Maltese Diacritics


( EnglishMalti )

This is a simple tool for automatically adding diacritics to letters from the Maltese alphabet.

This tool operates over a wordlist built from the following sources:

This tool is still in experimental status, and its precision depends on the completeness and correctness of the underlying wordlist. Since words are processed individually, ambiguities such as “hu” (he) vs “ħu” (brother), or “tigri” (tigers) vs “tiġri” (run), cannot be resolved, and are left unchanged.


If you find any missing words, you can add them through the text box below. Please ensure that any submitted words are spelt correctly, including their diacritics. You can submit multiple words simultaneously, separating them with spaces or newlines. All submissions are added to the internal wordlist immediately, but will be manually verified later.
