- Jul 4, 2005Alborgian was a project I was working on about 10 to five years ago.
I used a number of books for the info on Arabic dialects:
-<Actes des premières journées internationales de dialectologie arabe de
Paris> - INALCO 1994; especially the article <Vocalisme comparé des
parlers judéo-marocains> by Simon Lévy, and <Formes et structures du
mixage linguistique dans les langues secrètes juives du Maroc> by Joseph
-<Le parler Arabe des Juifs de Tunis> by David Cohen
-<Handbuch der arabischen Dialekte> by Fischer & Jastrow
-<Esquisse grammaticale de l'Arabe Maghrébin> by Ph. Marçais
-<Maltese linguistic surveys> by Joseph Aquilina
and a copple of books about Moroccan Arabic...
For the rest I used my imagination and my (somewhat limited) knowledge of
the Portuguese language and its dialects...
Is there someone at this list who knows (about) Maltese?
I am very curious what a speaker of Maltese thinks of Alborgian, and if
s/he can understand it, recognize it as related to his/her own language
etc. And the same goes for speakers or students of Maghrebi Arabic
(Algeria, Morocco, Tunesia, Mauretania, Lybia) as well, of course.
