We'll add some of the maori language here, it may be one word at a time, well give the word, how it's pronounced, and what it means in english.. There's no letter "F"in the Maori alphabet. if you see a word that starts with "WH" then that is pronounced as an "F" in maori..

If there's an "R" in a word, it's always rolled, just like the Scottish roll their R in a good Scottish accent..

The other surprising thing is that Rarotongan and the Maori languages are very similar, one difference is the Rarotongan's speak a lot faster, so people like myself who aren't 100% fluent have a lot of trouble keeping up, some fluent Maori have been known to have a little trouble keeping up especially given the Rarotongan's have a slightly different way of pronouncing some words..

At some stage we'll start a different thread and ask you to see if you can translate a few words in to english, it may be one word, it may be a sentence.. Smile Don't worry though, we'll make sure it's only words that have already been added here..
