Abstract: It is said that Maltese is a mixed language. It is also said that it is an Arabic dialect. Others say that pure Maltese does not exist. What then is the Maltese? To enter the discussion, the author shows two Maltese translations of the same Arabic text. The author of the original is the Lebanese poet Īlyā Abū Māḍī (1889-1957). The poem is of philosophical content (existentialist). The author will also take a look at the original Arabic text and then compare the original with the two translations to get a first impression of the differences and coincidences between these two languages.
