Fun facts about Malagasy

When travelling in Madagascar, it is important to respect the 'fady' or traditional taboos, which vary from region to region. For example, it is forbidden to point at a grave and to work on certain days of the week.

The formal word for 'you' is 'tompoko', literally means 'my master / mistress'.

Despite being spoken on an island off the coast of East Africa, Malagasy is actually related to Malay, Indonesian, Filipino and the various Polynesian languages.
