Malagasy Language Facts:

  • 18 million native speakers
  • Spoken by 0.28% of the world population
  • Mainly spoken in Madagascar

Malagasy (in French also: Malgache) is the westernmost member of the Austronesian language family, spoken on Madagascar, where it is an official language. The name Malagasy is also used to refer to the indigenous people of Madagascar, who make up some 36 tribes and are of mixed Indonesian and African descent.

Malagasy shares 90% of its basic vocabulary with Maanyan, a language from the region of the Barito River in southern Borneo. This is a result of the fact that the island was first settled from about 1,500 to 2,000 years ago by Indonesians, probably mostly from Borneo. Later, the original Indonesian settlers mixed with East Africans and Arabs, amongst others.

The Malagasy language also includes borrowings from Bantu languages and Arabic. It has a highly unusual Verb Object Subject word order. Words are accented on the penultimate syllable, unless the word ends in ka, tra or na, in which case they are accented on the antepenultimate syllable. Unstressed vowels are often elided; thus fanorona is pronounced /fa'nurn/ ("fa-NOORN") and Malagasy sounds like its French transliteration Malgache.

Malagasy orthography maps rather straightforwardly into phonetics, with a few exceptions. The letter i is replaced by y at the end of words, and o is pronounced /u/.

The alphabet consists of 21 letters: a, b, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, r, s, t, v, y, z. The letters Ô (o-circumflex) and n̈ (n-diaeresis) are occasionally used, for instance in place names such as Tôlan̈aro, Antsiran̈ana, Iharan̈a, Anantson̈o. This can be seen in in maps from FTM, the national institute of geodesy and cartography. Alternative spellings and pronunciations such as "Taolagnaro" exist.
