Kōrero: Te reo Māori

Ngā kupu Māori, Tāhiti hoki nā Banks i kohikohi

Kei tēnei ripanga ngā kupu mai i te reo Māori (ngā kupu e whakamahia ana i te Tai Tokerau) me ō te reo o Tahiti i tuhia rā ki te puka tuhi a Joseph Banks, te kaimātai koiora i haere tahi mai me Kāpene Kuki i tana terenga mai ki te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa i ngā tau 1768–71.

Kei ngā ripanga e rua i te taha matau te whakatakoto o ēnei rā mō ēnei kupu. Ka kitea tonutia ngā ōritenga o ngā reo e rua – i takea mai ngā reo whanaunga nei i te kāwai Tahiti mai i te whānau reo o Austronesia.
