Maltese is spoken/used in Malta
Family: Afro-Asiatic (Hamito-Semitic)
The Maltese Archipelago consists of the islands of Malta, Gozo, and Comino and two other uninhabited islands, Cominotto and Filfia. The Maltese speak a very ancient language which is of great interest to linguists. Basically Semitic, it assimilated a large number of Romance words over the years, with the result that today it represents the fusion of two linguistic branches. This fact reflects the position of Malta in the Mediterranean Sea, halfway between southern Europe and North Africa.
