Title: Grammaire Malgache
Written By: M. Gabriel Ferrand
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 02

Le malgache est une langue agglutinative du groupe Malayo-polynésien.
L'alphabet le plus en usage à Madagascar est l'alphabet latin qui fut
introduit en 1820 par les missionnaires de la Société de Londres. Cet Essai
de grammaire a été spécialment écrit pour nos étudiants. La classification
des racines et des verbes, la formation des dérivés et leurs variations
toniques ont été étudiées en détail à leur intention (de la préface de
l'édition 1903).

Table des matières: De l'alphabet, de l'orthographe, des mots, des racines,
des verbes et préfixes verbaux, du relatif, des auxiliaires et particules,
de l'article, du substantif, du cas, du pronom, de l'adjectif, des noms de
nombre, de l'adverbe, de la préposition, de la conjunction, de
l'interjection, appendice.

In his grammar Gabriel Ferrand - a member of the Société Asiatique and the
Société de Linguistique - mainly focuses on nominal and verbal morphology
and tonology of Mal-gache, a Malayo-polynesien language of Madagascar. This
re-edition has been published as no. 02 in the LINCOM Gramatica (LINGram)
series (originally published 1903, Paris: Ernest Leroux, written in French).
