How's your Canaanite?

The art of speaking Canaanite has been lost for a long time. However, bits may be preserved in the language spoken by the old-timers on the Mediterranean island of Malta. Signs--like this one on a public bus in Valletta--carry English as well as the traditional Maltese. I suppose we should thank (or blame) the Scipio boys for this. If not for them, we'd all be studying Hanni-Baal's brand of Canaanite instead of Latin.
