Etymology[edit]

From Arabic مَوْت(mawt). The plural mwiet is originally that of the adjective mejjet (dead). It is still used as such in set phrases like qam minn bejn l-imwiet (to rise from the dead). The feminine gender probably through influence by Sicilian morti, Italian morte, both from Latin mors f; perhaps reinforced by analogy with the antonym ħajja (life).
