Abstract:

This collection of articles highlights a selection of on-going research
projects. Phonological, morphological, and syntactic issues are addressed
by international experts on Maltese. The diachronic development of Maltese,
its age-long contact with Italo-Romance, and the present diglossic
situation with co-official English are the topics of a variety of
contributions to this volume. The repercussions that the promotion of
Maltese to the status of official working language of the EU has on the
Maltese lexicon are discussed. A project on the sociolinguistics of
non-native Maltese-English is presented. The problems posed by the creation
of electronic resources for Maltese are equally focused upon. The papers
amply demonstrate that Maltese Linguistics can stand on its own outside the
traditional field of Oriental Studies.
