I have been learning Malagasy since my first stay in the country in 2009 and then progressively in the following years both in Madagascar and with the Malagasy community in France. It is a very elegant and expressive language, a geographical outlier of the same family of Austronesian languages in which I have studied Wallisian, Futunan and Netwar (Lenakel).

I wrote the first comprehensive Malagasy-Czech dictionary published, which can be found in the Czech translation of my website. Below you can read my sketch of Malagasy grammar and a list of recorded words with pronunciation notes.
