Listening to Maltese is very strange for me (I speak Italian). I can understand one of every three words! For an English speaker it would be like this: "Linguistics wahalla tafnu psychological perspective illabni wahatta person wa expert il-language sociological wihi intelligence artificial wahalla ibnu interest afahal research allafnah wahdah important..." Ah ah ah ah!! Very beautiful language!!!
Dette er nemlig Formelen, som beskriver Selvets Tilstand, naar Fortvivlelsen ganske er udryddet: i at forholde sig til sig selv, og i at ville være sig selv grunder Selvet gjennemsigtigt i den Magt, som satte det. (This is namely the formula, that describes the condition of the self, when despair is completely eradicated: by relating itself to itself, and by willing to be itself, the self is grounded transparently in the power which constituted it) (Søren Kierkegaard, The sickness unto death)

Does anyone know if this is some sort of dialectical difference? If it is, and it's "acceptable" to not roll your Rs, Maltese will definitely be on my need-to-study-soon list. :P

I imagine the lack of rolled Rs is due to the influence of English. Either that or perhaps some of the people in the video are native English speakers.
