Abstract: The Maltese language is the only national language in Europe of Semitic origin. It was formed during the Arab occupation of the island (870-1091 AD), even though recently discovered sources state that the island was completely abandoned by the Arabs until 1049 (Brincat 1995). If these sources were to be confirmed, tha t would mean tha t the genesis of the Maltese language could be backdated to the year 1049 AD.
