Dictionnaire malgache dialectal-français (Dialectical Malagasy-French dictionary)

Tandroy dialect

The Malagasy language, part of the Malayo-Polynesian branch of the Austronesian language family, is divided into three dialect groups which correspond roughly to three ecological zones in Madagascar. The language variations spoken by these eighteen different ethnic groups are mutually understandable, with the one exception being the dialect spoken by the Southern Tandroy.

This dialectical and lexographical work represents a complete inventory of the resources available on Malagasy. Because Malagasy society is undergoing a rapid transformation, it is important to offer to the public a dictionary describing the different dialects of modern Malagasy. Accompanied by an introduction to Malagasy grammar, this bilingual dictionary is the first step toward understanding and approaching Tandroy culture.
