The Sociolinguistic Status of English in Malta.
Camilleri, Antoinette
Edinburgh Working Papers in Linguistics, n3 p14-24 1992
This paper provides a sociolinguistic description of English language use in Malta at present in terms of who speaks what language, where and when. Some observations on English language contact with Maltese are made. Finally a brief discussion is taken up as to whether and to what extent it would be appropriate to consider Maltese English as a new institutionalized variety of English. (Contains 22 references.)
