Description - Maltese by Marie Azzopardi-Alexander

Maltese , the national language of the Island of Malta, is spoken by almost 400,000 people. This book focuses on Standard Maltese and serves to clarify many areas which, until now remain undefined, specifically in the areas of syntax and intonation. English loanwords continue to find their way into Standard Maltese, especially as Maltese inhabitants become increasingly bilingual, and their variations are studied, as well as their morphological behaviour. Complying with the Descriptive Grammars series profile, Albert Borg provides a meticulous linguistical analysis of Maltese which will be appreciated by all linguists, for the purposes of both cross-language comparisons and the study of specific linguistic, such as language universals, language typology, comparative syntax, morphology and phonology. Professor Borg is currently Chairman at the Institute of Linguistics at the University of Malta.
