A Māori Reference Grammar – by Ray Harlow

A Māori Reference Grammar is a comprehensive description of how the Māori language works. Te reo Māori is examined and explained from pronunciation and word formation to the way words are combined into phrases and phrases into sentences. With examples drawn from a range of sources, traditional to modern, this text examines all constructions of modern Māori and considers regional and idiomatic variation in pronunciation and usage.

Based on a third-year university course Ray Harlow taught for a number of years, this grammar reference book is intended for people whose knowledge of Māori is at that level or higher – advanced learners, native speakers and teachers of Māori.

Format: This book is a Paper back

Language: This book contains both English & te reo Māori text.
