I guess you'll have to call someone in Madagascar, that's about the only way I figure you can get help with that!

Hi, Ritu,
www.answers.com (or wikipedia) can help a lot with such things. You can even listen to the pronunciation.
I found 6 of them there - for the rest, you can try google, writing the name and "pronunciation" in the search box.


Ma·yotte (mä-yôt')

An·ta·na·na·ri·vo (ăn'tə-năn'ə-rē'vō, än'tə-nä'nə-)

Antsiranana (änt'sērä'nānä) , formerly Diégo-Suarez (dē-ā'gō-swär'ĕs)

Nosy Be, also Nossi-bé -

Toamasina (tōəm'əsēnə) , formerly Tamatave (tämätäv')

Antsirabe -

Fianarantsoa (fyänäräntsū'ə, –tsō'ə)

Toliara (also known as Toliary and formerly Tuléar) -

Mahajanga (mä'häjäng'gä) , formerly Majunga (mäjūng'gä)

Taolagnaro -

Morondava -

You can get to the pronunciation key page by clicking on any pronunciation, eg, on the page http://www.answers.com/Mahajanga?ff=1

Cheers,
Attila
