Online Maori Dictionary

In the ‘why don’t I know about this’ department is the fabulous Maori Online Dictionary.  I’m sure this isn’t new to lots of people in New Zealand but I hadn’t seen it until tonight.  While it is targeted at Maori Language students I’m planning on using it to translate some signs I want to make and will be giving it a big plug during Maori Language Week.

Māori Dictionary Project

The overall aim of this website is to support learners of Māori. New entries and additional meanings continue to be added. In 2007 photographs of species and people began to be added. Unless otherwise listed below, these are the copyright of the author. The following people and institutions are acknowledged for their photographs:
Ben Barr – geckos, skink, pūriri moth, Hochstetter frog.
Bub Smith – whio

In 2009 the sounds of all the native birds were added to the dictionary. We gratefully acknowledge the McPherson Natural History Unit and Viking Sevenseas Ltd for permission to use these.

This dictionary complements the series of four textbooks and related resources in the Te Whanake series for learning the Māori language. For further information about the Māori language resources please visit the Te Whanake resources website.

    It sounds like it is inn place too help protect the bank customer, when in reality it may actually hurt
    them more than it helps. They may not have made the papers, but these small scale con artists still cheated
    their victims out of every last penny. One
    of the most obvious result of thhe advancement of technology and is taken as oone
    of itts greatest benefits to humans iis auto banking.
