The worldliness of Maltese

Ranier Fsadni / Times of Malta
...Joseph M. Brincat’s book, Maltese and Other Languages (Midsea). A thick book, subtitled A Linguistic History of Malta, summarising reams of linguistic studies, it might seem rather more ivory-towered than worldly. In fact, the book returns Maltese to its world – its real world, as against the mythical, disabling images that have been thought up for it over the ages.
