Tamazight, a quick search online turned up some things that could be useful to you:

Good luck!
