Compiled by a renowned linguist and expert in New Zealand's Maori language, this dictionary was designed as a comprehensive finder list. Incorporating words from leading dictionaries from the colonial periods as well as contemporary Maori words, this handy introduction to the language includes more than 15,000 headwords--each of which may have several Maori equivalents. First published in 1981, this updated edition offers an authoritative snapshot into an indigenous culture.
