Modern Malagasy is written with the following letters:
- ' a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p r s t v w y z
These letters are called the Malagasy alphabet.
Children should know a growing number of words each year, preferably in more than 1 language. The Malagasy Children’s Dictionary is an aid for parents to quickly assess how many words their child knows in Malagasy.
