Maltese is a Semitic language believed to have descended from Siculo-Arabic, that has been mainly influenced by Sicilian and Standard Italian. About half its words are borrowed from Italian and Sicilian, with English accounting for up to 20% of the Maltese vocabulary. Maltese is the national language of Malta and shares the status of its co-official language, alongside English. It is the only Semitic language to use the Latin alphabet in its standard form and to be recognized as an official language of the European Union. The oldest reference to Maltese was in 1364 from the Benedictine Monks of Catania, who were unable to open a monastery in Malta because they could not understand the native language. The Maltese language started to develop into a distinct language in the 11th century, after the Normans ended the Arab rule of the islands. Since then, the vernacular developed from its Arabic source alongside Italian. Throughout the centuries, the use of Maltese was generally discouraged. In the nineteenth century, concerted efforts were made to transcribe spoken Maltese in a comprehensive written form. Finally, in 1934 Maltese was recognised as an official language.
