The International Association of Maltese Linguistics (Għaqda Internazzjonali tal-Lingwistika Maltija) was founded on October 19 2007 during the first conference on Maltese linguistics at the University of Bremen. The conference was attended by over 50 scholars from France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malta, and the US.

Thomas Stolz (Institute of General and Applied Linguistics (IAAS)) was appointed as the first president, while Manwel Mifsud, chairman of the Kunsill tal-Malti and Professor of Maltese at the University of Malta, Bernard Comrie (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology), Beth Hume (Dept. of Linguistics, Ohio State University), Martine Vanhove ( Langues et Cultures d'Afrique Noire (LLACAN)), and Ray Fabri from the University of Malta's Department of Linguistics were appointed as vice-presidents.

The association's aim is to stimulate the study of Maltese. It will strive to create other university centres of the language outside Malta. This in turn will lead to networking between scholars and researchers from many quarters.
