The use of te reo Maori has snowballed in the past few years, as has the demand for Maori language courses and resources. But many English speakers yearn for a thorough guide to the building blocks of grammar in te reo, and the differences between Maori and English language principles.
Te Reo Maori: The Basics Explained offers just that. After an introductory chapter on pronunciation and written forms of the language, 17 chapters introduce the main base words, particles and determiners that guide their use. The book employs real-life examples to illustrate how Maori grammar works day to day, while teaching how to build phrases, sentences and paragraphs.
All in a user-friendly layout, with key language aspects highlighted.
