Abstract: Dr Adrian Grima talks with Prof Joseph M. Brincat on linguistics in Juann Mamo's writings. Prof Brincat teaches at the University of Malta and his areas of interest are: the history of linguistics; the linguistic history of Malta; the variety of Italian used in Malta; the use of Italian by the Order of the Knights of St. John in Malta; contacts between Italian and English; the dubbing of English-language films and teleserials into Italian; Italian philology (esp. Medieval); and textual criticism; the role of TV in language acquisition; onomastics.
Description: A series of programmes focusing on the human and literary adventure of Juann Mamo. Author and cultural activist, Juann Mamo was born in 1886, and died relatively young and in mysterious circumstances in 1941. The programmes explore, among other things, his relations with British colonialism, Manuel Dimech and the Left; Maltese emigration in the beginning of the 20th century and how it affected those that left and those that stayed behind; the life that he wanted to live and his frequently controversial writings in the newspapers.
