Example text

G. wicchom 'their face' 0 1 . 1 -3 . g. missieru 'his father' 0 1 . 5 . g. pajjiina 'our country' 0 8 . 35 : 1 ; j1 triqtu 'on his way' o 1 . 5 . 1 7 :2. In this respect again, journalistic Maltese reflects the spoken language. Siculo-Italian loan nouns may occasionally take a pronominal suffix in some of the above cases. More often than not, however, they take the possessive pronoun intead, as in id-delegazzjoni tieghu 'his delegation' 0 1 . 1 . 1 5- 1 6 : I , and not *delegazzjonitu although this form is morphologically correct.

G. u 'and', meta 'when', jew 'or', 60 MORPHOLOGY jekk 'if, gnaliex and gnax 'because', bhalma 'as'. Such Semitic conjunctions are common at all levels of Maltese. g. mentri 'while', galadarba (It. gia 'since' + Semitic Maltese la 'since' + darba 'once' ; this is replaced in literary Maltese by la or ladarba or bi/Ii) 'since', sija . . sija 'both . . and'. These conjunctions are rare in the literary language, but quite common in the newspapers, as well as in spoken Maltese. The following examples illustrate their use in the press.

These are generally either nouns of unity, as in the case of serqa 'burglary' from the verb seraq 'to steal', or nouns denoting state or action, as in serq 'stealing' from the same verb seraq as above. Such reconstructions occur in both the literary and the journalistic language. g. 55 : 1 6. g. mument 'moment', motto 'motto', Marzu 'March', kaje 'coffee', suffle 'sponge-cake'. g. in vaijoni 'invasion', serje 'series', munita (cp. Italian moneta) 'coin'. Exceptions to these rules exist in both the literary and the journalistic language, but on the whole, the rules, as formulated here, are better observed in the newspapers.
