Dear Linguists,

We are very proud to announce the creation of the Malta Centre at the University of Bremen. The centre serves as an information hub for linguists interested in the Maltese language and strives to create online resources for facilitating the study of Maltese.

As a cooperation between the University of Malta and the University of Bremen, the centre aims to establish Maltese Linguistics as a discipline in its own right on an international level. Another short term goal is to integrate the study of Maltese into the regular curriculum of General Linguistics at the University of Bremen as a compulsory subject.

As a first online resource the Malta Centre has started to compile the Bibliography of Maltese Linguistics (currently over 700 titles) which tries to collect all linguistic publications on the Maltese language. The current version of the bibliogrpahy is fully seachable online. Other projects are the Typological Database of Maltese and a student project on dialectal variation in Malta.

If you want to know more about the Malta Centre or the Maltese language, please visit our website: http://www.fb10.uni-bremen.de/maltacentre/ or contact us at ghaqdauni-bremen.de
