An A-Wh of Māori Grammar and Usage


The use of linguistic descriptions, to a large extent, has characterised much of how the Māori language has been described in grammar books and textbooks designed for the teaching and learning of te reo as a second or additional language. This approach tends to describe language at the sentence level of phonology, morphology, and syntactic structures. However, it scarcely makes use of semantic descriptions as a feasible approach to describe language beyond that sentence level.
