Summer School in Maltese Linguistics

The Institute of Linguistics, in collaboration with the Department of Maltese, Faculty of Arts of the University of Malta and the Foundation for International Studies, will be organizing its first Summer School in Maltese Linguistics, to be held in Malta from June 15 to 26, 2009.

The Summer School is aimed mainly at those interested in the linguistics of Maltese rather than at those interested in learning Maltese although sessions in the Maltese Language for Foreigners will be held if enough interest is expressed. Specialists in different aspects of Maltese linguistics will lecture on the following areas within more general topics such as:

  • The Sound System of Maltese (e.g. the phonemic inventory and allophonic variation, Maltese phonotactics, syllable structure, stress, intonation);
  • The Maltese Lexicon (e.g. the provenance of Maltese words, word-formation processes);
  • The Grammar and Semantics of Maltese (tense and aspect, topicalisation, subordination, word order, referring expressions);
  • Maltese in Context (e.g. the historical development of Maltese, language use in the Maltese context, the Maltese media, language planning in the Maltese context, Maltese in the context of the EU, computational resources for Maltese, Maltese Sign Language).

No knowledge of Maltese is required, although an interest in the language is a pre-requisite. All lectures on the linguistics of Maltese will be given in English although the Maltese for Foreigners sessions will be held in Maltese.

Questionnaire

The Summer School will consist of two parts:

  1. the Linguistics of Maltese part; and
  2. the Maltese Language for Foreigners option at -
    1. beginner;
