Abstract: The earliest recorded examples of Maltese are those included by Megiser in his description of Malta of 1611. Megiser published some of the forms he recorded there in his Thesaurus Polyglottus of 1603. Megiser's list consists of 121 items recorded in transcription, each followed by a German floss. Most are single words, but some consist of short phrases. In the interest of providing scholars interested in Maltese with the material, and in the hope that it will further the study of the historical phonology of Maltese, William Cowan presents in this article the list of forms, along with Megiser's introduction.
