Abstract: In 2007 Oliver Friggieri published in one volume all the poems written by Dun Karm Psaila, which were previously scattered in various newspapers and rare periodicals. This provided a long-awaited opportunity to study the local variety of Italian belonging to the literary genre and I decided to start with a concordance to Dun Kann's poems. I then thought it worthwhile to compare his lexicon with that of his Maltese poems. Another step was a comparison between Dun Karm's lexical choices and those of another highly-rated Maltese poet, Ruzar Briffa. In this paper I present and compare the results obtained by three students, Catherine Aquilina, Olivia De Brincat and Christian Sciberras who wrote dissertations under my guidance.
L-ewzzjoni tal-poeziji li Dun Karm Psaila kiteb bit-Taljan offriet, fl-2007, opportunitl wisq mistennija biex jigi studjat it-Taljan ta' Malta fil-varjeta letterarja tiegnu u bdejt bi progett biex jinbnew ilkonkordanzi, lista tal-kliem kollu ui:at fdawn il-poeziji.
