Words adapted from other languages are an important part of modern Maori. This new dictionary presents over 3,000 loanwords that are, or have been, in common use in spoken and written Maori. Many of the headwords in this dictionary do not occur in any other existing dictionary of Maori.
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 English-Maori finder list is provided.
