The goal of this paper is to explore a possible dialectal (and idiolectal) variation within measure phrases in Malagasy. It appears that there is a word order variation that appears in structure of the type two bottles of wine. We will see further that there are idiolect variations within one dialect in term of what acts as the head of the entire nominal.
