              This dictionary and index comprises a selection of modern and everyday language that will be extremely useful for learners of the Maori language. it has a broader scope than traditional dictionaries, so as well as the words one would usually expect in a dictionary, it also includ...es: encyclopaedic entries designed to provide key information about plants, animals (including sh and insects), stars, planets, heavenly bodies, important Maori people, key ancestors of traditional narratives, tribal groups, ancestral canoes, song types, traditional musical instruments, Maori names for institutions, country names, place names and other proper names, explanations of key concepts central to Maori culture; comprehensive explanations for grammatical items, with examples of usage idioms and colloquialisms. These have all been included because they are important in communicating in a Maori context, and contribute to understanding and speaking the language in a natural way. While this dictionary is designed to stand alone, it not only contains all the words used in the Te Whanake series of narrative texts and resources, but is indexed to the Te Whanake series, thus giving quick access to topics, maps, illustrations, idioms, colloquialisms, proverbs, tribal sayings, grammar and usage explanations.

              He Kupu Arotau: Loanwords in Maori 1842-1952
                

              He Kupu Arotau: Loanwords in Maori 1842-1952 (Paperback)

              By Moorfield, John C.

              Adopting words from English into Maori and vice-versa has expanded and enriched the lexical bank of both languages. These loanwords are an important part of modern Maori. This dictionary presents over 3,000 loanwords that are, or have been, in common use in spoken and written Mao...ri. Many of the headwords in this dictionary do not occur in any other existing dictionary of Maori. The dictionary includes loanwords for personal names and place names, as well as the usual words found in dictionaries such as nouns, verbs and adjectives. The dictionary has a comprehensive introduction explaining how these loanwords have been adapted to the phonological and grammatical systems of Maori. Each headword is presented with its meanings, grammatical category and example sentences from the sources, with translations. An indication of the earliest occurrence each loanword was encountered and the frequency of use in the written sources are provided for most entries. Important sources for the loanwords included the Maori language newspapers, the Maori Bible and Nga Tangata Taumata Rau. An English-Maori finder list is provided.
