In a sense. When grain sprouts, enzymes are produced which convert the
starch in the grain to a form of sugar (maltose). Barley seems to do this
conversion especially well. When you buy malt, you are buying the sugar
in honey-like syrup or dry powder form, extracted from sprouted grain.

No when you buy malt, you buy barley the has sprouted and then dryed.

The honey-like syrup or dry powder form, is not malt, but malt extract.

Argh. I'll never get this stuff right. I was thinking "extract" there, but
didn't write it that way... (sorry 'bout that!)
