Abstract: Most of the sixteen papers published in this book were originally communications delivered at international congresses. I have made corrections where necessary, revised them in parts and excised several paragraphs of a repetitive nature which were included in the original texts as introductory background information. This book may be considered as a sequel to my Papers In Maltese Linguistics (1961). I have given the transliteration of every Arabic word wherever the vocalisation was recorded together with the Arabic script to enable students of the language who do not know Arabic to follow the text as fully as possible. Publishing a book of this nature is by no means easy because of complications of printing, especially in the use of Arabic script and transliteration. I am deeply grateful to Albert Borg, Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Maltese and Emanuel Mifsud, Research Assistant in the same Department, for the help they gave me in preparing the text for the press. It was originally intended to print this book at the Printing Press of the University of Malta which produced both the Arabic script and the transliteration used by the printers of this book. I thank the University authorities and the Editorial Board for the financial assistance that has made the printing of this book possible.
