Summer School in Maltese Linguistics

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

The Summer School is aimed mainly at those interested in the linguistics of
Maltese rather than at those interested in learning Maltese although
sessions in the Maltese Language for Foreigners will be held if enough
interest is expressed. Specialists in different aspects of Maltese
linguistics will lecture on the following areas within more general topics
such as:
- The Sound System of Maltese (e.g. the phonemic inventory and allophonic
variation, Maltese phonotactics, syllable structure, stress, intonation);
- The Maltese Lexicon (e.g. the provenance of Maltese words, word-formation
- The Grammar and Semantics of Maltese (tense and aspect, topicalisation,
subordination, word order, referring expressions);
- Maltese in Context (e.g. the historical development of Maltese, language
use in the Maltese context, the Maltese media, language planning in the
Maltese context, Maltese in the context of the EU, computational resources
for Maltese, Maltese Sign Language).

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


The Summer School will consist of two parts:
1. the Linguistics of Maltese part; and
2. the Maltese Language for Foreigners option at -
a) beginner;
b) intermediate, level.

Please email programmesfis.com.mt, preferably by September 15, 2008, to
indicate whether you expect to participate in the first Summer School in
Maltese Linguistics, announced above, to be held in Malta from June 15 to
26 2009, showing clearly which part/s of the Summer School you are
interested in.
