Agius, Joseph G. Language analysis of bilingual Maltese-English stuttering children Phdthesis: M. Sc. thesis 1995
Abstract: This study is a comparison of language skills in four bilingual Maltese stuttering children (3 boys and 1 girl) mean age 6:10 (years:months)and four bilingual Maltese nonstuttering children (3 boys and 1 girl) mean age 6:10 (years: months).
Three questions are addressed in the study:
Are there significant variations in the Maltese and English expressive and receptive scores of the bilingual stuttering Maltese children and the bilingual nonstuttering Maltese children? Is there a higher frequency of code-switching in the Maltese and English language of the bilingual stuttering children then in the bilingual nonstuttering children? Is there a higher frequency of stuttering types preceding mixed utterances in the stuttering children's speech sample? The expressive and receptive language ages on the Reynell Developmental Language Scale (RDLS) (1985) in Maltese and English language were compared. The stuttering children scored lower in the receptive and expressive language score of the English language (Mann Whitney U=0, p textless.05). No significant difference was noted in the receptive scores of the Maltese language but nonstuttering children scored significantly higher in the expressive language score of the Maltese language (Mann Whitney U= 0.5, ptextless.05).
A spontaneous speech sample in English and Maltese of 50 utterances was tape-recorded from each child. The stuttering bilingual children used a larger number of mixed utterances in the Maltese language and irregular syntax in the English language then the nonstuttering bilingual children.
Perceived disfluencies were also identified in the stuttering children's speech sample. It was found that a higher frequency of stuttering types preceded mixed utterances in the Maltese language and irregular syntax in the English language.
Two models of disfluencies were used to interpret the results ; the Demands and Capacities model (Adams, 1990; Starkweather, 1987) and the neuropsycholinguistic model (Perkins, Kent, & Curlee, 1991). This suggests that in some bilingual children fluency breakdown occurs as a result of the relationship between linguistic demands and capacities or because of dysynchronies in the development of lexical and syntactic aspects of both languages.

Akkademja tal-Malti Tagħrif fuq il-kitba Maltija II Book 2004
Abstract: Fl-14 ta’ Novembru 1920 saret l-ewwel laqgħa tal-Għaqda tal-Kittieba tal-Malti li llum tissejjaħ l-Akkademja tal-Malti u nħatret Kummissjoni biex tfassal alfabett li fuqu kellhom jinbnew ir-regoli tal-kitba bil-Malti. Sena wara, dan l-afabett kien finalizzat u l-Kummissjoni, l-aktar permezz tal-ħidma ta’ Ninu Cremona, baqgħet taħdem fuq ir-regoli tal-ortografija li tlestew fl-1924 u ġew stampati mill-Gvern Malti fi ktieb li jġib l-isem Tagħrif fuq il-Kitba Maltija.
L-ewwel taqsima ta’ dan ix-xogħol tagħti r-regoli dwar kif wieħed għandu jikteb bil-Malti, imqassmin f’għaxart irjus. It-tieni taqsima tfisser aħjar l-għamla u t-tiswir ta’ kull kelma li għandha tinkiteb jew aħjar, il-morfoloġija tal-ilsien Malti u għalhekk tittratta l-għamliet tal-kliem Malti, in-nisel, it-tiswir u l-bini tal-kelma fil-Malti. Din it-taqsima hija maqsuma fi ħmistax-il ras. Permezz ta’ dan ix-xogħol naqas sew it-taħwid li kien hawn fil-qasam tal-kitba bil-Malti li kien qed jagħmel ħsara kbira l-aktar fl-oqsma tat-tagħlim u tal-letteratura. Fl-1934 l-alfabett u l-ortografija tal-Għaqda tal-Kittieba tal-Malti, saru uffiċjali u kull min jikteb bil-Malti jrid jintrabat li juża dawn ir-regoli.

Akkademja tal-Malti Regoli tal-kitba tal-Malti Book 1998
Abstract: Meta mqabbel mal-kitba ta’ ilsna oħra, nistgħu ngħidu li l-mod ta’ kif għandu jinkiteb il-Malti jista’ jitqies bħala avveniment pjuttost reċenti. Kellna nistennew sal-1921 biex ikollna alfabett iffinalizzat u sal-1924 biex ikollna grammatika li suppost ikunu aċċettati minn kulħadd. Qabel din id-data kien hemm bosta tentattivi oħra biex jitfasslu alfabett u grammatika ta’ lsienna, xi wħud minn dawn it-tentattivi kienu serji u oħrajn, anqas serji, xi wħud qabdu l-art u oħrajn ma sabux xorti. Uħud mill-ewwel tentattivi li nsibu huma dawk tal-Kanonku Ġanfranġisk Agius De Soldanis bil-grammatika (1750) u d-dizzjunarju tiegħu f’erba’ volumi, ix-xogħol tal-Kavallier Thezan u l-grammatiki u d-dizzjunarju ta’ Mikiel Anton Vassalli. Nistgħu ngħidu li Vassalli għaraf tassew it-tiswir tal-ilsien Malti. Fl-ewwel perjodu tiegħu, meta kiteb Il-Grammatica Melitensis jew Mylsen Phoenico-Punicum (1791) kif ukoll fil-Lexicon (Dizzjunarju Malti – Latin – Taljan), kien għadu jemmen li l-Malti kien imnissel mil-Lhudi u l-Feniċju iżda aktar tard, ta’ studjuż li kien, intebaħ li l-Malti kien aktar jixbah lill-Għarbi.
Nistgħu ngħidu li Vassalli kien l-ewwel wieħed li assoċja ittra waħda ma’ ħoss distintiv wieħed fit-tfassil tal-alfabett tiegħu. Madankollu, b’xorti ħażina, xi simboli li uża ma ntlaqgħux tajjeb minħabba li kienu pjuttost strambi għax kienu meħudin fost l-oħrajn, mill-alfabett Feniċju u Grieg. Huwa bidel xi wħud minn dawn l-ittri fil-Grammatica della Lingua Maltese (1827). Wara l-grammatika ta’ Vassalli nkitbu bosta grammatiki oħrajn, fosthom dik ta’ Francis Vella (1831). Ir-regoli tal-ortografija f’din il-grammatika nistgħu ngħidu li kienu bbażati fuq ir-regoli tal-kitba bit-Taljan. Fl-1839 ħareġ il-ktieb English and Maltese Reading Book for the use of Government Primary Schools. L-ortografija użata f’dan il-ktieb kienet taħlita ta’ ittri Rumani u Għarab.
Fl-1843 is-Società Filologica Maltese magħrufa wkoll bħala l-Accademia Filologica fasslet alfabett ieħor. Dan l-alfabett kellu 33 ittra u l-għan ewlieni tiegħu kien li jħaffef il-proċess tat-tagħlim tal-kitba Taljana bil-Malti. Dan l-alfabett kien ukoll iddaħħal fl-iskejjel fl-1850 mill-Kanonku Paolo Pullicino iżda ta’ min jgħid li dan l-alfabett ma kellux sisien lingwistiċi u xjentifiċi sodi. Ġara li aktar ma bdew jinħolqu alfabetti ġodda, aktar bdiet tikber il-konfużjoni ta’ kif għandu jinkiteb il-Malti u saħansitra kien hemm żmien li t-tagħlim tal-kitba Maltija fl-iskejjel tal-gvern kellu jieqaf proprju minħabba nuqqas ta’ alfabett tajjeb. Fl-1845 insibu l-grammatika tal-Kanonku Fortunato Panzavecchia: Grammatica della Lingua Maltese u fl-1882 ix-Xirka Xemija ħarġet l-alfabett fonetiku tagħha li kien fih 29 ittra. Ir-regoli tal-ortografija tax-Xirka Xemija nistgħu ngħidu li kienu tajbin u maħsubin bir-reqqa u mibnijin fuq prinċipji sodi u li servew ta’ bażi għax-xogħol li ħarġet l-Għaqda aktar tard. Insibu bosta tentattivi oħra, bħal ngħidu aħna dawk ta’ Ġanni Vassallo fl-1901. L-alfabett ta’ Vassallo kien simili għal dak tal-Accademia u għall-alfabett fonetiku mfassal minn A.E Caruana fl-190l.

Attard, Sarah School teachers’ awareness of the use of language in bilingual courses Phdthesis: B.ED (HONS) 2013 Link
Abstract: This study looks into primary school teachers’ awareness of their use of language in Maltese bilingual classrooms. It investigates deeply the issue of bilingualism and code-switching, both in the local and foreign contexts with special emphasis given to the bilingual situation in the USA, where most of the bilingual education programs were developed. It also gives a detailed account of the Maltese bilingual context with special attention to Curricula and school language policies. During the course of research eleven teachers, hailing from different school sectors, were interviewed about their thoughts on bilingualism and code-switching. They were also observed in their own classrooms. The research outcomes revealed that most school and education policies in Malta endorse a bilingual approach which is in favour of separating the two languages from each other. However, most teachers whether they agree to it or not, still make use of code-switching for various reasons which are deeply analysed in the discussion of this dissertation.

The fate of the interdental fricatives in Maltese Romano-Arabica, Vol. XIV Article 2014 Link
Abstract: It is well known that Modern Maltese no longer has interdental fricatives, which have been replaced with stops. The loss of the interdental fricatives is believed by some (e.g. Cohen 1964, 1967, Vanhoeve 1991, 1994, 2000) to have taken place in the so-called "pre-Maltese" stage, i.e. before the separation of Maltese from the Arab world. Instances of interdental fricatives in Caxaro’s Cantilena (c. 1450) or in Megiser’s wordlist (collected in 1588) have been dismissed as archaic, irrelevant or debatable (given the possibility of faulty transcriptions). The present paper re-examines the currently available textual evidence, including Thezan (c. 1640), Abela (1647) and de Soldanis (1750, 1750-1767). It is shown that varieties of Maltese appear to have preserved the interdental fricatives until the second half of the 18th century (cf. Avram 1999, 2012 and 2013, Vella 2013). Therefore, the loss of the fricative interdentals is a much more recent phenomenon than has hitherto been assumed. Also discussed are some of the implications of these findings.

Avram, Andrei A Some phonological changes in Maltese reflected in onomastics Bucharest Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. Article 2012 Link
Abstract: The present paper evaluates the onomastic evidence for some of the changes effecting consonants in the history of Maltese. The analysis is based on a rich corpus of surnames, nicknames and place-names recorded between early 15th century and late 18th century. Onomastics is shown to offer valuable insights into the gradual emergence of the system of consonantal phonemes of Modern Maltese and of some of its specific phonological rules. It is also shown that evidence from onomastics disconfirm previous claims regarding the chronology of some of the changes affecting the consonants of Maltese.

The vowel system of Xlukkajr and Naduri Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011 Link
Abstract: The paper examines the vowel systems of two Maltese dialects in contrast to that of Standard Maltese. The first dialect is Xlukkajr, the dialect used in Marsaxlokk, and the second is Naduri, the dialect used in the Gozitan village of Nadur. The vowel systems of these two dialects are different from that of Standard Maltese. The two dialects differ from each other and particularly from Standard Maltese both in their systemic organization or phoneme inventory as well as in terms of the phonetic realiyations. The paper uses the work done on these dialects to reflect on both the changing attitudes of dialect speakers in Malta and Gozo as well as on how this affects the way forward in data colletion. It also discusses listeners' adaptation to dialects other than their own.

Iconicity and the development of Maltese Sign Language Maltese Linguistics: A Snapshot ; In Memory of Joseph A. Cremona (1922 - 2003) Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: This article considers the phenomenon of iconicity in languages, particulary in sign languages. It examines iconicity within a consideration of the need for languages to have the potential to use arbitrary signs in order to continue to meet the growing needs of their users. A variety of means used to construct signs in Maltese Sign Language is examined. Maltese Sign Language is seen to be developing signs that start as mimetic and move away to becoming opaque.

Badia, Ignasi El rei malalt i l'estilet o notes sobre les relacions entre el maltès i el català Quaderns: revista de traducció, Vol. 11 Article 2004 Link
Abstract: This article describes the relationship between the Catalan and Maltese languages. After a short history of Malta the article focuses on two crucial issues for Maltese language: its Semitic and Arab origins and its current sociolinguistic situation with an intense presence of English. The current Maltese situation evokes last century European colonies in Africa more than the language of one of the new members of the European Union. Regarding the reception of Catalan literature in Malta, and Maltese literature in Catalonia it may be the case that no translation has ever been made from Catalan to Maltese, while translations into Catalan from Maltese literature are reduced to some isolated instances which could be considered anecdotic: a popular song and some poems by the Maltese poet Oliver Friggieri.

Abstract: The object of this article is to provide an introduction to the Maltese language, giving a brief overview of its history and the conditions under which it is developing at the present time. The uniqueness and interest of Maltese in the European context is obvious: it is Europe's only Semitic language, and at the same time an authentic example of a mixed language owing to deep Sicilian and Italian influence. It has never enjoyed a dominant position in its own territory despite the fact that it is spoken by virtually all the inhabitants of the Maltese islands. Subordinated first to Italian, and then to English, it is today the only European language existing under colonial conditions analogous to those pertaining in a large part of the so-called Third World. The language has co-official status in Malta and is an official language of the European Union, but its future is not, however, assured, since it has to compete with English in many domains, the real language of power and prestige in Malta, and cannot rely on the language loyalty of its speakers.

Italian loanwords in Maltese and the vocabulary of "Levant Italian" Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: Although the majority of the Italo-Romance borrowings of Maltese is undoubtedly of Sicilian origin (Vàrvaro 2004), there is a relevant number of loanwords in Maltese deriving from Literary Italian and Italian dialects other than Sicilian. Unlike Sicilianisms, most of which date from the Middle Ages, borrowings from Literary Italian and regional varieties other than Sicilian started circulating in Maltese during the Knights’ rule of the island. These words concern not only the highest levels of the language, that is to say bureaucracy, justice and science, in which case their penetration is due to the use of Italian as a written language in the schools and in the public chancelleries, but also some peculiar semantic areas, such as trade and seafaring, that are evidence for the spread of Italian as a not only written lingua franca among the merchants, sailors and slaves of several nationalities who crowded Valletta’s harbour (Brincat 2003: 203-11).

Bahagiar, Ian and Micallef, Paul Web Based Maltese Language Text to Speech Synthesiser Proceedings of WICT08 Incollection 2008 Link
Abstract: An important factor which has led to the growth of the internet is the ease of professional website development. A generic platform was required for the successful implementation of a number of applications so that they become available on the internet as easily as possible. The aim of this paper is to identify methods by which one can setup a web based interactive system on which various website applications can be developed for different tasks. Such system should lead to the development of websites which are aimed to be low cost, robust, secure, support multi-lingual content, aesthetically professional, fast to develop and easy to maintain at the same time. The flexibility of the chosen system was examined by implementing on it a handler to achieve the first web based Maltese language Text to Speech (TTS) software. The results obtained clearly show that open source content management systems offer a free platform on which high quality and secure websites can be built with limited knowledge of web development. The flexibility of such systems makes them ideal for various application developments. In this case, the first web based Maltese language TTS system was successfully implemented.

Abstract: Diese Arbeit befasst sich mit der Geschichte des Maltesischen, der aktuellen Sprachsituation in Malta und der Bedeutung des EU-Amtssprachenstatus für die maltesische Sprache. Im Rahmen einer Fragebogenumfrage wird die maltesische Diglossie untersucht und ein Meinungsbild der Bevölkerung zu verschiedenen Themen erstellt. Dazu gehören das unterschiedliche Prestige der beiden maltesischen Amtssprachen Englisch und Maltesisch, der EU-Beitritt Maltas und die Bedeutung der maltesischen Zweisprachigkeit. Des Weiteren wird der Status Quo des Maltesischen als EU-Amtssprache mittels Experteninterviews untersucht, Herausforderungen und Zukunftsaussichten werden identifiziert. Aus den ermittelten Daten kann eine positive Bilanz der maltesischen Diglossie und der Stellung des Maltesischen als EU-Amtssprache gezogen werden.

Maltese English The Electronic World Atlas of Varieties of English Incollection 2013 Link
Abstract: Maltese English ("MaltE") is a postcolonial English variety spoken on the Mediterranean island-nation of Malta by Maltese-English bilinguals. According to the 2005 census, English is spoken by 318,354 Maltese residents, or 87.9% of the population; Maltese is reported as being spoken by 97.9% of the population. MaltE is acquired as an L1 and L2, both simultaneously with Semitic Maltese and sequentially. While the majority of people acquire MaltE largely outside the home as an early L2, MaltE is also acquired at home as an L1 by a minority of speakers residing largely in the Northern Valletta Harbour region. MaltE is the main language in independent and church schools and at the University of Malta, yet there is good evidence of high-levels of codeswitching in teacher-pupil discourse (Camilleri 1995). Both languages are used in the workplace to varying degrees. MaltE exhibits deviations from British and American varieties at all levels of linguistic structure, it displays structural regularity conditioned by linguistic, social, and stylistic factors, and shows influence from Maltese and Italian.

Bonnici, Lisa Marie Variation in Maltese English: The Interplay of the Local and the Global in an Emerging Postcolonial Variety Phdthesis: Ph.D. dissertation 2010 Link
Abstract: In our current era of increased globalization, constraints on language variation in postcolonial English varieties are multifaceted. Local and global language ideologies collide and multiple sources of influence converge in present-day patterns of linguistic variation in emerging English varieties. While research into the structure and socio-historic backdrop of new English varieties is burgeoning, this work has largely ignored tools of quantitative sociolinguistic analysis. This dissertation explores the outcomes of the re-rooting of English to Malta. It considers the diverse influences on language ideologies and variation in Malta in light of diachronic and synchronic events including Malta's colonial history and the rise of English as a global linguistic commodity. To examine these issues, this dissertation analyzes local language ideologies and variation in post-vocalic (r) and the quotative system using ethnographic data and sociolinguistic interviews conducted in 2008 with bilingual, English-dominant participants from four age groups. Results for post-vocalic (r) demonstrate an apparent-time change in progress, with a move from extremely r-ful behavior to r-lessness and back to increased rhoticity. This is understood in light of dramatic shifts in access to r-ful varieties and local stigmatization of features ideologically linked to being "English-speaking," i.e., salient features of Received Pronunciation. An analysis of the quotative system reveals the presence of be "like" in speakers under 35 and a local quotative, "tell". Results demonstrate the same constraints at work in standard language varieties to be operating on "be like" in Malta. As "be like" entered Maltese English, the constraints on the existing quotative system remained intact while overall rates of "say" have decreased. This dissertation brings together theories of world Englishes and ethnographic, variationist approaches. While this approach has a longstanding tradition in sociolinguistics and has been hallmarked as necessary for exploring the processes and outcomes of globalization in sociolinguistics (Blommaert, 2003), it is still sparse in world Englishes research, and the rich internal variability in emerging English varieties is unexplored. This dissertation also expands on research into variation in bilingual communities and assesses claims concerning the "glocalization" of incoming global variants, which have been examined largely among monolingual speakers in standard language cultures.

Towards a diachrony of Maltese basic colour terms New Directions in Colour Studies Incollection 2011 Link
Abstract: Colour studies attracts an increasingly wide range of scholars from across the academic world. Contributions to the present volume offer a broad perspective on the field, ranging from studies of individual languages through papers on art, architecture and heraldry to psychological examinations of aspects of colour categorization, perception and preference. The chapters have been developed from papers and posters presented at a conference on Progress in Colour Studies (PICS08) held at the University of Glasgow. The volume both updates research reported at the earlier PICS04 conference (published by Benjamins in 2006 as Progress in Colour Studies volumes 1 and 2), and introduces new and exciting topics and developments in colour research. In order to make the articles maximally accessible to a multidisciplinary readership, each of the six sections following the initial theoretical papers begins with a short preface describing and drawing together the themes of the chapters within that section. There are seventeen colour illustrations.

Maltese phonology Phonologies of Asia and Africa Incollection 1997 Link
Abstract: The structural profile of contemporary Maltese represents the outcome od a diachronic process in which an erstwhile vernacular of spoken Arabic - brought to the Maltese Islands apparently in the late 9th century (A.D. 870[?]; cf. Rossi 1936, Wettinger 1986, Barbato 1990)- evolved during most of the present millennium in virtually complete isolation from the mainstream Arabic vernaculars. Prolonged interaction with literary and dialectal varieties of Italian, the Mediterranean Lingua Franca - in the sense of Kahane and Tietze (1958) - and English, has acted as a strong catalyst of diachronic change accentuating the formal distinctiveness of Maltese (henceforth M) from native varieties of vernacular arabic, particularly in the domains of lexicon, syntax, and phonology.

Topicalisation in Maltese Introducing Maltese linguistics : selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Buliding on earlier work (Fabri & Borg 2002), this paper establishes that a topicalised object is not in a strict grammatical relation to the rest of the sentence, and explores what other constituents can be topicalised, bringing to light the possibility of multiple topicalisation. For the first time in the study of this phenomenon in Maltese, there is an exploration ot the part intonation plays in topicalisation and it is shown that topicalised expressions (independently of their grammatical status) constitute a seperate tone group distinct from the tone group for the rest of the sentence.

Borg, Albert and Azzopardi-Alexander, Marie Maltese Book 1997
Abstract: Focusing primarily on Standard Maltese, the authors clarify many areas which, until now, remain undefined, with emphasis on syntax and intonation. English loanwords continue to find their way into Standard Maltese, especially as the Maltese inhabitants become increasingly bilingual, and the variations are studied, as well as their morphological behavior. The book describes the syntactic, morphological and phonological structure of Maltese as one integrated linguistic system composed of different strands (Arabic, Romance and English).

Object diffuseness in Maltese Objects: Towards a Theory of Grammatical Relations Incollection 1984 Link
Abstract: Like many other languages, Maltese shows some peculiarities in the behavior of its experiential verbs. While the case-marking and agreement, several behavioral properties make the experiencer argument appear more similar to subjects. Different sub-types of experiential verbs can be distinguished, and a number of individual verbs (most notably the possessive verbs ghandu/kellu 'have', well-known from the earlier literature) show further peculiarities. The various groups of verbs or individual verbs can be arranged on a continuum which shows an increasing number of subject properties of the experiencer (or possessor) argument, Thus subject properties are not distributed in a clear-cut manner, and we observe a certain amount of "subject diffuseness".

Crowd-sourcing evaluation of automatically acquired, morphologically related word groupings Proceedings of the 9th Language Resources and Evaluation Conference (LREC'14) Incollection 2014 Link
Abstract: The automatic discovery and clustering of morphologically related words is an important problem with several practical applications. This paper describes the evaluation of word clusters carried out through crowd-sourcing techniques for the Maltese language. The hybrid (Semitic-Romance) nature of Maltese morphology, together with the fact that no large-scale lexical resources are available for Maltese, make this an interesting and challenging problem.

Preparation of a free-running text corpus for Maltese concatenative speech synthesis Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: Text-to-speech systems based on concatenative speech synthesis employ the use of database of recorded utterances which are stringed together to produce speech output. The corpus of recorded speech is segmented into units of concatenation such as individual diphones, and is often read from a training text compiled to provide a high degree of coverage of these basic units.

Borland, Helen Intergenerational language transmission in an established Australian migrant community: what makes the difference? International Journal of the Sociology of Language, Vol. 2006 Article 2006
Abstract: Diasporic communities formed as a result of recent migration movements face particular issues and challenges in supporting the intergenerational transmission of their heritage language, especially when the language involved is not one that has high visibility and status in the surrounding society. This article is a case study of a mature migrant community in Melbourne, Australia — people of Maltese background — and aims to explore in some depth factors that are promoting and inhibiting intergenerational language transmission within the community. Two groups of factors are identified — facilitating factors and motivating factors — and these are discussed and related to the experiences and attitudes of the interviewees. The parents interviewed represent two vintages of migration: pre- and post-independence in Malta. Superficially, it appears that the post-independence migrants have a stronger commitment to intergenerational language transmission. However, it is argued that this only partially explains the observed differences. For both vintages, changes in the opportunities for diasporic engagement and in government policy settings in both the homeland and in Australia are creating an environment which is more facilitative of intergenerational language transmission for families motivated to support such transmission.

Borland, Helen Heritage languages and community identity building: The case of a language of lesser status International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 8 Article 2005 Link
Abstract: Diasporic communities formed as a result of recent migration movements face particular issues and challenges in supporting the intergenerational transmission of their heritage language through language maintenance and heritage language education (HLE) initiatives, especially when the language involved is not one that has high visibility and status in the surrounding society. This paper reports on a case study of ongoing action-oriented research to raise awareness and use of the heritage language within the second and third generations of such a community, Maltese-background people in Melbourne, Australia. The community is well established with the ageing first generation having primarily migrated in 1950s and 1960s. Within the community poorer than average educational outcomes for the second generation led to a programme of research and action to enhance ethnic identification and involvement with the heritage language and culture. Questionnaires, interviews and focus groups were conducted to investigate attitudes to and use of Maltese within the community. These data have formed the basis for other ongoing initiatives to strengthen heritage language maintenance and education efforts, described and evaluated below.

Bovingdon, Roderick From language to ethnolect: Maltese to Maltraljan Current Issues in Language Planning, Vol. 5 Article 2004 Link
Abstract: This paper outlines the influences that led to new ethnolect formation among an immigrant group, the Maltese, in Australia. Their sociolinguistic background and new linguistic environment brought about a divergence, particularly in terminology, from Standard Maltese, and necessitated the compilation of a glossary of the new ethnolect, Maltraljan. The newly emerged terminology has found acceptance by a government agency as a result of community-led rather than government-planned influence.

Statistical analysis of the source origin of Maltese Language and Computers. Corpus Linguistics Around the World, Vol. 56 Article 2006 Link
Abstract: This paper presents the results of the first ever large-scale statistical analysis of Maltese using the newly formed Maltilex Corpus. Traditional etymological and categorical analyses were supplemented with data mining techniques to provide accurate results with reduced effort.
Statistics about the relationship between etymology and word classes were analysed from different viewpoints. Maltese grammar and morphology remain to this day largely Arabic, but with distinct Romance and English morphological accretions. Italian lexical influence upon present day Maltese has exceeded the Arabic content in a quantitative sense, enriching Maltese from a purely root based morphology with additional productive Romance features.

Describing literary Maltese: concordances to Dun Karm and Rużar Briffa Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011
Abstract: In 2007 Oliver Friggieri published in one volume all the poems written by Dun Karm Psaili, which were previously scattered in various newspaper and rare periodicals. This provided a long-awaited opportunity to study the local variety of Italian belonging to the literary genre and I decided to start with a concordance in Dun Karm's poems.

Francesco Vella and the standadization of Maltese Maltese Linguistics: A Snapshot ; In Memory of Joseph A. Cremona (1922 - 2003) Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Inspired by Arnold Cassola's recent publication on Francesco Vella, an almost forgotten, or at least underestimated author of grammar and reading books for schools, the study will attempt to describe Francesco Vella's role in the standardisation of Maltese when the great majority of the population was illiterate, and will trace his dept to Padre Soave whose empirical pedagogical principles he followed.

Brincat, Joseph M. Maltese and other languages : A linguistic history of Malta Book 2011
Abstract: Throughout the ages, the Maltese language has undergone a series of internal changes as well as modifications and accretions caused by various external forces. Internal changes are not easy to date and explain because they require a painstaking comparative exercise that can be carried out only by experts in Semitic languages. As a result, their systematic description in a historical grammar of Maltese has not been published yet. By contrast, the external history of Maltese is essentially an account of its contact with various languages. All languages are marked by contact, albeit to varying degrees.

Il-Malti Mgħaġġel: Maltese in computer-mediated chat conversations Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011 Link
Abstract: The necessity to comunicate rapidly and efficiently when using computer chat on the internet often takes precedence over grammatical correctness and over the use of syntactic structures normally employed in written Standard Maltese. The language variety used on this medium is predominantly a written one, although in style and structure it resembles a spoken form. In this contribution we call this Il-Malti Mgħaġġel (literally, 'the hurried Maltese'). After providing a description of this variety of Maltese, based on criteria already used for other languages, we discuss results that emerged through research carried out among university students following courses in the Faculty of Education. In this part of our research we investigate future language teachers' view on the way language is being used on computer chat and we provide some insight as to wether, according to our subjects, the use of computer chat influences students' wrinting in Standard Maltese.

Camezuli, Anthony Defamatory nicknames and insult in late eighteenth-century Malta Melita Historica, Vol. Article 2002 Link
Abstract: Language reflects and shapes the society in which it is spoken, being an active force used by individuals for self-defence or for aggression, defamation and insult, and hence to change society or to prevent others from changing it. Defamation dealt not only with slander proper, but also with words spoken in a spirit of malice. Defamation is the act of damaging the reputation of another by means of false and malicious communications that expose that person to contempt, ridicule, hatred, or social ostracism. Also, defamatory libels were a means of reinforcing the impression that they expressed the judgement of the whole community. Verbal insults and defamatory nicknames were part of the everyday life, and were very important to confirm society’s basic values.

Camilleri, Antoinette Language values and identities: Code switching in secondary classrooms in Maltese Linguistics and Education, Vol. 8 Article 1996 Link
Abstract: This article looks at language practices in secondary classrooms in Malta. It shows how teachers and learners employ code switching between Maltese and English as a communicative resource in constructing knowledge across the curriculum, in interacting with monolingual English texts, and in building relationships with one another.
The article also places these bilingual discursive practices against the historical and social background of the islands. It shows how teachers attend to the symbolic values associated with Maltese and English in their classroom conversations with learners. It shows that they do so in two ways. First, Maltese is used to convey friendliness and warmth and to reduce the social distance between the teacher and the learners, although English remains the language of the textbook, and its use increases the social distance between the participants. Secondly, because exclusive use of Maltese is associated with linguistic purism in the Maltese context and exclusive use of English is associated with snobbism, code switching constitutes a means of avoiding being dubbed as either purist or snob.
Code switching by the Maltese teachers in the classroom contexts considered here needs to be seen not only as a communicative resource for accomplishing lessons but also as a means of constructing specific professional identities: using enough English to appear "educated" but, at the same time, espousing a Maltese identity.

Camilleri, Antoinette Crosslinguistic influence in a bilingual classroom: The example of Maltese and English. Edinburgh Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. 2 Article 1991 Link
Abstract: Maltese and English are used as media of instruction across the curriculum in Maltese schools. It has been observed that both languages are normally used within any one lesson and, as is here illustrated by a continuum of crosslinguistic influence, they are mixed in complex ways. As within Maltese society at large, a new variety called Mixed Maltese English has emerged and is being used as a medium of instruction. This presents language teachers and language planners with a number of problems, some of which are identified at the end of the article.

Camilleri, John J. A computational grammar and lexicon for Maltese Phdthesis: M. Sc. 2013 Link
Abstract: Maltese is the national language of Malta and an official language of the European Union. While classified as Semitic, Maltese has been heavily influenced by the Romance languages and English, and features both root-and-pattern and concatenative morphologies. Despite its active use, the language is highly under-resourced in digital terms. This thesis contributes two computational resources for Maltese: a grammar and an online full-form lexicon. The first part of this thesis deals with a computational grammar for Maltese, which is implemented using the Grammatical Framework (GF). GF is a multilingual grammar formalism based on using abstract syntax trees as language-independent semantic representations. Its Resource Grammar Library (RGL) already covers the morphology and basic syntax of some 27 languages from around the world. Maltese is the 28th addition to the RGL, and the first Semitic language in the library to be completed. The smart paradigms implemented in the morphological part of grammar allow full inflection tables to be produced for any lexical unit, often requiring only a lemmatised form. This report looks at some of the more interesting implementational details of the grammar, discussing the compromises that had to be made along the way. The second part covers the collection of various Maltese lexical resources into a single searchable collection, using a schema-less database to accommodate partial data from heterogeneous sources. We then use the smart paradigms from the morphological part of the grammar to automatically produce some 4 million inflection forms and extend the collection into a full-form computational lexicon, which can be used in for morphological lookup and spell checking. All the software and resources described in this thesis are open-source and free to use for any purpose.

Camilleri, John J. and Spagnol, Michael An online database of root-and-pattern verbs Inproceedings 2013 Link
Abstract: This work introduces an online database of root-and-pattern verbs in Maltese. Based on (Spagnol 2011)’s exhaustive enumeration of around 2000 roots and over 4000 verbs, the need arose to convert this information from spreadsheet form into a more accessible and manageable storage format. A relational database schema for Maltese roots and verbs was designed, and the contents of the spreadsheet were semi-automatically imported into the database via comma-separated value (CSV) format. A web-based interface was then built around this database, providing powerful search options for searching by root and/or verb using regular expression syntax. In addition to information on roots, classes and derived forms from the original source, fields for English gloss, transitivity information, and verb frequency were also added. This information was partially automatically imported from one of the authors’ personal notes. The rest of the data is being added manually, and we invite other interested researchers to contribute to the database. Hosted by the Maltese Language Resource Server (MRLS), this database is intended to be an open-access resource usable by other researches, students and Maltese language teachers. Apart from the web interface, its contents are also accessible via a REST web service and can additionally be downloaded locally for offline use. This work has already been used as a substantial part of the lexicon for a computational grammar of Maltese (Camilleri 2013). In conjunction with the computational morphology being developed for Maltese, we hope to expand the database to include full-form entries, covering all conjugation and suffixation possibilities. This would boost the number of word forms to roughly 4 million (and that is only counting the root-and-pattern verbs). We also plan to extend the database to cover loan verbs, as well as other lexical categories. We believe this work could serve as the basis for a complete open-access online Maltese lexicon, useful both to end-users and researchers.

On pronominal verbal enclitics in Maltese Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011
Abstract: Maltese has a separate set of [-NOM] pronouns which are marked for being either a [+/-cl]. The pronominal clitic type which exists in the language is analysed as a morphosyntactic or special clitic which participates in the formation of a lexically-shared phonological word-form with its host.

Relative constructions in Maltese CamLing 2010: Proceedings of the Sixth Cambridge Postgraduate Conference in Language Research Incollection 2010 Link
Abstract: Maltese has a number of formal types of relative constructions (RCs) related with different sorts of relational RCs, including restrictive RCs (RRCs), nonrestrictive/appositive RCs (NRRCs/ARCs), and fused/free RCs (FRCs). Among the formal differences across Maltese RCs is the type of relativisation strategy they employ, such that for example, in the Standard variety, non-RRCs are restricted to complementiser-introducing strategies, unless preposition-fronting is involved, in which case a restricted set of whpronouns is allowed. FRCs, on the other hand, are introduced by a special set of wh-pronouns which narrowly overlaps with the set of wh-pronouns used in preposition-fronted RCs. Another formal difference which exists in Maltese RCs is the nature of the in-clause function, which could be either a GAP, or a pro with a resumptive status. The description of Maltese RCs is followed by a syntactic analysis whereby for each formal type of RC, constituent- and feature-structures are constructed within a Lexical Functional Grammar approach.

Camilleri, Maris The functions and the developments of the dual form in Maltese Morphology, Vol. 25 Article 2015 Link
Abstract: This paper investigates the functions associated with the dual form in Maltese. This is established by the positing of (morpho)syntactic tests which help identify what NUM value is realized by specific dual forms within different noun categories. These tests show that while specific dual forms still realize a DU value, other dual forms have developed as PL or SG exponents. It is specifically by analysing the synchronic behaviour of the body part class of dual form-taking nouns that reconstructions of how the function of the dual form has developed are proposed. Moreover, the dual form’s realization of a specific value is also highly dependant on the paradigmatic context it occurs in. Considering the distinct dual form–function (mis)matches present within distinct paradigmatic contexts challenges binary-based overdifferentiated vs. non-overdifferentiated labels and highlights a correlation between canonicity and markedness. For the first time, Maltese dual data will be compared with data from different Arabic vernaculars.

Camilleri, Maris The stem in inflectional verbal paradigms in Maltese Phdthesis: Doctoral thesis 2014 Link
Abstract: Maltese verbal morphology has attracted the attention of many due to the co-existence of a Semitic system alongside a separate inflectional pattern reserved for its substantial stock of borrowed items. While this fact has led to split morphological analyses across the lexicon, this study provides a novel unified analysis of the system, using a surface-based approach that focuses on stemalternation patterns internal to inflectional verbal paradigms, derived out of a variety of stemindexing possibilities. It is shown how on this account all Maltese verbs can be categorised within eighteen stem pattern classes, with each class displaying additional paradigmatic stem-space organisations. These patterns also serve as a tool with which to measure the degree of morphological complexity, understood in this study as morphologically-triggered arbitrary stemalternations that correlate with non-canonical paradigmatic behaviours. It is the interwoven complex of phonological, morphophonological and morphological factors (including additional lexical idiosyncrasies), that yields the attested array of output patterns. These factors interact with the base form, which provides three important variables: (i) the verb’s phonological structure, (ii) its stem-vowel(s) and (iii) information about the verb-form’s consonants. A number of paradigmatic dependencies are also shown to exist, projecting the paradigm as a structure of interdependent networks. In most cases the collective information that results is sufficient to deduce the stem-alternation patterns. Other paradigmatic behaviours that result out of morphological-conditioning require the listing of principal parts. By eschewing analyses in terms of consonantal-roots as opposed to stems, this study allows for a unified analysis of the entire Maltese verbal lexicon, including Semitic and non-Semitic verbs, and ‘regular’ and ‘irregular’ verbs alike. On this analysis verbs are classified on the basis of the patterns of stem-alternations displayed in their paradigms, resulting in non-affixal inflectional classes, in contrast to the proposed invariant system of affixation. Analysing such alternations furnishes additional evidence for the salience of the aspectual sub-paradigmatic split in the language, and shows the intricate relation between stems and affixes. The resulting account also reveals a number of parallels between the stem-alternation patterns displayed by argument-structure changing verbs and the pattern changes observed across derivationally-related verbs. It also highlights how the majority of non-Semitic verbs display the same pattern of alternations as the historically għ-final Semitic verbs; a fact that has remained unnoticed, given the traditional morphological split that has long characterised the study and analyses of Semitic vs. non-Semitic verbs in the language.

Camilleri, Maris Stems as multiple exponents in Maltese and morphological complexity Lingue e linguaggio, Vol. 13 Article 2014 Link
Abstract: This paper is concerned with the behaviour of alternating stems within Maltese verbal paradigms. In their non-canonical alternating behaviour, multiple stems come to realize morphosyntactic and morphosemantic features. This realization is present alongside the inflectional/grammatical information realized via affixal exponents. Different stemalternation patterns are thus taken to represent distinct ways with which grammatical information can be realized through the stem, resulting in a non-affixal dimension to verbal inflection. Other data is provided to illustrate how in Maltese the stem is additionally special as it can interact with both inflectional and derivational morphology, exhibiting simultaneous multiple exponent relations. When interacting with derivational morphology, argument-structure differences are realized through the stem. In assessing this behaviour, where one finds increased interactions between the stem and the affix as these compete to realize the different morphosyntactic and morphosemantic features in the paradigmatic cell, at times resulting in multiple exponence, we explore morphology's autonomous role. Competition is proportionally increased as the number of redundant stem-alternations, attributed to morphological-stipulations, increases. This interaction consequently results in less morphomic stem-realizations and additional feature coherence.

Camilleri, Maris The Maltese relative clause: a source of Standard-dialect variation Ilsienna - Our Language: Working Papers of the International Association of Maltese Linguistics (GĦILM), Vol. 2 Article 2012 Link
Abstract: The paper will for the first time take a syntactic construction, in this case the relative clause in Maltese, and account fot the ways in which the Standard variety varies from the dialectal variety to be described here: Naxxari. In describing what we find in these systems, while there appears to be no variation across the different types of relative clauses that can be employed in both varieties, one does find variation internal to the restrictive relative clause, however. It is interesting to see that within this relational type of relative clause there is variation in all different sub-types that exist in the language. It will be shown that what variation exists across the three restrictive relative clause sub-types to be discussed here stems from the fact that the different varieties appear to employ their own distinct strict complementary distribution in the different relativisation strategies.

Camilleri, Maris Morphological complexity in Maltese nominal paradigms Language at the University of Essex (LangUE) 2011 Proceedings Inproceedings 2012 Link
Abstract: This paper discusses the interesting interactions of morphologically-complex phenomena such as syncretism, in relation to stem-patterns, overabundance, and overdifferentiation by observing the changes taking place in Maltese nominal paradigms. The paradigms are taken to be the loci from where to describe, observe, and analyse synchronic facts in the Maltese nominal paradigms. By observing the changes, potential reconstructions of diachronic processes of change are postulated, of which, it is only their final stages that can be observed in synchronic Maltese. In this paper it will be shown how canonical vs. non-canonical attributes to paradigms cannot be taken as parameters that may only render a binary classification. Rather, it is proposed that these attributes should be able to refer to the individual segments themselves. The same will be shown to be the case with the overdifferentiated/non-overdifferentiated sets of lexemes. Such lexemes cannot be solely taken to be members of one set or the other, since, as shown from the body-part set of data in Maltese, a lexeme may have split membership, and may belong in both the overdifferentiated and non-overdifferentiated class of lexemes depending on the paradigm variant involved.

Abstract: This paper is concerned with the syntax of ditransitive verbs in Arabic.We concentrate on the vernaculars, focussing in particular on three geographically spread dialects: Egyptian Cairene Arabic, the dominant vernacular in Egypt, Hijazi Arabic, spoken in Western Saudi Arabia and Maltese, a mixed language with a Magrebi/Siculo-Arabic stratum. We show that all three exhibit an alternation (the dative alternation) between a ditransitive (‘double object’) construction and a corresponding prepositional dative construction, and outline a number of differences between these constructions in the different varieties of Arabic. We consider the distribution of verbs exhibiting the dative alternation in the light of Ryding’s (2011) observations concerning Modern Standard Arabic.

Camilleri, Maris and Gauci, Phyllisienne Syncretism and its effects within Maltese nominal paradigms Folia Linguistica, Vol. 47 Article 2014 Link
Abstract: This article discusses the morphologically complex phenomenon of syncretism in its relation to stem patterns, overabundance and overdifferentiation, by describing and analyzing past and ongoing changes in Maltese nominal paradigms. Pathways of diachronic change leading to nominal paradigms in Present-day Maltese are put forward. It will be shown that the canonical/non-canonical paradigmatic classification cannot be simply reduced to a binary parameter. Rather, canonical or non-canonical behaviour can refer to the stem form, word form, affixes or other potential units in a given inflectional paradigm, separately. On such an account, the same paradigm may have different facets, and can be canonical on one parameter but non-canonical on others. A parallel claim will be made for overdifferentiated vs. non-overdifferentiated sets of lexemes. Such lexemes cannot be exclusively considered as belonging to the overdifferentiated or non-overdifferentiated set. As will be shown from the body-parts set of data in Maltese, a lexeme may have split membership, and may belong within both an overdifferentiated and a non-overdifferentiated class of lexemes depending on the inflectional paradigm employed.

The Maltese restrictive relative clause Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: The contributions included in this collection present different perspectives on various aspects of Maltese Linguistics, thereby enriching a field which has been attracting considerably greater interest in recent years than was the case in the past. The papers focus on the Maltese language itself as well as on Maltese in relation to other languages. They provide a picture of Maltese mainly from a synchronic perspective, descriptions ranging from indepth analyses of morphological and syntactic features to contributions on the lexicon, corpus linguistics and sociolinguistics. A number of papers dealing with diachronic considerations are also included. The topics dealt with in this volume show not only that Maltese is the object of research from a variety of perspectives but also that scholars with diverse backgrounds and of different nationalities are studying this language, thus providing an enriching body of knowl-edge, including findings of interest to general linguistics and various other fields in the humanities.

From "That's correct!" to "Let's explore!" Developments in the teaching of native language grammar Maltese Linguistics: A Snapshot ; In Memory of Joseph A. Cremona (1922 - 2003) Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Grammar has always been one of the most important areas in language teaching. In the relatively short period between the 1960s and the 1980s, grammar was included "implicitly" in the native language classroom (e.g. in the U.K., in the USA and in Australia), without being given perspicuous space in the syllabus. However, the discussions have often focussed on how to teach grammat rather than whether to teach it at all. In recent years, there has been a lot of clarification as to "why" grammar should have a place in a language teaching programme, and also as to "how" best to teach it. This paper outlines the developments that have led to a clearer understanding of pedagogic grammar. Both the major shift in applied linguistics that accorded grammar a new role in the classroom and the language awareness movement fall squarely within developments in education that propose learner-centred approaches. This paper examines the rationale for including grammar in the native language lesson, and illustrates haw the stated aims can best be achieved.

Camilleri Grima, Antoinette Challenging code-switching in Malta Revue française de linguistique appliquée, Vol. XVIII Article 2013 Link
Abstract: This contribution highlights certain phenomena of language contact that are particularly relevant to the fully bilingual context of Malta. It seeks to illustrate how Maltese bilingual speakers utilize each of the two languages either separately or in a mixed code on a daily basis. This is a challenging reality to the general understanding of bilingual speakers, and bilingual communities who are normally not expected to know and use each language for the same purposes. Furthermore, in the Maltese context code-switching cannot always be explained with reference to conversational cues and/or situational and other variables. Thus it provides an interesting live context of language contact. This is elucidated here with examples from different social domains, focusing particularly on language choice and code-switching in both the written and spoken modes of communication.

Camilleri Grima, Antoinette A select review of bilingualism in education in Malta International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 16 Article 2013 Link
Abstract: This article offers a review of some of the major issues of bilingualism in education in Malta. It starts by contextualising the current situation in a historical perspective. From the macro-perspective it then moves to a micro-perspective to illustrate how, in practice, Maltese and English are used as a bilingual medium of instruction across levels and subjects. It overviews some of the significant dimensions in which these two languages share roles in the teaching–learning process, and gives examples of how code choice fulfils pedagogical, discourse and management functions, paying particular attention to the variety and range of translation switches. It concludes by returning to a number of issues that fuel the continuing national debate about the medium of instruction in local education.

Caruana, Joe Construction and annotation of a Maltese corpus Misc 2001 Link
Abstract: This paper describes work in progress towards the creation of a morphosyntactically annotated computer corpus of Maltese. Hitherto, the language has not been the object of much research in either corpus-linguistics or natural language processing, and is largely bereft of the apparatus of computer-linguistic resources and tools available for work on other languages. The texts making up the existing corpus data are preponderantly drawn from written sources, the large majority being newspaper writing. A small proportion of the texts is drawn from transcribed spoken data, largely of broadcast nature. The tension between the availabilty of texts and the linguistic desiderata of "representativeness" and "balance" in corpus design is briefly discussed. The paper then proceeds to outline the choices made with regard to encoding the corpus data. The adoption of XCES/EAGLES corpus architecture and markup guidelines is briefly discussed and motivated. The adaptations that certain linguistic features of Maltese necessitate in both EAGLES and XCES standards are described, and illustrated with reference to the number system of Maltese nouns, the root and pattern morphology of Semitic Maltese, and cliticisation. The paper concludes with a prospectus of further work on the project.

Caruana, Sandro Trilingualism in Malta: Maltese, English and "Italiano Televisivo" International Journal of Multilingualism, Vol. 3 Article 2006 Link
Abstract: Malta has experienced various linguistic influences over the course of time. Maltese and English are presently the official languages of the island. Nevertheless, Italian was never completely erased from the Maltese linguistic scene and over the past years its popularity has increased considerably because of the influence of Italian television programmes. In this study the impact of input from television programmes is investigated, as well as the extent to which the "italiano televisivo" variety is acquired in Malta. Fifty-two subjects, including guided and spontaneous learners of Italian L2, provide an oral narrative account by means of which their degree of competence in Italian verbs is investigated. Results reveal that there are no statistically significant differences in the performance of the two groups of learners and that the influence of the Italian media has been far-reaching. Whilst acknowledging the fact that the degree of spontaneous acquisition via television varies between one learner and another, many Maltese learners develop refined linguistic skills after being regularly exposed to Italian L2 via television. The input from television programmes is also a useful reinforcement tool both for students who are still learning the language and for those who have completed their schooling years. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)

Cassar, Carmel Malta: Language, literacy and identity in a Mediterranean island society National Identities, Vol. 3 Article 2001 Link
Abstract: Available documentation for the early modern period indicates that the Malta harbour towns achieved literacy earlier than the countryside. The Maltese townsmen lived on a trading route, and it was necessary for them to learn the lingua franca, as the language of trade in the Mediterranean. The educated élite were able to acquire fluent speaking knowledge, as well as the ability to write, Tuscan (a dialect then in the process of becoming standard Italian), while continuing to employ their local Maltese 'dialect' on numerous occasions. By and large, the erosion of the position of Maltese as the subordinate language was an inevitable by-product of this development. The Maltese language was able to attain the function of a literary language in the nineteenth century but it had no standard orthography until 1931 and was only adopted as Malta's official language in 1964.

Cassar, Mario Vestiges of Arabic nomencalture in Maltese surnames Inproceedings 2005 Link
Abstract: This paper is divided in two sections. The first (and preliminary) part includes (a) a brief account of the Semitic strain in the Maltese language, and (b) a brief account of Arabic naming practices, particulalry the use of ism, kunyah, nisba, and laqab. The second (and main) part analyzes the etymology of several extant Maltese surnames, such as Saliba, Cassar, Abdilla, Farrugia, Micallef, Sammut, Fenech, and Zammit (all dating back to medieval times) which, in some way or another, reflect such Arabic nomenclature. It will be observed that most of these surnames also prevail in present-day Sicily, which was similarly under Arab rule.

A note on the dating of ħ, għ and x in Maltese Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: The contributions included in this collection present different perspectives on various aspects of Maltese Linguistics, thereby enriching a field which has been attracting considerably greater interest in recent years than was the case in the past. The papers focus on the Maltese language itself as well as on Maltese in relation to other languages. They provide a picture of Maltese mainly from a synchronic perspective, descriptions ranging from indepth analyses of morphological and syntactic features to contributions on the lexicon, corpus linguistics and sociolinguistics. A number of papers dealing with diachronic considerations are also included. The topics dealt with in this volume show not only that Maltese is the object of research from a variety of perspectives but also that scholars with diverse backgrounds and of different nationalities are studying this language, thus providing an enriching body of knowl-edge, including findings of interest to general linguistics and various other fields in the humanities.

Abstract: Dan l-artiklu jittratta strutturi sintattiċi fejn l-oġġett u l-pronom meħmuż li jirreferi għalih jinsabu flimkien fl-istess sentenza.

F'dan l-artiklu nipprovaw nużaw ir-riċerka fid-duplikazzjoni tal-oġġett f'dawn il-lingwi biex nistudjaw u niddeskrivu it-tipi varji ta' dawn l-istrutturi u kif jintużaw fil-Malti.

Čéplö, Slavomír, Bátora, Ján, Benkato, Adam, Milička, Jiří, Pereira, Christophe and Zemánek, Petr Mutual intelligibility of spoken Maltese, Libyan Arabic and Tunisian Arabic functionally tested: A pilot study Misc Link
Abstract: This paper presents the results of a project designed to functionally test the mutual intelligibility of spoken Maltese, Tunisian Arabic and Benghazi Libyan Arabic. We compiled an audio-based intelligibility test consisting of three components: a word test where the respondents were asked to perform a semantic classification task with 11 semantic categories; a sentence test where the task was to provide a translation of a sentence into the respondent’s native language and a text test where a short text was listened to twice and the respondents were asked to answer 8 multiple-choice questions. We collected data from 24 respondents in Malta, Tunis and Benghazi which we analyzed to determine that there exists asymmetric mutual intelligibility between the two mainstream varieties of Maghrib ī Arabic and Maltese where speakers of Tunisian and Benghazi Arabic are able to understand about 40% of what is being said to them in Maltese, whereas that ratio is about 30% for speakers of Maltese exposed to either variety of Arabic. Additionally, we found that Tunisian Arabic has the highest level of mutual intelligibility with either of the other two varieties. Combining the intelligibility scores with comparative linguistic data, we were able to sketch out the phonological variables involved in enabling and inhibiting mutual intelligibility for all three varieties of Arabic and set stage for further research into the subject.

Ciappara, Daniel Studju dwar il-lessiku tas-sajd bir-rixa Phdthesis 2014 Link
Abstract: Meta ġejt biex nagħżel it-titlu tat-teżi, ridt li jkun wieħed li jagħti kontribut lill-qasam lingwistiku, għalhekk għażilt li nagħmel glossarju li fih ikun hemm ġabra tat-terminoloġija tas-sajd bir-rixa. Għażilt li nagħmel teżi fuq hekk għaliex jien sajjied dilettant u s-sajd, speċjalment dak bir-rixa, huwa għal qalbi ħafna. Ilni nistad minn meta kelli erba’ snin u għalhekk għandi għarfien sew tas-sajd. Ħassejt li jekk nagħmel studju fuq qasam li nħobb, ir-riżultat finali kellu jkun tajjeb. Dan ix-xogħol għandu żewġ partijiet ewlenin: glossarju bi ġbir ta’ termini fuq dan il-qasam u l-intervisti li għamilt ma’ sajjieda Maltin u Għawdxin li jixhdu l-varjazzjonijiet li jeżistu fi nħawi differenti. Fil-glossarju hemm madwar 230 terminu li b’xi mod jew ieħor jintużaw f’dan il-qasam u jinsabu klassifikati b’mod alfabetiku. Dawn it-termini ġbarthom permezz tal-għarfien li għandi f’dan il-qasam, permezz ta’ kitbiet oħra li huma relatati ma’ dan il-qasam u permezz tal-intervisti li għamilt. Kull terminu mbagħad għandu ċertu informazzjoni fuqu; id-definizzjoni li jagħti Erin Serracino Inglott fil-Miklem Malti u d-definizzjoni li jagħti Joseph Aquilina fid-dizzjunarju l-kbir: Maltese-English Dictionary, d-definizzjoni li naf jew li ltqajt magħha jien kemm fl-intervisti u kemm f’kitbiet oħra u s-sors ta’ minn fejn sibt it-terminu u d-definizzjoni tiegħu. Dan il-ġbir ta’ termini jista’ jkun interessanti għal kull min iħobb is-sajd bir-rixa u għal kull min hu interessat f’dan il-qasam lingwistiku. Għażilt li nintervista sajjieda li jgħixu fi nħawi differenti biex niġbor kemm jista’ jkun termini u biex insib varjanti differenti f’dan il-qasam kif fil-fatt sibt. L-inħawi li għażilt huma Marsaxlokk, iż-Żurrieq, l-Għarb, Għawdex u x-Xewkija, Għawdex. Għażilt Marsaxlokk u ż-Żurrieq għaliex huma nħawi popolari ħafna fost is-sajjieda u għażilt l-Għarb u x-Xewkija għaliex kont naf li għandhom varjanti differenti f’dan il-qasam. L-informanti kollha kellhom madwar ħamsin u sebgħin sena u l-fattur kruċjali ta’ dan ix-xogħol huwa dak tal-ġeografija, fil-fatt fl-inħawi li dort dejjem sibt xi varjazzjonijiet. Ta’ min ukoll li jgħid li l-informanti kollha tkellmu bid-djalett tar-raħal tagħhom u mhux bl-istandard. Dan ix-xogħol huwa maqsum f’erba’ kapitli. L-ewwel kapitlu jittratta informazzjoni dwar is-sajd inġenerali, metodi differenti ta’ sajd f’Malta u anki dwar kitbiet relatati mas-sajd. Dan il-kapitlu huwa maqsum fi tliet partijiet. Fl-ewwel parti nitkellem dwar id-definizzjoni ġenerali tal-kelma ‘Sajd’ u wara nitkellem fuq is-sajd u l-bejgħ tal-ħut f’Malta. Fit-tieni parti nsemmi xi wħud mill-iktar metodi popolari tas-sajd f’Malta fosthom is-sajd bir-rixa u fit-tielet parti nsemmi xogħlijiet dwar il-ħut, l-industrija tas-sajd f’Malta u dwar metodi differenti ta’ sajd. It-tieni kapitlu huwa dwar is-soċjolingwistika u hu maqsum fi tliet partijiet. Fl-ewwel parti nitkellem dwar is-soċjolingwistika inġenerali, dwar xi fatturi li jaffettwawha bħas-sess, l-età u l-ġeografija u anki dwar is-soċjolingwiżmu f’Malta. Fit-tieni parti mbagħad nsemmi xi xogħlijiet li nkitbu fuq is-soċjolingwistika u fit-tielet parti nitkellem dwar il-metodoloġija li tintuża f’dan il-qasam. Nikkonkludi din il-parti billi niddeskrivi l-metodoliġija li użajt f’dan ix-xogħol. L-esperiment li għamilt jien jista’ jitqies bħala wieħed kwantitattiv minħabba l-fatt li jien studjajt biss individwi minn kull raħal bl-iskop li dawn jirrappreżentaw lil xi sajjieda ta’ dik l-età li jistadu bir-rixa f’dak ir-raħal partikolari. It-tielet kapitlu huwa dwar l-analiżi tal-intervisti u maqsum fi tliet partijiet ewlenin. Fl-ewwel parti nitkellem fuq l-istudju pilota u l-ħtieġa tiegħu. Fit-tieni parti nsemmi d-diffikultatijiet li ltqajt magħhom waqt it-tħejjija tal-intervisti u nanalizza l-intervisti individwalment però fl-istess ħin inqabbilhom flimkien biex b’hekk l-analiżi tkun waħda iżjed sħiħa. Fit-tielet parti mbagħad ninkludi tabella li fiha wieħed isib it-termini li użaw is-sajjied biex jiddeskrivu l-istampi li wrejthom. L-aħħar kapitlu mbagħad huwa dwar il-glossarju u hu maqsum f’żewġ partijiet. Fl-ewwel parti ngħid fil-qosor x’inhi l-ħtieġa tal-glossarju u nagħti deskrizzjoni tiegħu filwaqt li fit-tieni sezzjoni hemm il-glossarju nnifsu. Fl-aħħar ta’ dan l-istudju wieħed isib l-appendiċi li fih hemm kopja tal-intervista li hi magħmula minn 15-il mistoqsija u 23 stampa. Ma’ dan ix-xogħol ninkludi wkoll CD li fiha hemm l-intervisti li għamilt mas-sajjieda.

Maltese and the World Atlas of Language Structures Introducing Maltese linguistics: selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Given that Maltese is a Semitic language that has been heavily influenced by Romance, one might expect that is would stand typologically in between Semitic and Romance. Material from the World Atlas of Language Structures shows that this is indeed the case, although Maltese remains in general closer to Semitic (represented here by Egyptian Arabic) than to Romance (represented here by Spanish).

Syntactic-morphological discrepancies in Maltese sentence structure Problems in Syntax Incollection 1983 Link
Abstract: One area of considerable controversy in current linguistic theory and descriptive practice is the relationship between morphology and syntax, the central problem being as follows: does the morphology of a language reflect the structure of the language, i.e. is there a single function for each morphological opposition in the language, or is it possible for there to be discrepancies between form and function, such that a single morphological form would serve a variety of different functions? Transformational-generative grammar has typically emphasized discrepancies between form and function, concentrating for instance on areas where superficially similar constructions can be assigned radically different underlying representations, or where superficially quite distinct constructions can be assigned essentially the same underlying representation. Perhaps in part as a reaction against this, the doctrine ‘one form — one function’, an extreme version of the view that morphology does provide a direct insight into language structure, has become quite popular.

I am not prepared at this time to explore in full the relationship between rules of sound change and rules of generative phonology, although it is obvious that this relationship exists in Maltese, as in many languages.

Cremona, Joseph The Romance element in Maltese Transcations of the Phiological Society, Vol. 88 Article 1990
Abstract: The peripheral dialects of Arabic tend to differ from the core dialects by having an important component derived from anther languages or language group. In the case of Maltese this non-Arabic component has been alost entirely of Romance origin until comparative recently, when English began to play a part. The Romance component is frequently more closely defined by stating that it is Italian, or Sicilian, or Siculo-Italian. It is the purpose of this paper to examine this component and try and understand the role that it has played in the formation of moderbn Maltese.

Abstract: The creation of Language Resources is a labour intensive process whose difficulty is further compounded when minority languages are concerned (Cunningham, 1999). This paper discusses the creation of an extensible set of Language Resources for Maltese developed by the Maltilex Project at the University of Malta (Rosner et. al., 1999), together with quality evaluation mechanisms for minority languages.

Verb morphology of Hebrew and Maltese - towards an open source type theoretical resource grammar in GF Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'10) Incollection 2010 Link
Abstract: One of the first issues that a programmer must tackle when writing a complete computer program that processes natural language is how to design the morphological component. A typical morphological component should cover three main aspects in a given language: �1) the lexicon, i.e. how morphemes are encoded, �2) orthographic changes, and �3) morphotactic variations. This is in particular challenging when dealing with Semitic languages because of their non-concatenative morphology called root and pattern morphology. In this paper we describe the design of two morphological components for Hebrew and Maltese verbs in the context of the Grammatical Framework �GF). The components are implemented as a part of larger grammars and are currently under development. We found that although Hebrew and Maltese share some common characteristics in their morphology, it seems difficult to generalize morphosyntactic rules across Semitic verbs when the focus is towards computational linguistics motivated lexicons. We describe and compare the verb morphology of Hebrew and Maltese and motivate our implementation efforts towards a complete open source type theoretical resource grammars for Semitic languages. Future work will focus on semantic aspects of morphological processing.

The language of young people and language change in Maltese Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011
Abstract: This article is based on the idea that the language variety of young speakers can be taken as an indicator of potential change and development in the language. After a discussion of language change and of the role of young people in language development, I briefly examine specific features of the language variety of young Maltese speakers and speculate about them as potential trends in the development of the Maltese language.

Fabri, Ray Stem allomorphy in the Maltese verb Ilsienna - Our Language: Working Papers of the International Association of Maltese Linguistics (GĦILM), Vol. 1 Article 2009 Link
Abstract: After a discussion of the inflectional forms of the Maltese verb, a number of inflectional verb classes are identified, based on the CV pattern of their stems in conjugation. Class change and vocalism are briefly discussed and the variety in form is then analysed and explained on the basis of syllable structure and specific assumptions about the underlying form of lexical entries. The analysis assumes a factorisation of underlying forms for certain classes of verbs and clearly brings out the mixed structure of Maltese morphology.

Abstract: Cet article décrit le marquage de la définitude dans le NP (syntagme nominal) maltais et discute ses implications vis-à-vis de la structure du NP, ou plus précisément du DP. La définitude en maltais peut être marquée (a) sur le nom et les adjectifs épithètes qui le modifient, (b) sur le nom mis pas sur l'adjectif ou (c) non-marquée, ni sur le nom, ni sur l'adjectif. La quatrième option - marquage de la définitude sur l'adjectif et pas sur le noms - n'apparaît pas. Cet article explore les contextes où (a), (b) et (c) apparaissent, ainsi que d'autres données en rapport avec la définitude, nommément l'occurrence d'un article défini sur d'autres éléments du NP, sa non-occurrence à l'état construit et sa cooccurrence avec le démonstratif. Ces données, nous permettent de tirer des conclusions sur la structure du NP en maltais.

Maltilex: a computational lexicon for Maltese Computational Approaches to Semitic Languages: proceedings of the workshop Incollection 1998 Link
Abstract: The project described in this paper, which is still in the preliminary phase, concerns the design and implementation of a computational lexicon for Maltese, a language very much in current use but so far lacking most of the infrastructure required for NLP. One of the main characteristics of Maltese, a source of many difficulties, is that it is an amalgam of different language types (chiefly Semitic and Romance), as illustrated in the first part of the paper. The latter part of the paper describes our general approach to the problem of constructing the lexicon.

Farrell, Martin Peter Bilingual competence and students' achievement in Physics and Mathematics International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 14 Article 2011 Link
Abstract: Abstract It has long been suggested that, in a bilingual setting, the proficiencies achieved in the first (L1) and second (L2) language may have a bearing on a subject's cognitive and, consequently, academic functioning. The study is set in Malta, a country in which Maltese (L1) and English (L2) are learnt simultaneously at school from age 5. It investigates the performance of 1262 students (aged 13) in examinations of Physics and Mathematics against their respective performance in English and Maltese. The results seem to support the ‘threshold hypothesis’, first proposed by Jim Cummins, in that students who were highly proficient in both languages best performed in their respective Physics and Mathematics examinations.

Farrugia, Alex and Rosner, Michael A computational analysis of the Maltese broken plural Inproceedings 2008 Link
Abstract: The Maltese Broken Plurals have always been treated as a mechanism totally lacking in rules or structure. The traditional view has been that there is simply no relation between the singular, and broken plural forms. Tamara Schembri [1], in her B.A. thesis, argues that this view is not entirely correct and offers evidence for regularities governing transformations between the respective forms. In this paper we describe an attempt to examine the computational implications of Schembri’s work for classification of the singular nouns and generation of the corresponding plural form. The solution adopted is based on based on artificial neural networks and involves a pattern associator flanked on both sides by an encoding and decoding unit. We experimented with various encoding schemes and parameter settings and the network produces results that, after optimisation, are closely correlated with Tamara Schembri’s theory. Results indicate that, although we are still far off from creating a complete computational model for the Broken Plural, the classification of nouns in their singular form is not impossible and can be achieved with a relatively high degree of accuracy using machine learning techniques.

Farrugia, Marie Therese Moving from informal to formal mathematical language in Maltese classrooms International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 16 Article 2013 Link
Abstract: In Malta, mathematics is often taught through code-switching between Maltese and English, mainly due to the use of textbooks published in the UK. The mixing of the languages has been a source of discussion for several years, with some educators accepting the mixed pattern, and others arguing in favour of using English alone. Furthermore, the possibility of using Maltese itself as the language for mathematics has also been mentioned, for both spoken and written modes. In this article, I discuss a potentially standardised Maltese mathematics register and reflect on the choice of the classroom language in terms of the implications of the choice on the use and development of ‘mathematical language’. I illustrate various routes how one might move from informal to formal language, depending on which language/s is or are being used in the classroom. I hence invite educators to consider the language debate not only in terms of medium of instruction issues, but also in terms of the implications on the use and development of mathematical language.

Felice Pace, Joe The tortuous itinerary of the Maltese vowel ie Ilsienna - Our Language: Working Papers of the International Association of Maltese Linguistics (GĦILM), Vol. 1 Article 2009 Link
Abstract: The vowel ie was added to the Maltese alphabet in 1992, 72 years after the standardisation of the alphabet by the Għaqda tal-Kittieba tal-Malti. But its presence in the language can be traced to medieval times. The paper presents historical evidence to prove that the use of the ie has been practically uninterrupted both before and after Mikiel Anton Vassalli's call for its inclusion in the alphabet. However, the proposal by Ġanni Vassallo to have it included in the alphabet devised by the Għaqda 1921 was not accepted. The several attempts, or suggestions, to define the nature of the ie are presented and discussed, followed by a presentation of views regarding its phonological value. Finally, recent influence of English on its pronunciation is spelt out.

Fenech, Chiara Maria Bilingualism and code-switching in Malta: The North-South divide: A sociolinguistic study Phdthesis 2014 Link
Abstract: Language learning is not an individualistic activity but rather an ongoing process which is influenced by one’s background and social factors. On account of Malta’s turbulent political past and having been a colony up until 1964, the Maltese are privileged in having a rich linguistic legacy. In view of Malta’s official bilingual status in Maltese and English the Maltese tend to display distinct linguistic attitudes towards the two main languages spoken in their community. This quantitative study focuses on the phenomenon of the North-South divide and seeks to analyse whether such geographical distinction also manifests itself in linguistic attitudes. This study’s findings reveal that though attitudes towards Maltese and English vary depending on one’s locality, Maltese continues to be the language predominantly heard throughout Malta. Generally, people hailing from certain parts of the island particularly the southern harbour region are looked down upon in terms of English language competency. Residents in other areas especially Sliema and the nearby localities are perceived as using English more frequently. Contrary to what might have been expected, this survey’s findings reveal that Maltese is the language respondents feel most comfortable using when interacting with others regardless of locality, age and gender. Interestingly, only 21 out of the 120 respondents preferred to be interviewed in English. This reveals how Maltese continues to dominate notwithstanding Malta’s official bilingual status.

Language habits, domains, competence and awareness: the role and use of English in Malta English, But Not Quite: Locating Linguistic Diversity Incollection 2010 Link
Abstract: fter introducing the historical, socio-cultural and political background of the English language in Malta, the paper addresses the phenomenon of language contact following a socio-linguistic method and illustrates the results of a survey conducted in August 2007 by the author. The exploratory study reveals the complexity of the role and use of English in Malta. Language competence, habits, use, opinion and awareness are here far from simple issues. Plural and heterogeneous language contact phenomena, interwoven with unique political, social, linguistic events, have uniquely moulded the identity of a variety of English which keeps refusing pre-established definitory labels.

How specialized are specialized corpora? Behavioral evaluation of corpus representativeness for Maltese Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'10) Incollection 2010 Link
Abstract: In this paper we bring to light a novel intersection between corpus linguistics and behavioral data that can be employed as an evaluation metric for resources for low-density languages, drawing on well-established psycholinguistic factors. Using the low-density language Maltese as a test case, we highlight the challenges that face researchers developing resources for languages with sparsely available data and identify a key empirical link between corpus and psycholinguistic research as a tool to evaluate corpus resources. Specifically, we compare two robust variables identified in the psycholinguistic literature: word frequency (as measured in a corpus) and word familiarity (as measured in a rating task). We then use three statistical methods to evaluate these comparisons. This research provides a multidisciplinary approach to corpus development and evaluation, in particular for less-resourced languages that lack a wide access to diverse language data.

Galea, Maria SignWriting (SW) of Maltese Sign Language (LSM) and its development into an orthography: Linguistic considerations Phdthesis: Doctoral thesis 2014
Abstract: This study investigates the use of the Valerie Sutton SignWriting (SW) system, a nonlinear featural writing system for the writing of LSM (Maltese Sign Language). Every SW glyph represents a feature and at times a phone of sign language (SL) articulation. Hence SW may be used to write any sign language. Available LSM SW texts were analysed and a number of reading difficulties were identified. These included LSM pointing signs in the LSM SW texts which were highly ambiguous and their representation in written form caused difficulty in reading the texts. The analysis of the reading difficulties led to the linguistic study of LSM pronouns and agreement verbs and to a consideration of how SW may be used to represent the grammatical level of LSM, rather than just the phonetic level of LSM. One main conclusion of the study was that marking LSM grammatical space in written form helps to disambiguate between LSM pronouns from other pointing signs in LSM and provides a ‘key’ to readable forms of all LSM signs related to pronominal affixing. This work also offers a description of LSM whole entity classifier verbs and handle classifier verbs and their representation in written form. LSM handshape and movement graphemes are suggested where the grapheme is indicative of corresponding LSM phonemes. Recommendations for a reduction in the number of glyphs used to write LSM is included and a manual for the teaching of the SW of LSM is also proposed.

Abstract: This paper describes the development and current status of digital corpora and other NLP resources for Maltese. After an introduction which briefly examines the linguistic situation and the history of corpus development for Maltese, the paper will focus on the efforts of two teams of researchers to create a digital corpus and set of related tools for contemporary and historical Maltese. These efforts, while largely independent at the outset, are in the process of being aligned.

Gatt, Albert, Perea, Manuel, Moret-Tatay, Carmen and Fabri, Ray Are all Semitic languages immune to letter transpositions? The case of Maltese Psychonomic Bulletin and Review, Vol. 19 Article 2012 Link
Abstract: Recent research using the rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) paradigm with English sentences that included words with letter transpositions (e.g., jugde) has shown that participants can readily reproduce the correctly spelled sentences with little cost; in contrast, there is a dramatic reading cost with root-derived Hebrew words (Velan & Frost, Psychonomic Bulletin & Review 14:913–918, 2007, Cognition 118:141–156, 2011). This divergence could be due to (1) the processing of root-derived words in Semitic languages or (2) the peculiarities of the transitional probabilities in root-derived Hebrew words. Unlike Hebrew, Maltese is a Semitic language that does not omit vowel information in print and whose morphology also has a significant non-Semitic (mostly Romance) morphology. Here, we employed the same RSVP technique used by Velan and Frost (Psychonomic Bulletin & Review 14:913–918, 2007, Cognition 118:141–156, 2011), this time with Maltese (and English) sentences. The results showed that Maltese–English bilinguals were able to reproduce the Maltese words—regardless of whether they were misspelled (involving the transposition of two letters from the consonantal root) or not, with no reading cost—just as in English. The apparent divergences between the RSVP data with Hebrew versus Maltese sentences are likely due to the combination of the characteristics of the Hebrew orthographic system with the Semitic morphology.

Gatt, Daniela Establishing the concurrent validity of a vocabulary checklist for young Maltese children Folia Phoniatrica et Logopaedica, Vol. 59 Article 2007 Link
Abstract: Objective: The current literature highlights the research and clinical applications of parental report in investigating the status of language skills in young children. Since language acquisition norms for Maltese have not yet been established, this study attempts to obtain preliminary indications of developmental trends in early lexical development by adapting an established parent-completed vocabulary checklist for use with Maltese children. Patients and Methods: The concurrent validity of this bilingual adaptation was examined relative to picture naming abilities and spontaneous vocabulary use in a cross-sectional cohort of 10 children aged between 12 and 30 months who were primarily exposed to Maltese. Results: The results indicate a high and significant correlation between lexical production abilities as reported by parents completing the checklist and as measured through confrontation naming and conversational language use. Reported vocabulary measures indicate a steady increase in lexical production with age, with a sharp increment evident beyond the age of 24 months. Conclusion: These findings suggest that the preliminary version of the vocabulary checklist has potential for gauging early lexical growth and point towards the need for further research on a larger scale.

Gatt, Daniela, Grech, Helen and Dodd, Barbara Early lexical expression in children exposed to mixed input: A case of monolingual or bilingual development? International Journal of Bilingualism, Vol. Article 2015 Link
Abstract: Aims and objectives: This study documents early lexical expression in children whose language input in the home was predominantly Maltese, accompanied by regular exposure to English lexical mixing. Bilingualism and language contact were also present at the societal level. The study attempts to determine whether the children’s pattern of vocabulary growth corresponded to a monolingual or bilingual mode of development. Methodology: The expressive vocabularies of 60 children aged 1;0 to 2;6 years were measured using caregiver reports and language sampling. Data and analysis: Expressive scores representing total vocabulary, Maltese and English words as well as translation equivalents were derived from the language samples and caregiver-completed vocabulary checklists. Findings and conclusions: Both Maltese and English words were identified in the children’s expressive vocabularies. Higher translation equivalent proportions were reported across daily settings than were sampled. Participants seemed to introduce new equivalents for words previously used in one language according to the needs of the communicative context. These findings demonstrate a basic level of bilingualism in the participants and suggest selective use of equivalents in response to environmental demands. The latter would imply the presence of a double lexical system, indicating a more refined bilingual status, although insufficient contextual evidence made this a tentative proposition. Fragmented exposure to English appeared unable to support the participants’ bilingual development beyond the lexical domain. Originality: While documenting lexical development in children exposed to a distinctive language-learning context that is as yet under-researched, this study adds to the limited evidence on lexical expression in young children exposed to substantial lexical mixing in their input. Significance: These findings highlight the development of bilingual proficiency as a process that spreads across linguistic levels in accordance with input variables. They also suggest that Maltese children’s bilingual lexicons may have the potential to kick-start their sequential bilingual development once systematic exposure to integral English is introduced through schooling.

Gatt, Daniela, Grech, Helen and Dodd, Barbara Early lexical expression in typically developing Maltese children: implications for the identification of language delay Clinical Linguistics & Phonetics, Vol. 27 Article 2013 Link
Abstract: Limited word production may be the first indicator of impaired language development. The unavailability of normative data and standardized assessments for young Maltese children hinders the identification of early language delays. This study aimed to document Maltese children's expressive vocabulary growth and accompanying range of variation, to assist identification of children at risk for language impairment. The expressive vocabularies of 44 typically developing children aged 12–30 months were measured through caregiver report. Mean scores at each age point were characterized by substantial individual variation. Gender was not related to mean growth in vocabulary production. Minimum scores were compared to clinical thresholds for English-speaking children. Results emphasized the assessment- and language-specific nature of identification criteria. Nevertheless, established thresholds may be referred to when normative data for particular languages/language pairs are limited. In such contexts, the consideration of other risk markers gains importance in supplementing findings on lexical expression.

Gatt, Daniela, Letts, Carolyn and Klee, Thomas Lexical mixing in the early productive vocabularies of Maltese children: Implications for intervention Clinical linguistics & phonetics, Vol. 22 Article 2008
Abstract: Since norms for vocabulary acquisition in Maltese children do not yet exist, documentation of productive vocabulary acquisition may contribute to establishing a baseline of lexical development. Clinical implications may thus be derived. The current study is a small‐scale investigation of the proportions of Maltese and English lexemes in the vocabularies of ten normally‐developing Maltese children aged between 12 and 30 months. The participants were primarily exposed to Maltese within their immediate environments, while receiving indirect exposure to English. Outcomes of parental report and language sampling were analysed for evidence of a bilingual dimension in these children's productive vocabularies. Translation equivalents were reported on by parents, but negligible evidence of equivalents emerged in conversational language use. In contrast, lexical borrowings were both reported and sampled. A substantial proportion of English lexemes were reported by the parents in the absence of Maltese equivalents.

Gixti, Joe Growing um between cultures: Linguistic and cultural identity among Maltese youth and their ethnic counterparts in Australia Mediterranean Journal of Educational Studies, Vol. 11 Article 2006 Link
Abstract: The paper explores how young people's cultural identities are being increasingly redefined in complex linguistic and performative relation to transcultural experiences. It first considers the situation of young people of Maltese origin whose parents settled in Australia after the Second World War, and critiques the suggestion that these youths' educational performance and access to professional level employment may have been negatively affected by their alleged loss of 'mother tongue', ethnic identity and cultural heritage. The paper challenges this perception by outlining the complex ways in which young people growing up in Malta itself (the 'home' or 'mother' country) perceive, construct and perform their linguistic and cultural identities. It argues that young Maltese people's performative and linguistic constructions of their cultural identities provide a striking example of 'glocal' hybridity, and that, irrespective of whether they choose to claim Maltese or English or a combination of the two as the primary marker of their cultural identity, this hybridity is experienced as a positive performance and expression of selfhood.

Abstract: A total of 241 Maltese children aged 2;0—6;0 years, drawn randomly from the public registry of births, were assessed on a picture naming task to evaluate phone articulation, phonology and consistency of word production. Children were allowed to use the language they chose (either Maltese or English). Ninety-three children (38.6 were reported by parents to speak both Maltese and English at home, 137 (56.9 were reported to speak Maltese and 11 (4.7 only English at home. The data gained were analyzed for percent consonants and vowels correct, adult phonemes absent, developmental speech error patterns, number of English and Maltese words used, and the percentage of children using translation equivalents. The children who were reported to be only exposed to English at home were not compared statistically with other children because of the small number in that group. The data showed an increase in phonological competence over the age range and differences between children reported to be exposed to one as opposed to two languages at home. Many children, irrespective of reported home language context, used both English and Maltese during assessment. The results were interpreted as showing independent phonological systems that nevertheless interacted; a bilingual language learning context affected word naming language choice.

Grima, Antoinette Camilleri, Buttigieg, Linda and Xerri, Jessica Gozitan dialects in the classroom and language awareness for learner empowerment International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 16 Article 2012 Link
Abstract: Abstract Linguistic evidence shows that the dialects of Maltese present on the islands of Malta and Gozo are distinct from Standard Maltese (SM) on all linguistic levels. This article describes the dialectal reality in Gozo and inside Gozitan classrooms on the basis of data collected through classroom observation and interviews. The emphasis on the use of SM varies from one teacher to another, and from one school to another. However, there seems to be a common understanding that Gozitan dialects are important as symbols of identity, but that they make it harder for the pupils to learn how to write in SM. This contribution puts forward a tested recommendation for language awareness activities in the relevant classroom situations. Through language awareness, learners who are dialect speakers become empowered to adopt the appropriate variety in context. Furthermore, from the affective perspective, having their dialect legitimised enhances their self-esteem as learners.

Abstract: This article explores how young people’s cultural identities are being increasingly redefined in complex linguistic and performative relation to trans-cultural media experiences. Drawing on intervews with youg people living in Malta, it examines children’s use of and attitudes to language in a post-colonial bilingual context in order to develop a more nuanced understanding of the global-local interface informing the construction of contemporary youth identities provide a striking example of ‘glocal’ hybridity, irrespective of whether they choose to claim Maltese or English or combination of the two as the primary marker of their cultural identity.

Irregular verbs in Maltese and their counterparts in the Tunisian and Moroccan dialects Romano-Arabica, Vol. XIV Article 2014 Link
Abstract: This paper aims to analyse irregular verbs in Maltese and compares the examples to their counterparts in four Tunisian dialects, mainly the dialect of Sousse, Tunis, Judeo Tunisian Arabic, Tunisian Arabic as described by Stumme and Moroccan. Maltese as any other Arabic dialect has continued to evolve and grow further away from Classical Arabic; the close affinities Maltese shares with the Tunisian dialects are quite obvious as are the several isoglosses attested which distinguish the Maghrebi dialects as a group. It is for this reason that Maltese here is being compared to four Tunisian dialects, with the examples given from Moroccan to often serve as contrast. This paper is partly based on the questionnaire by Dominique Caubet, ‘Questionnaire du Dialectologie du Maghreb’, as well as another unpublished paper by the same author entitled: ‘Towards a dialectological atlas of Maltese; questions to be raised’ (2007), the aims of which was to draw a linguistic atlas of the Maghrebi dialects and Maltese.

Hammett, Sandra Maltese within the Maghrebi Dialectological Framework: A Study based on the Questionnaire by D. Caubet Phdthesis: Unpublished M.A. thesis 2012
Abstract: This is the dissertation that I presented to the Institute of Linguistics within the University of Malta for the conferral of a Master of Arts (Linguistics). The main aims of this research was to establish which Maghrebi dialects are mostly akin to Maltese and to discover the isoglosses shared with Maltese which distinguish these dialects as a group. Maltese was compared to five Maghrebi dialects mainly Tunis Arabic, Sousse Arabic, Tunisian Arabic (general), Judeo Tunisian Arabic, and Moroccan to serve as contrast. This dissertation was based on the Questionnaire by D. Caubet, the main aims of which were to form a dialectal atlas of the Maghreb including Maltese. From the comparative analysis I concluded that the dialects mostly akin to Maltese are the dialect of Sousse (Tunisia) and also the Judeo Arabic of Tunis. Most of the innovations found in Maltese are also attested in the mentioned dialects, including the Romance element both in the lexicon as well as in their morphophonological makeup.

Haspelmath, Martin and Caruana, Sandro Subject diffuseness in Maltese: On some subject properties of experiential verbs Folia Linguistica, Vol. 34 Article 2000 Link
Abstract: Like many other languages, Maltese shows some peculiarities in the behavior of its experiential verbs. While the case-marking and agreement properties of these verbs point to (direct or indirect) object status of the experiencer argument, several behavioral properties make the experiencer argument appear more similar to subjects. Different sub-types of experiential verbs can be distinguished, and a number of individual verbs (most notably the possessive verb ghandu/kellu 'have', well-known from the earlier literature) show further peculiarities. The various groups of verbs or individual verbs can be arranged on a continuum which shows an increasing number of subject properties of the experiencer (or possessor) argument. Thus, subject properties are not distributed in a clear-cut manner, and we observe a certain amount of "subject diffuseness".

Herndon, Marcia and McLeod, Norma The use of nicknames as evaluators of personal competence in Malta. Sociolinguistic working paper. Techreport 1972 Link
Abstract: The pragmatic use of nicknames as clarifiers separates the Maltese usage from those so common throughout the world where the nickname is used as a means of hiding identity. The familial character of most nicknames in Malta suggests they are the vestiges of a pre-Christian naming system. The major peculiarity in Malta is in the intermingling of seven naming devices in an evaluative system. The study of evaluative methods reveals a stable set of principles and fluid usage. People are mobile in the system according to their relative ability and the Maltese play with the system and express their personal feelings about others through it, regardless of the correctness of their opinions. In the case of musicians, nicknames are applied based on the musician's competence, and factions develop based on these evaluations and change over time. Personal evaluations used as insults evoke responses that have become institutionalized in the song duel, which creates various interpretations of the evaluation system. The purpose of the duelling is to create a set of situations in which speech is used indirectly in a way that allows for several possible interpretations, representative of some aspects of Maltese society.

Progressives in Maltese English: A comparison with spoken and written text types of Bristish and American English Mapping Unity and Diversity World-Wide: Corpus-Based Studies of New Englishes Incollection 2012 Link
Abstract: This volume presents a collection of in-depth cross-varietal studies on a broad spectrum of grammatical features in English varieties spoken all over the world. The contributions explore the structural unity and diversity of New Englishes and thus investigate central aspects of dialect evolution and language change. Moreover, this volume offers new insights into the question as to what constrains new dialect formation, and examines universal trends across a wide range of contact situations. The contributions in this volume further study the possibilities and limitations of quantitative and qualitative corpus analyses in comparative studies of New Englishes and exemplify novel approaches, e.g. the contribution of syntactic corpus annotation (tagging and parsing) to the description of New English structures; the use (and limitations) of web-derived data as an additional source of information; and the possibility to complement corpus data with evidence from sociolinguistic fieldwork.

Hopper, Jessica Navigating the space of language: authorized language and symbolic power in Gozo Omertaa, journal for Applied Anthropology, Vol. Article 2008 Link
Abstract: In examining the concepts of authoritative language and symbolic power we often look to one legitimate language placed at the top of a hierarchy that serves to marginalize all others, and in so doing, marginalizes its speakers. We look at subversive moments of resistance to challenge this structure, but more often than not, it would seem, this hierarchical structure of language is the one that prevails. It is important, therefore, to examine language spaces that serve as a counterpoint or a place where the hierarchy isn’t so black and white. The situational context of the dual language system of Malta provides just such juxtaposition, within which to study authoritative language, symbolic power, and strategies of condescension, as it is a place where the normal rules of language hierarchy do not apply. My research and field experience in Malta indicates that while English may be given primacy on a global level, the local reality gives legitimacy to Maltese. While strategies of condescension in the use of English abound, there are still ways to negotiate moments of power and meet in the middle.

Hume, Elizabeth Coronal consonant, front vowel parallels in Maltese Natural Language & Linguistic Theory, Vol. 14 Article 1996 Link
Abstract: This paper presents new evidence in support of the view that front vowels and coronal consonants are members of the natural class of coronal sounds. Evidence is drawn from coronal consonant/front vowel parallels in Maltese where these segments pattern together in default assignment, in vowel-to-coronal consonant assimilation, and in the more general process of coronal assimilation. The significance of the present study goes beyond the support that it offers for the coronality of front vowels; it also bears directly on the representation of consonant/vowel interaction in nonlinear phonology. Further, the evidence from consonant/vowel parallels as default segments is of particular interest in light of proposals suggesting that [coronal] is the unmarked place of articulation for consonants. In this work, it is proposed that the unmarked status of [coronal] can be extended naturally to include not only consonants but vowels as well.

Vowel duration and Maltese 'għ' Introducing Maltese linguistics: selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Historically, the Maltese phoneme inventory includet a voiced pharingeal approximant which, in modern Maltese, has been replaced by increased duration of an adjacent vowel. However, the extemd to which increased vowel duration isobserved in all context that contained the pharingeal consonant is controversial. Brame (1972) assumes all contexts yielded increased duration while Puech (1979) shows the situation to be more complex: in some contexts increased vowel duration is constantly observed while in others it is not. In this paper we record on a pilot study examining this issue. As is shown, the extent to which increased duration occurs in the context of a historical pharingeal consonant is affected by syllable type, stress and word position. It is unclear, however, whehter these findings areconsistent with the patterns for other varieties of Maltese. Consequently, in this paper we also report on a study underway that builds on these earlier results. It takes advantage of Malta's rich dialectal landscape to inventigate the realisation of vowel duration in several different Maltese dialects from phonetic, phonological and sociolinguistic perspective.

Kalmár, Ivan and Agius, Dionisius Verb-subject order and communicative dynamism in Maltese Zeitschrift für Dialektologie und Linguistik, Vol. 50 Article 1983 Link
Abstract: Im Maltesischen, wie auch in anderen modernen arabischen Dialekten, unterscheidet sich die normale Wortstellung im Satz auffallend von der des klassischen Arabisch. Im klassischen Arabisch und im konservativen literarischen Arabisch von heute ist die unmarkierte Wortstellung VS (Verb vor Subjekt). Eine Möglichkeit, die unmarkierte Wortstellung zu finden, besteht darin, die Antworten auf eine sehr neutrale Frage wie "Was ist passiert?" zu analysieren. Dafür erhalten wir im literarischen Arabisch 1. Ma: ða hadaθa ? -? ∫ tara Muham:adtextasciicircumun - kitaibtextasciicircuman was passierte? - kaufte Mohammed (nom.) Buch (Akk.) 'Was ist passiert? Mohammed hat ein Buch gekauft?' Das Subjekt, muham:ad, steht nach dem Verb? ∫ tara. Das Gegenteil gilt für das Maltesische. Die geläufigste Antwort auf "Was ist passiert?" hat das Subjekt vor dem Verb 2. ∫ dƷtara? Muham: ad ∫ tara kti:b was passierte? Mohammed kaufte ein Buch. 'Was ist passiert? Mohammed hat ein Buch gekauft. Es gibt im Maltesischen aber zahlreiche Kontexte, in denen VS-Wortstellung noch neben VS-Wortstellung möglich - bzw. in wenigen Fällen - sogar obligatorisch ist. Der vorliegende Beitrag soll einerseits eine Übersicht über die Arten von VS-Konstruktionen im Maltesischen geben, andererseits aber auch eine Erklärung für ihren Fortbestand in einer "SV-Sprache" anbieten. Unser Erklärungsansatz basiert auf dem Konzept von Bindeglied (link) und Weiterführung (advance). Wir glauben, daß in normaler fortlaufender Rede jede Äußerung ein Element enthält, das eine Verbindung zu dem bereits Gesagten oder zu als allgemein bekannt vorausgesetzten Tatsachen herstellt. Dieses Element nennen wir Bindeglied. Es etabliert eine Referenz auf Bekanntes. Das Hauptanliegen jeder Äußerung besteht jedoch darin, den bekannten Informationen etwas hinzuzufügen, anstatt sie lediglich zu wiederholen. Daher enthalten Äußerungen eine Weiterführung, nämlich die neue Information, die durch das Bindeglied in den Kontext eingefügt wird. In dem Satz John zerbrach das Fenster ist John das Bindeglied, d.h. der Satz würde normalerweise nur geäußert unter der Voraussetzung, daß die Zuhörer wissen, wer John ist. Die Weiterführung bzw. neue Information ist zerbrach das Fenster. (Die Bezeichnungen "Bindeglied" und "Weiterführung" stammen von uns, aber der Grundgedanke ist den Arbeiten von Linguisten wie J. Firbas (1971), M. A. K. Halliday (1967-1968), W. L. Chafe (1976) und anderen verpflichtet.) Folgende Hypothese soll hier verifiziert werden: Im Maltesischen ist VS-Wortstellung nur möglich unter der Bedingung, daß das Subjekt nicht gleichzeitig Bindegliedfunktion hat.

Arabic dialects and Maltese The Semitic Languages Incollection 1997 Link
Abstract: The Semitic Languages presents a unique, comprehensive survey of individual languages or language clusters from their origins in antiquity to their present-day forms.The Semitic family occupies a position of great historical and linguistic significance: the spoken and written languages of the Phoenicians, Hebrews and Arabs spread throughout Asia and northern and central Africa; the Old Semitic civilizations in turn contributed significantly to European culture; and modern Hebrew, modern literary Arabic, Amharic, and Tigrinya have become their nations' official languages.The book is divided into three parts and each chapter presents a self-contained article, written by a recognized expert in the field.* I. General Issues: providing an introduction to the grammatical traditions, subgrouping and writing systems of this language family.* II. Old Semitic Languages* III. Modern Semitic LanguagesParts II and III contain structured chapters, which enable the reader to access and compare information easily. These individual descriptions of each language or cluster include phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis and dialects.Suggestions are made for the most useful sources of further reading and the work is comprehensively indexed.

Kenner, Julia Maltese dialectology Phdthesis: dipl 2013 Link
Abstract: Maltesisch entwickelte sich aus einem arabischen Dialekt und der Aufnahme von Altsizilianisch, Italienisch und später Englisch in seine Phonologie und sein Vokabular. Maltesische Gelehrte bemerkten und versuchten früh die verschiedenen gesprochenen Varianten und die Unterteilung zwischen ländlichem und städtischem Dialekt zu unterscheiden. Die Forschung der letzten vierzig Jahre erkannte, dass die Grenzen der Standardsprache als Dach des Kommunikationssystems und Dialekt als kleinräumige Kommunikationsform aufweichen. In Form eines aufgezeichneten Monologs in Żejtunischem Dialekt werden Unterschiede zum Standardmaltesischen wie z. B. die Verdumpfung und Diphthongierung der Vokale, die pharyngalisierte Realisation der għV-Verbindungen sowie phonotaktische Anmerkungen zu Vokalen und Konsonanten hervorgehoben.

Kheder, Souad Language contact and noun borrowing in Algerian Arabic and Maltese: A comparative study Phdthesis: M.A. dissertation 2011 Link
Abstract: Due to a long history of contact with other tongues, Algerian Arabic and Maltese have massive borrowings from French and Italian respectively. In the aim of exploring the influence of linguistic contact on the types of loan adaptation in these two historically related dialects, this study analyzed a linguistic corpus of noun loans. The effect of language contact is better observed through a comparative study of the phonological and morphological change each language has undertaken. The study investigated French noun loans in Algerian Arabic, and Italian noun loans in Maltese. It specifically focused on gender, number (singular and plural) and the definite article as a means of defining the noun loans. The analysis has revealed that Maltese and Algerian Arabic both adapted the loans phonologically but also borrowed new foreign phonemes. Morphologically, they mostly preserved the noun loans genders, used the native patterns to make them plural and the article -al in the case of Algerian Arabic ,-il in the case of Maltese to make them definite. Algerian Arabic used the native patterns / a:t/, the broken plural or the collective /-ja/ plural. Maltese used the native /-jiet/ and the broken plural, however, contrary to Algerian Arabic, Maltese has also borrowed Italian plural patterns making the loan plural patterns unpredictable. The linguistic consequences of borrowing on these languages have made of Algerian Arabic a case of diffusion and of Maltese a case of diffusion and loss. Maltese has borrowed new phonemes but has lost a few native ones, notably the emphatic and velar fricative sounds, still in use in the other Arabic dialects. Algerian Arabic borrowed new phonemes but retained the native phonemes. Borrowing could not be the only factor that has ultimately rendered Maltese to be no longer considered an Arabic dialect and has made Algerian Arabic not obvious to other Arabic speakers, yet it has reinforced it. Contact with the foreign language Italian and loss of contact with the mainstream Arabic dialects was another major factor that rendered Maltese a unique Semitic variety alien even to the closest North African dialect.

Kontzi, Reinhold Sprachkontakt im Mittelmeer: gesammelte Aufsätze zum Maltesischen Book 2001
Abstract: Maltesisch ist eine Mischsprache. Sie ist das Ergebnis der Geschichte der Inselgruppe bei wechselnder Anwesenheit von verschiedenen Völkern mit ihren Sprachen. So erweist sich das Maltesische als ein ursprünglich arabischer Dialekt, der sich durch intensiven Kontakt mit dem Sizilianischen/Hochitalienischen und später dem Englischen zu einer eigenen Sprache entwickelt hat. Die hier erstmalig in einem Band versammelten Aufsätze Reinhold Kontzis zum Maltesischen beschäftigen sich u.a. mit folgenden Themen: Das Maltesische am Schnittpunkt von Abendland und Morgenland, Italienisches im Maltesischen, Maltesisch als Abstandsprache, maltesisch-maghrebinischer Sprachvergleich, methodische Probleme des Maltesischen, der Beitrag deutscher Gelehrter zur Erforschung des Maltesischen, maltesische Redensarten. Der Band ermöglicht somit einen umfassenden Einblick in verschiedene Aspekte des Maltesischen und seiner Erforschung.

Indefinites and negative concord in Maltese: towards a dynamic account Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: This paper examines the properties of indefinite pronouns and negative concord in Maltese, building on work bz Haspelmath and Caruna (1996), and offers an account of these data from the perspective of Dynamic Syntax (DS; Kempson et al. 2001, Cann et al. 2005), a grammar formalism which models real-time language comprehension in terms of the goal-directed growth of semantic trees.

Complex predicates in Maltese Introducing Maltese linguistics : selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Complex predicate formation in Maltese follows a drift in all Neo-Arabic varieties towards grammaticalizing coverbal modification in the predicate, whereby all elements, both modifying and modified verbs, remain morphologically finite. After defining coverbal modification from a morphosyntactic as well as a semantic (functional) point of view, the etymological resources for this construction in Old (Classical) Arabic are inventorized and checked against documented grammaticalized forms in several Neo-Arabic varieties, thus showing that Maltese belongs to this linguistic family (although with some particularities). Examples of the use of coverbal modification in oral varieties (exemplified by Tunisian Arabic) illustrate this difference, which remains to be explored.

Maas, Utz Mirative im Maltesischen: ein Fall von Grammati (kali) sierung? Linguistische Berichte, Vol. 2007 Article 2007 Link
Abstract: Maltese presents a particular construction that should be classified as Mirative, although this has not been noted in Arabic linguistics. In fact, other Neo-Arabic varieties, e.g. the closely related Moroccan Arabic, do not show this category. What is present in all Arabic varieties are forms of syntactic reduplication that are grammaticalized in Maltese as miratives. This is why we need to differentiate belween grammatization, i.e. giving a notional category a grammatical expression in a language, and grammaticalizafion, i.e. changing the (semantic) function of a form into a grammatical function. In the article, the uses of the Maltese mirative are explored in some detail and compared to another better known case, the Albanian (Ad-)Mirative. The fonnal resources of the Maltese mirative, the syntactic reduplication of a verbal predicate by a masdar as the reduplicand, is discussed and put in relation to its Old Arabic sources. The paper is presented as a methodological contribution, demonstrating the diffrculties of exploring a "covert category" when doing field work.

Magro, Elgar-Paul La chute de la mélodie dans les énoncés assertifs en maltais: finalité ou continuation? Actes des XXVes journées d’Etude sur la Parole, Vol. Article 2004 Link
Abstract: It is very often claimed that most languages mark finality through a fall in pitch and continuation through a rise in pitch at the end of the utterance. This article shows that in Maltese both final and non-final declarative utterances can have a falling pitch contour and yet native speakers can make a clear-cut perceptual distinction between the two. Basing his analysis on a corpus of several pairs of morphosyntactically identical utterances, the author studies the intonational features that come into play so as to distinguish between the terminal fall and the continuation fall in declaratives. He then explores briefly the relationship of the falling contour of non-final declaratives with that of vocatives, imperatives, question tags as well as wh-questions in Maltese.

Rule based lexical analysis of Maltese Proceedings of the Workshop on Computational Approaches to Semitic Languages Incollection 1998 Link
Abstract: Since no computer based dictionaries exist for Maltese, the only analysis that can be made at present is rule based. The paper describes a rule based system taking into account the mixed origins, (semitic and romance), of Maltese to categorise function and verb words. The system separates the database, the rule formalisms and the rule definitions, enabling easier analysis and quicker changes to rules when necessary.

Micallef, Paul and Psaila, Anthony Building an Automatic Speech Annotation System Proceedings of WICT08 Incollection 2008 Link
Abstract: The availability of phonetically annotated and labelled speech corpora is highly desirable from the point of view of speech research and speech technology development. Corpora that are built by the generation of manual phoneme annotation are a laborious and time-consuming task normally carried out by expert phoneticians. The adoption of automatic phoneme annotation for the Maltese language is highly desirable for the building of a Maltese Language Central Corpus database. For this purpose, two automated methods will be proposed. The first will include phoneme annotation by utilising the English- American TIMIT database, while the second will utilise a set of manually-segmented Maltese utterances tailor-made for this project. In order to do this, it is required to have a previously- annotated set of utterances up to phoneme level, and to train a set of models, one for each phoneme. For the building of phoneme models, several algorithms may be used, based on, among others, Neural Networks, Hidden Markov Models (HMMs), Wavelets and Dynamic Time Warping. The Hidden Markov Model algorithm was preferred, being the one that is most widely used, and also due to the ready availability of the HTK software suite. Initially, the system will automatically annotate simple Maltese words, but eventually it will be expanded to perform generic Maltese Speech Annotation. This paper will present the methods applied in more detail together with the results obtained.

Miller, Frederic P., Vandome, Agnes F. and McBrewster, John Maltese Language Book 2009
Abstract: Maltese is the national language of Malta, and a co-official language of the country alongside English, while also serving as an official language of the European Union, the only Semitic language so distinguished. Maltese is descended from Siculo-Arabic (the Arabic dialect that developed in Malta, Sicily and the rest of Southern Italy between the ninth and the fourteenth centuries). About half of the vocabulary is borrowed from Italian and Sicilian,[4] and English words make up to 20% of the Maltese vocabulary. It is the only Semitic language written in the Latin alphabet in its standard form.

Milton, Josephine 'Speak in English!' : the language use of student teachers teaching English in Maltese primary schools : case studies Phdthesis: Doctoral thesis 2010 Link
Abstract: The National Minimum Curriculum recommends that English lessons should be taught in English, with some code-switching if necessary for the pupils to understand. Maltese and English are the official languages of Malta and both are used in primary education. The aim of this study was to explore the actual use of Maltese and English by student teachers during English lessons. This was done through the use of case studies of three participants: Anne, Suzanne and Lisa. I was interested in how the student teachers used English and why and when they drew on Maltese during their lessons. Through the process of data collection, coding and analysis I became more aware of the possible pedagogic use of Maltese that was involved in the teaching and learning process. I came to the conclusion that both languages were being used to mediate learning and to negotiate meaning and understanding in Maltese primary school classrooms. I also realised that the choice of using Maltese or English in the classroom depended on the identity of the user, as constructed through lived experiences, knowledge about language, and beliefs about language use and teaching as well as the social, cultural, educational and linguistic context. In the classrooms I observed, Maltese was drawn on frequently to ensure understanding and learning, for procedural issues, to address classroom management issues and at times to establish a friendly atmosphere during English lessons. Thus, I came to question the 'English-only' immersion policy in view of the use of Maltese as an additional pedagogical resource in the classroom.

The shaping of Maltese troughout the centuries Introducing Maltese linguistics : selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: Throughout the centuries the Maltese morphological system has undergone restructuring with the integration of morphological processes from Romance languages and it was affected by mixture with a Semitic and Romance component. Thus a series of contact-induced changes have shaped Maltese as a "mixed type".

Monadic compositional parsing with context using maltese as a case study Proceedings of the Computer Science Annual Workshop (CSAW’04) Incollection 2004 Link
Abstract: Combinator-based parsing using functional programming provides an elegant, and compositional approach to parser design and development. By its very nature, sensitivity to context usually fails to be properly addressed in these approaches. We identify two techniques to deal with context compositionally, particularly suited for natural language parsing. As case studies, we present parsers for Maltese definite nouns and conjugated verbs of the first form.

Overlaps in Maltese Conversational and Task-Oriented Dialogues Proceedings from the 1st European Symposium on Multimodal Communication Incollection 2014 Link
Abstract: This paper deals with overlaps in spoken Maltese. Overlaps are studied in two different corpora recorded in different communicative situations. One is a multimodal corpus involving first acquaintance conversations; the other consists of Map Task dialogues. The results show that the number of overlaps is larger in the free conversations, where it varies depending on specific aspects of the interaction. They also show that overlaps in the MapTask dialogues tend to be longer, serving the function of establishing common understanding to achieve optimal task completion.

"Pseudo-verbs": an analysis of non-verbal (co-)predication in Maltese Introducing Maltese linguistics : selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: This study deals with the so-called pseudo-verbs of Maltese, a small, closed part-of-speech catergory specialized for (co-)predication but whose members are not verbs. The study first reviews evidence showing that these units do indeed form a separate part-of-speech catergory in Maltese. The study then discusses grammatical relations in Maltese in general, as the morphosyntactic characteristics of the pseudo-verbs show that the traditional notions of 'subject' and 'object' are descriptively inadequate for Maltese. Instead, I show that the notion of 'macrorole' from Role and Reference Grammar (RRG) better accounts for the data in Maltese.

Plank, Frans Domains of the dual, in Maltese and in general Rivista di Linguistica, Vol. 8 Article 1996 Link
Abstract: The dual in Maltese does not extend beyond nouns and is in fact limited to a small subset of them, comprising traditional counting and measuring units and a few familiar objects frequently counted. This is a domain which is unusual. In order to put Maltese perspectives, the possible domains of duals are surveyed across languages, in terms of the word classes of nouns and personal pronouns and their subclasses, and the typological potential of this taxonomy is explored.

Portelli, John R. Language: An important signifier of masculinity in a bilingual context Gender and Education, Vol. 18 Article 2006 Link
Abstract: This paper is based upon a case study in an all boys’ church comprehensive secondary school in Malta which explored teachers’ awareness of boys’ attitudes and interests. It uncovered a number of practices across the school’s official and ‘hidden’ curricula and at its administrative level, which, together with the student peer culture present on site, influence the construction of student masculine identities. This article argues that the decision by boys to speak one language rather than another in a bilingual context, is very much influenced by norms of masculinity. These are strengthened by the student peer group as well as by the male teachers within the institution and suggests that language is an important signifier of masculinity in a bilingual school, a masculinity which, in a post‐colonial context, is shown to be heavily linked to national pride and identity.

Prime constituents of Maltese sounds Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: The contributions included in this collection present different perspectives on various aspects of Maltese Linguistics, thereby enriching a field which has been attracting considerably greater interest in recent years than was the case in the past. The papers focus on the Maltese language itself as well as on Maltese in relation to other languages. They provide a picture of Maltese mainly from a synchronic perspective, descriptions ranging from indepth analyses of morphological and syntactic features to contributions on the lexicon, corpus linguistics and sociolinguistics. A number of papers dealing with diachronic considerations are also included. The topics dealt with in this volume show not only that Maltese is the object of research from a variety of perspectives but also that scholars with diverse backgrounds and of different nationalities are studying this language, thus providing an enriching body of knowl-edge, including findings of interest to general linguistics and various other fields in the humanities.

Syllabic structure and stress in Maltese Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011
Abstract: The first part of this paper examines all major contributions which, in the context of generative studies in Arabic linguistics, have been devoted to the syllabic structure in Maltese, Cast into the framework of rule-based phonology, of feature geometry and of metrical grid theories, these contributions have in common to consider that the 'Stress Palestinian Rule' applies to Maltese and that stress assignment is a prerequisite to vowel syncope.

Finite state analysis of prepositional phrases in Maltese Proceedings of CSAW'03 Incollection 2003 Link
Abstract: We address the general problem faced by designers of computational lexica: that of relating surface forms to underlying lexical forms through the vehicle of a precise linguistic description expressed in a suitable formalism. For such a description to be useful, it must be possible for the relation to be computable: given a surface element, we need to compute the corresponding lexical element or elements, and vice cersa. Below we concentrate upon the description of a minimal example: prepositional phrases, a reasonably well-defined and compact subset of Maltese surface phenomena that exemplifies many of the difficulties that are typical of Semitic languages.

Rosner, Michael The Future of Maltilex Inproceedings 2002
Abstract: The Maltilex project, supported by the University of Malta, has now been running for approximately 3 years. Its aim is to create a computational lexicon of Maltese to serve as the basic infrastructure for the development of a wide variety of language-enabled applications. The project is further described in Rosner et. al. (Rosner et-al 1999, Rosner et al., 1998). This paper discusses the background, achievements, and immediate future aims of the project. It concludes with a discussion of some themes to be pursued in the medium term.

Incorporating an error corpus into a spellchecker for Maltese Proceedings of the Eight International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'12) Incollection 2012 Link
Abstract: This paper discusses the ongoing development of a new Maltese spell checker, highlighting the methodologies which would best suit such a language. We thus discuss several previous attempts, highlighting what we believe to be their weakest point: a lack of attention to context. Two developments are of particular interest, both of which concern the availability of language resources relevant to spellchecking: (i) the Maltese Language Resource Server (MLRS) which now includes a representative corpus of c. 100M words extracted from diverse documents including the Maltese Legislation, press releases and extracts from Maltese web-pages and (ii) an extensive and detailed corpus of spelling errors that was collected whilst part of the MLRS texts were being prepared. We describe the structure of these resources as well as the experimental approaches focused on context that we are now in a position to adopt. We describe the framework within which a variety of different approaches to spellchecking and evaluation will be carried out, and briefly discuss the first baseline system we have implemented. We conclude the paper with a roadmap for future improvements.

Rosner, Michael and Micallef, Paul The development of language resources for Maltese Inproceedings 2000 Link
Abstract: This paper describes two aspects of the work going on to computerise resources for the Maltese language. The first part describes work on labelling and annotation of spoken Maltese to generate a database suitable for use in deriving speech and speaker recognition tools. It also describes an interactive development system SSUNN that is being used for this work. The second part describes approaches taken in the Maltilex project to the problem of discovering an exhaustive list of headwords for a computational lexicon of Maltese.

Quddiem and some remarks on grammatical aspects of Maltese prepositions Prepositions in their Syntactic, Semantic and Pragmatic Context Incollection 2002 Link
Abstract: The goal of this paper is to present several grammatival aspects of Maltese prepositions and to expose some of the main problems to be dealt with in research into the comlpicated definition of the Maltese parts of speech in general and the Maltese prepositions in particular. Though this paper concentrates on only one preposition, quddiem, the examples which are used in it help to refer to some of the essential questions about Maltese prepositions in a more general way.

Sadler, Louisa and Camilleri, Maris Ditransitive predicates and dative arguments in Maltese Lingua, Vol. 134 Article 2013 Link
Abstract: This paper is concerned with the syntactic expression of three argument (ditransitive) predicates in Maltese. We provide the first detailed description of the ditransitive constructions found in Maltese, which have been largely ignored in the substantial literature on ditransitive predicates, and show that the primary means of expression for these predicates uses a canonical dative construction. We argue that the canonical dative construction (with ditransitive predicates) is distinct from both a double object construction and a prepositional oblique construction in terms of the mapping of arguments to surface grammatical functions. We provide an analysis of Maltese ditransitives in the Lexical Mapping Theory of Lexical Functional Grammar.

Sciriha, Lydia Trilingualism in Malta: Social and educational perspectives International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 4 Article 2001
Abstract: Malta's two official languages, Maltese and English, are both vestiges of the island's former colonisers. Maltese children are taught the country's two official languages as soon as they start school. Furthermore, at secondary school level all children are required to learn, in addition to English and Maltese, at least a third and preferably a fourth language. This paper seeks to discover the reasons behind Maltese children's selection of languages. In the choice of language, persons do not simply select an instrument for mutual understanding and communication. Language is used to define worldviews and construct meanings about the speakers and the geo-political reality around them. What do the results of a large-scale linguistic survey conducted by the present author in 1999 reveal about the popularity of the languages on offer? Why is it that although the country's indigenous language, Maltese, is a variety of Arabic, few if any respondents choose to learn Arabic?

Abstract: L'A. examine la validité des modèles sociologiques décrivant la stratification sociale, pour des petites sociétés insulaires comme Malte. A la conception marxiste de division des classes, basée sur des critères économiques, elle préfère la notion weberienne de classe de statut qui s'applique mieux à la société maltaise. A partir de trois études portant a) sur l'usage de certains termes d'adresse, b) sur la distribution de deux langues officielles, maltaise et anglaise, au sein de la famille, c) sur l'usage de certaines variables phonologiques dialectales et de leurs correspondants standard, elle montre comment la langue devient un outil de stratification et comment des usages linguistiques diversifiés peuvent nous aider à procéder à des coupures dans la masse sociale

Stepanov, Arthur V. Automatic typological analysis of Semitic morphology Journal of Quantitative Linguistics, Vol. 2 Article 1995
Abstract: It is shown that the quantitative approach to morphological typology presented by Greenberg (1960) has considerable potential as a sensitive and powerful device for capturing morphological phenomena in natural languages, provided the up‐to‐date statistical techniques and effective computer support are involved. In the present paper, the method of quantitative typology is extended by introducing automatic typological analysis of a large text corpus in a language under investigation. This analysis allows for investigation of distribution functions of quantitative exponents (indices) standing for the relevant morphological features. A computer program is developed which performs automatic typological analysis of Semitic languages. Its performance is exemplified by analysis of Literary Arabic and Maltese.

It-tlieta li aħna = the three of us. Numerically quantified person reference Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014
Abstract: The contributions included in this collection present different perspectives on various aspects of Maltese Linguistics, thereby enriching a field which has been attracting considerably greater interest in recent years than was the case in the past. The papers focus on the Maltese language itself as well as on Maltese in relation to other languages. They provide a picture of Maltese mainly from a synchronic perspective, descriptions ranging from indepth analyses of morphological and syntactic features to contributions on the lexicon, corpus linguistics and sociolinguistics. A number of papers dealing with diachronic considerations are also included. The topics dealt with in this volume show not only that Maltese is the object of research from a variety of perspectives but also that scholars with diverse backgrounds and of different nationalities are studying this language, thus providing an enriching body of knowl-edge, including findings of interest to general linguistics and various other fields in the humanities.

The possesive relative clause in Maltese Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011
Abstract: This paper introduces the Maltese possessive relative clause as a morpho-syntactic strategy in its own right. On the basis of a sizable literary corpus of modern Maltese prose, it is shown that this strategy is a pervasive phenomenon within the system of possessive constructions.

Splitting the verb chain in modern literary Maltese Introducing Maltese linguistics : selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Maltese Linguistics, Bremen, 18 - 20 October, 2007 Incollection 2009 Link
Abstract: This article adresses one of the problems posed by the Maltese verb chain. Where exactly and by which elements precisely can the verb chain be interrupted? Are insertions arbitrary or do they obey certain rules? It is shown that the relatively high drgree of positional flexibility, notwithstanding, insertees display clear preferences which allow us to formulate default rules for their placement. What is more, on the basis of sizeable corpus study, insertion in demoonstratedto be motivated largely by pragmatic factors.

Abstract: Reduplicative stem-formation is a widespread phenomenon in the languages of the world which nevertheless has not been studied in sufficient detail corsslinguistically. The paper seeks to identify the patterns and idiosyncrasies of reduplicative stem-formation in two genetically and typologically unrelated languages from Europe and Oceania, viz. Maltese and Chamorro. The formal properties of reduplicative ftem-formation are discussed for each of the sample languages seperately. Similarly, semantic aspects are highlighted for each language. Similarities and dissimilarities are focussed upon. Tasks for future research are outlined in the conclusion.

Abstract: Research on new varieties of English often reflects specific lexical shifts between a standard variety of English and an outer or expanding variety of English. Studies conducted on Nigerian English, Indian English, Malaysian English, etc., list examples of morphological, syntactical, and lexical nativization without mentioning the evolutionary progression of a post colonial English (PCE). Edgar Schneider (2007) posits a Dynamic Model for plotting the timeline of any post colonial variety of English (PCE). The model reveals five fundamental evolutionary phases to any new English: foundation, exonormative stabilization, nativization, endonormative stabilization, and differentiation. At each phase, the structure of the settler strand (STL) and the indigenous strand (IDG) of English is affected at four different linguistic levels: history/politics, identity construction, sociolinguistics, and linguistic developments. In each phase, researchers of a PCE must find specific instances of development that correspond to the correct phase of evolution. In an attempt to assess the universal applicability of Schneider's (2007) Dynamic Model, this study seeks to use the country of Malta as an example of a new post colonial English residing primarily in phase three: nativization.

Abstract: In our analysis of Cushitic languages for the Handbook of African Languages, Miss Bryan and I found ourselves working on languages which could only be assessed as being on the 'fringe' of the group. We found it profitable to work out a list of typological criteria which, in our opinion, could act as a grid to seperate both Semitic on the one hand and, on the other, 'fringe' languages such as Mbugu (in Tanzania) which we regarded as insufficiently 'Cushitic' to warrant full inclusion. It has been my good fortune, during the last few weeks, to trz out out grid on two more suspected 'fringe' languages - this time 'Fringe Semitic' - namely Maltese and Nubi (in Uganda).

Tucker, Matthew Alan Building verbs in Maltese Phdthesis: Dissertation 2013 Link
Abstract: This dissertation examines the morphosyntactic implications of verb-building in the Semitic language Maltese. Theoretically, the dissertation examines the role of functional heads in defining clausal morphosyntactic properties and the interaction of syntax and morphology in the domain of cliticization. The phenomena examined herein are: (i) the major clausal constituency of Maltese and the derivation of subject agreement morphology in periphrastic complex tense constructions, (ii) morphological and periphrastic causative formation and the absence of non-finite verb forms, (iii) the argument structure of ditransitives and the syntax of cliticization, and (iv) the implications of ditransitive argument structure as it pertains to analyses of the Person Case Constraint. The dissertation shows that these phenomena support a view of syntax wherein lexical properties of heads determine agreement morphology and the structure of clausal complements and a view of morphology wherein morphological constraints can influence the output of syntactic computation.I show that a pervasive feature of Maltese is the appearance of phi&8722;features on lexical items which would be devoid of phi&8722;features in other languages. Data from floating quantification and word order in complex tense constructions are used to argue that verbs in periphrastic tense constructions receive agreement features via successive-cyclic movement of the subject through intermediate specifier positions. Data from available morphology and adverbial interpretation are presented which suggests that periphrastic causatives in Maltese em- bed a reduced clause wherein a polarity phrase may host agreement features, accounting for finite verb forms in semantically non-finite causative complements. Moreover, agreement and case are argued to be computed distinctly, given that causative subjects appear with accusative case yet still trigger subject agreement on the complement predicate. I show that while Agree can account for subject agreement in the usual way, the Maltese causative facts necessitate pairing Agree with a theory of case in which morphological case values are assigned disjunctively based on the number of nominals in a clause.I also show that Maltese non-causative ditransitives bifurcate into two distinct classes: (i) a majority class which only allows prepositional dative constructions and (ii) a minority, lexically idiosyncratic class which allows a limited double object construction involving two accusatives. I show that these facts can be accounted for by positing a VP-movement in these ditransitives which interacts with structural Case licensing to derive the appearance of a restricted double accusative case frame.Finally, I show that data from potential intervention contexts require treat- ing cliticization in Maltese as an instance of head movement of a simultaneously minimal and maximal determiner element. This view of cliticization is shown to be more appropriate than phrasal movement for the Maltese facts insofar as it correctly predicts that clitic movement should be possible despite the presence of a DP between the base generation site of the clitic and its position on the verb. This view of cliticization is also shown to have ramifications for syntactic treatments of the Person Case Constraint as dative intervention: I argue that not all datives are generated higher than accusatives, falsifying predictions made by syntactic accounts of the Person Case Constraint based on Agree. In place of these, I provide a modern morphological account which calls off cliticization in the morphology in Person Case Constraint-violating contexts.

Morphological productivity in Maltese verbs Proceedings of the third ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on Experimental Linguistics ExLing 2010 Incollection 2010 Link
Abstract: This paper describes an experiment that was designed to determine the morphological productivity of two possible verb formation strategies in Maltese: root and pattern on the one hand, and suffixation on the other. Native Maltese speakers created novel words in response to nonce stimuli. The stimuli ranged from phonotactically and prosodically acceptable, but non-existent nonce forms to those that contained segments and/or prosodic patterns typically found in English or Italian, but not native Maltese words. The results show that speakers are able to utilize both non-concatenative and concatenative strategies of word formation.

Twist, Alina Evelyn A psycholinguistic investigation of the verbal morphology of Maltese Phdthesis: Ph.D. dissertation 2006 Link
Abstract: This dissertation focuses on the unique aspects of Maltese morphology brought about by its genetic and geographic history. The experiments conducted and described here build on past research in Indo-European languages and new research in other Semitic languages to determine how different word formation systems function. Applying experimental techniques to the study of Maltese is crucial for two reasons. First, though Maltese is a Semitic language, recent extensive contact with English has greatly impacted its vocabulary and the structure of its verbs. Though the effects of persistent language contact is pervasive, clear and systematic differences may be observed between native Semitic verbs and those borrowed from English. Secondly, unlike other Semitic languages, the Maltese writing system uses the Roman alphabet. This allows for tests that require the reading of written stimuli to be performed in the same writing system as previous studies in Indo-European languages, eliminating a number of confounding factors.A masked priming experiment asked Maltese speakers to judge whether or not test items were words of their language. The test items included real and nonce verbs of both Semitic and English origin. Accuracy rates and reaction time were recorded and compared across speakers. The results of this experiment support the psychological salience of the consonantal root as a unit of lexical organization.An elicitation experiment asked native speakers of Maltese to provide a verb form that corresponded to a given noun or adjective. The test items were nouns of Semitic and English origin and non-words constructed to resemble such nouns. Responses were broadly transcribed and analyzed for their similarity to the expected patterns. The results show that speakers are able to use two morphological strategies to form new words. The factors affecting the choice between morphological systems include linguistic structure and social variables.Collectively, this pair of experiments indicate that the consonantal root is a viable morphological and psychological unit of lexical organization, supporting a search-based approach to lexical access. Furthermore, speakers are able to form new words on the basis of whole words, showing that this level of organization must also be present to facilitate lexical access.

Ussishkin, Adam, Dawson, Colin Reimer, Wedel, Andrew and Schluter, Kevin Auditory masked priming in Maltese spoken word recognition Language, Cognition and Neuroscience, Vol. ahead-of-print Article 2015 Link
Abstract: This study investigated lexical access in Maltese, an understudied Semitic language. We report here on a series of four lexical decision experiments designed to test the hypothesis that the consonantal root and the word pattern may each prime lexical access in Maltese. Priming of morphologically related forms is generally taken as evidence consistent with morphological decomposition in processing. Here, we used two speech priming techniques: auditory priming in which primes and targets were equally audible, and auditory masked priming in which primes are masked from conscious perception by volume-attenuation and compression. Our results show priming of targets by forms sharing a consonantal root, but not by forms sharing a word pattern.

Abstract: In this paper, we document the creation of a web-based lexical corpus and a set of lexical tools for the less-resourced Semitic language Maltese. The benefits and shortcomings of using the web as a source of textual information are discussed in addition to the practical steps taken to develop and evaluate the resulting resources. We believe this preliminary work sets the groundwork for further development of Semitic language resources, as well as for less-resourced languages in general, and contributes to a growing interest to apply corpus data in theoretical analysis.

La langue maltaise et le passage à l’écriture Codification des langues de France Incollection 2002 Link
Abstract: La création du code écrit pour le maltais, à l'époque de la tutelle britannique, n'a pas été, comme souvent pendant la période coloniale, l'œuvre de missionnaires, mais l'entreprise des Maltais eux-mêmes. Les raisons politiques du moment ont fait que le colonisateur s'est associé à cette démarche, dans le but de promouvoir sa propre langue et de contribuer ainsi à asseoir sa domination, et d'évincer définitivement, tant culturellement que politiquement et économiquement, l'ancienne tutelle italienne, en cette époque troublée de la montée du fascisme en Europe. Une aspiration nationaliste, doublée d'une revendication linguistique, et un expansionnisme colonisateur ont conjugué leurs efforts pour imposer un changement de statut à une langue de tradition orale et vaincre des adversaires locaux, nationalistes eux aussi, mais avant tout attachés aux privilèges que leur conférait le monopole culturel et économique de l'italien. Le maltais est un exemple où politique, économie et idéologie sont intervenus sur la langue jusque dans sa codification. Le choix même d'une graphie latine l'illustre aussi à sa manière puisque l'alphabet arabe, un temps promu, a été abandonné plus pour des raisons idéologiques et religieuses que pratiques ou scientifiques, et malgré la volonté puriste, dite sémitisante, des grammairiens qui visait à éliminer de la langue tous les éléments d'origine italienne.

Le maltais et les interférences linguistiques Language in the Mediterranean Area. Typology and Convergence. Il Progetto MEDTYP: Studio dell'area linguistica mediterranea Incollection 2000 Link
Abstract: Le mélange de langues de structures morphologiques radicalement différentes n'a pas entraîné que des adaptations à sens unique du maltais vers les autres langues ou inversement. D'emprunts de morphèmes à des accommodements de l'arabe au superstrat siculo-italien, en passant par des créations originales étrangères aux langues sources, toute la gamme du métissage s'est jouée pour résoudre les conflits structuraux nés de ces rencontres. Des compromis formels originaux se sont aussi mis en place, mêlant la morphologie des schèmes à la morphologie concaténative du sicilien et de l'italien. La masse des emprunts de vocabulaire a fait diminuer les restrictions pesant sur la structure syllabique et fragilisé la structure lexématique fondée sur le croisement d'une racine et d'un schème, mais de manière inégale dans les systèmes verbaux et nominaux. Les schèmes sont encore vivants et productifs dans la formation des pluriels nominaux, même pour les emprunts, mais ils sont au contraire moribonds comme procédé de dérivation verbale. Désormais, toute création lexicale se fait au moyen d'emprunts directs et non plus par dérivation.

Abstract: Le maltais possède trois marqueurs communs au futur et à l'injonctif qui sont le produit de la grammaticalisation d'un verbe auxiliaire et d'un syntagme interrogatif. Tous connaissent aussi un fonctionnement transcatégoriel de conjonction de subordination à valeur finale. La description de leurs propriétés syntaxiques et sémantiques montrent que, synchroniquement, c'est la notion de « visée », déjà présente dans les étymons, qui les unit, mais que les différences de portée syntaxique et les sèmes particuliers à chacun expliquent leur polysémie et les changements catégoriels. Deux chaînes de grammaticalisation différentes sont proposées en fonction de l'origine des marqueurs.

Mood in Maltese Mood systems in the languages of Europe Incollection 2010
Abstract: This paper shows that although Maltese has a set of morphological moods limited to two categories: an assertive mood, the Indicative, and an illocutionary mood, the Imperative; the two basic aspects of the Indicative mood can also bring modal values, which are in line with their semantics. The Perfective is used for the expression of epistemic values (counterfactual, evidential); the Imperfective for the expression of epistemic values (possibility eventuality, optative, hortative) and the prohibitive. In addition a set of periphrastic constructions with auxiliary verbs has been developed for the expression of (mainly) deontic values.

Vanhove, Martine On the survival of [ʕ] in a Maltese idiolect at Mtaħleb in Malta Journal of Afroasiatic Languages 3, Vol. 3 Article 1991
Abstract: This paper deals with the discovery of a sound that was supposed to have completely disappeared from the Maltese language during the 20th century: the voiced pharyngeal fricative [ʕ]. It was found in the idiolect of a speaker living in an isolated area in the Western part of the island of Malta. The articulation [ʕ] of this phoneme is less frequent than its other phonetic variants and does not even exist any more when final in the root. This idiolect brings also a new testimony of the confusion of [ʕ] and the voiced velar fricative [ɣ] to the benefit of [ʕ] that had already been descibed at the end of the 18th century by Vassalli as typical in the capital city Valletta and the cities surrounding the Ground Harbour.

Intonational variation across dialects: an intonational phonology approach Intonation theory, models and applications: Proceedings of an ESCA Workshop, September 18 - 20, Athens, Greece Incollection 1997 Link
Abstract: Working on the intonation of Maltese within the framework of intonational phonology ([12], [10]), Vella [13] notes an asymmetry in the timing implementation of the nuclear statement tune as compared with that of the nuclear question tune. Vella's preliminary conclusion regarding the former is that there is a tendency for early alignment of H* with the stressed syllable; in the latter case, the tendency is rather for late alignment of L* with the stressed syllable. This paper uses interview data to corroborate preliminary evidence relating to the timing of the peak in the nuclear statement tune in Standard Maltese. At the same time, it investigates the timing of pitch accent alignment in the nuclear statement tune in one particular dialect of Maltese. The difference in the timing implementation of the peak across the two varieties is accounted for by means of a phonological feature [early peak].

Vella, Alexandra Languages and language varieties in Malta International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, Vol. 16 Article 2013 Link
Abstract: Maltese, the national language of Malta, is, without doubt, the dominant language of most Maltese in most domains of language use in Malta. It however shares official status with English, which is also in regular use. Most Maltese can, in fact, be said to be bilingual to differing degrees. This article begins by providing some background information and a brief outline of the geographical and historical origins of Maltese. This separate ‘entity’ – one which also has its own dialects – has developed by melding elements from different sources. The internal heterogeneity of Maltese can be seen to be a reflection of the complex external situation of language use on the Islands. Official bilingualism in fact gives rise to a rich linguistic context of use within which Maltese speakers, bilingual and/or bidialectal to different degrees, operate. The notion of a continuum of use is employed as a means of explaining the complex linguistic behaviour of bilingual Maltese speakers. The effects of regular use of English alongside Maltese on the English of speakers of Maltese are also discussed briefly.

Vella, Alexandra Asking or not asking in Maltese, that is the question Inproceedings 2010 Link
Abstract: This paper provides an overview of the form and function of questions in Maltese. An attempt to determine whether information-seeking questions differ from confirmationseeking ones is made. Map Task questions coded for function as QUERY-YN and CHECK/ALIGN, as well as QUERY-WH questions , are examined. The paper aims to establish whether choice of tune in Maltese is determined by function, or whether function is subordinate to other factors such as information structure, the accentability or otherwise of specific structures etc. Accentability is found to have primacy of some sort over other factors, no categorical distinction in choice of tune being found to be associated with informationseeking type questions (QUERY-YN), as opposed to confirmation-seeking ones (CHECK/ALIGN).

Vella, Alexandra The intonational phonology of Maltese Inproceedings 2007 Link
Abstract: This paper reports on work which is currently being carried out to consolidate the phonological analysis of Maltese within the AutosegmentalMetrical framework used in other work on intonation and in previous work of the author. Consolidation of the phonological analysis of prosodic structure and intonation in Maltese is expected to go hand in hand with annotation of data from a small corpus of spoken standard Maltese using MalToBI or ToBI-style conventions adapted for use with Maltese, similar to those which have been developed for other languages. The MalToBI adaptation will serve as the basis for the annotation of data from the corpus of spoken standard Maltese currently being undertaken as part of SPAN, as well as, eventually, of other data. It is hoped that annotated data from the project will be used to establish the distribution of intonation patterns and their functions in Maltese, and that such a functional analysis will contribute to a better understanding of the workings of prosodic structure and intonation in Maltese in the broader context of prosodic typology.

Vella, Alexandra The phonetics and phonology of wh-question intonation in Maltese Proceedings of the 16th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences Inproceedings 2007 Link
Abstract: This paper reports on a preliminary analysis of wh-question intonation in Maltese. The study aims to provide evidence for a characterisation of one aspect of the intonation of wh-questions in Maltese. It focuses on the initial H tone reported to occur at the beginning of such questions in Maltese and tries to establish an empirical basis for an analysis of this H tone. Results show that a H tone target is indeed always present on the wh-word in Maltese wh-questions. Moreover, the H target seems to be associated with the first syllable of the wh-word, whether this syllable is accented or not. Furthermore, the H tone in question is characterised by a raising in F0 as compared to other H tone targets across a range of different sentence types.

Integrating annotated spoken Maltese data into corpora of written Maltese Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'10) Incollection 2010 Link
Abstract: Spoken data features to a lesser extent in corpora available for languages than do written data. This paper addresses this issue by presenting work carried out to date on the development of a corpus of spoken Maltese. It outlines the standards for the PRAAT annotation of Maltese data at the orthographic level, and reports on preliminary work on the annotation of Maltese prosody and development of ToBI-style standards for Maltese. Procedures being developed for exporting PRAAT TextGrid information for the purposes of incorporation into a predominantly written corpus of Maltese are then discussed. The paper also demonstrates how characteristics of speech notoriously difficult to deal with have been tackled and how the exported output from the PRAAT annotations can be enhanced through the representation also of phenomena, sometimes referred to as "normal disfluencies", which include "filled pauses" and other vocalisations of a quasi-lexical nature having various functions of a discourse-management type such as "backchannelling".

Vella, Alexandra and Farrugia, Paulseph-John MalToBI–building an annotated corpus of spoken Maltese Proceedings of Speech Prosody 2006 Incollection 2006 Link
Abstract: Research on the phonetics and phonology of Maltese, and in particular on different aspects of its prosody, is, thus far, rather limited. This is in part due to the lack of structured resources for use in research. One resource which, to date, has been unavailable, is a corpus of spoken Maltese. Such a corpus, could, amongst other things, be used as a ready resource for the analysis of various aspects of the phonetics and phonology of Maltese. Moreover, given the limited research in the area of Maltese prosody, a speech corpus including an element of prosodic annotation could be particularly important for the continuing development of resources in the domain of Text-toSpeech (TTS) in the local context. Recognition of the requirement of such a corpus gave rise to MalToBI, a project involving the collection of a relatively small body of spoken Maltese, together with the development of a Tone and Break Indices (ToBI) framework adapted for use with Maltese. This paper gives a brief outline of some aspects of the prosody of Maltese and describes the development of this corpus. It discusses design considerations in some detail, and it outlines the progress made so far as well as the intentions for future work.

Overlaps in Maltese: a comparison between map task dialogues and multimodal conversational data NEALT Proceedings Series, Vol. 21 (Proceedings of the 4th Nordic Symposium on Multimodal Communication) Article 2012 Link
Abstract: This paper deals with overlaps in spoken Maltese. Overlaps are studied in samples from two different corpora, one consisting of Map Task dialogues, and the other of free face-to-face conversations. The results show that the number and function of the overlaps vary with the presence or absence of pre-defined roles, the nature of the dialogue and the subjects’ familiarity with the situation. Overlaps are used to achieve optimal information exchange in the Map Task dialogues, and are a sign of ease and familiarity in the free conversations.

The role of silence in spoken Maltese: durational and distributional characteristics of breaks and pauses Perspectives on Maltese linguistics Incollection 2014 Link
Abstract: The contributions included in this collection present different perspectives on various aspects of Maltese Linguistics, thereby enriching a field which has been attracting considerably greater interest in recent years than was the case in the past. The papers focus on the Maltese language itself as well as on Maltese in relation to other languages. They provide a picture of Maltese mainly from a synchronic perspective, descriptions ranging from indepth analyses of morphological and syntactic features to contributions on the lexicon, corpus linguistics and sociolinguistics. A number of papers dealing with diachronic considerations are also included. The topics dealt with in this volume show not only that Maltese is the object of research from a variety of perspectives but also that scholars with diverse backgrounds and of different nationalities are studying this language, thus providing an enriching body of knowl-edge, including findings of interest to general linguistics and various other fields in the humanities.

A preliminary investigation of filled pauses in Maltese Variation and Change: The Dynamics of Maltese in Space, Time and Society Incollection 2011
Abstract: Spontaneous speech, unlike read speech, is replete with filled pauses (FP's) and other disfluencies. Evidence exists that FP's have their own specific phonetic, including prosodic, characteristics, as well as an important discourse function. This paper reports preliminary results on Maltese FP's based on analysis of a corpus of Maltese Map Task dialogues.
