Maltese: A unique blend of Arabic and Italian

Maltese is spoken in the small, insular island nation of Malta, located off the coast of Sicily, Italy, in the Mediterranean Sea. The number of speakers clocks in at around 520,000, roughly the population of the country. Maltese is a remarkably unique language: it’s officially classified as a Semitic language, like Arabic and Hebrew, but the bulk of its vocabulary—more than 50%—comes from Romance languages, namely Italian and Sicilian. Another 30% or so comes from Siculo-Arabic, an extinct dialect of Arabic historically spoken in Sicily. Maltese is the only standardized Semitic language that is written solely in the Latin alphabet.

As a Semitic language, Maltese grammar and structure is largely derived from Arabic. In particular, Maltese features the quintessential Semitic characteristic of trilateral consonant roots, where verbs and nouns are comprised primarily of three consonants, which are modified with different sequences of verbs to indicate grammatical information such as tense or person. This method is also used to cross word categories, such as creating adjectives from nouns. Maltese uses Arabic-derived prefixes and suffixes with Romance verbs but not the trilateral root system. Similarly, making plural nouns can be tricky, since the approach differs depending on whether the noun comes from Arabic, Italian, or English.
