3. LINGUISTIC TYPOLOGY - Where does Maltese belong?

I know it's a bit short notice, but any of you language freaks currently in Malta, please go.
Great things are afoot for the Maltese language, the chief among them is the founding of the aforementioned "Għaqda Internazzjonali tal-Lingwistika Maltija" (International Society for Maltese Linguistics), which will (so the cover letter by prof. Manwel Mifsud) take place in a few months in Bremen and which will be brought about by valiant efforts of prof. Stolz.
So please go and take notes. Especially at the first talk, the subject of which sounds very much like the title of my dissertation proposal.
