MAORI Dictionary - Online & App

Tēnā koe. Nau mai ki Te Aka

A very useful aid when coming across papers, documents etc whilst researching Māori. Many of the early settlers became fluent in speaking Māori and some even became translators

THE APP
this Māori dictionary is now available as an app. With the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android app you can use the dictionary anywhere without the need to be online

ONLINE
Welcome to the online version of Te Aka Māori-English, English-Māori Dictionary and Index. This online Māori dictionary is aimed at providing quick access but it is recommended that you also purchase the hard copy for use in class and when you are not online.

As well as the words one would expect in a traditional dictionary, Te Aka has encyclopaedic entries including the names of plants and animals (especially native and endemic species), stars, planets and heavenly bodies, important Māori people, key ancestors of traditional narratives, tribal groups and ancestral canoes. Māori names for institutions, country names, place names and other proper names are also provided.

There are also explanations of key concepts central to Māori culture. Comprehensive explanations for grammatical items are included, with examples of usage, as are idioms and colloquialisms with their meanings and examples. These have all been included because they are important in communicating in a Māori context, and contribute to understanding and speaking the language in a natural way. Many of the separate meanings of each headword now have example sentences with translations.

This dictionary is indexed to the Te Whanake Māori language series of narrative texts and resources, giving you quick access to topics, grammatical and usage explanations, idioms and colloquialisms, maps and illustrations.

the new 'Vote'/'Score' feature

hi Scott,
Is there any chance of enabling us to see who 'votes "up" (likes) our comments on posts? similar to how it shows on FB. This would show who is interested in the subject, who was helped by the comment or who agrees with what was said. This could lead to 2 or more of us working together to reach a solution

Obviously, this would not be popular for those giving a "down" vote' but in fact, a down vote is of little help on any comment if we don't know exactly what it is about the comment they do not agree with

Murder/Suicide during Honeymoon, PALMERSTON NORTH - 1899

John's Obituary

JOHN & MARTHA had 4 known children:
*1875 - 1876 Florence Llewellyn Price
- Florence died 4 Feb 1876 aged 5 months and is buried in Bolton St cemetery, Wellington

*1876 - 1962 Harvey 'Harry' Llewelyn Price
-- Harry married Lillian SIDDERS in 1911
- Lillian was from Kent, England. She was in a de facto relationship with Horace Edwin FERNEE who was still married to Emma Rhoda Palmer (1859-1936). They had a son Horace George Fernee (1896-1963). Lillian emigrated to NZ with 12 year old Horace in 1908. De facto Horace stayed in England and remarried in 1916 after a divorce from Emma.
* Harry & Lillian lived next door to his mother, Martha Price, at 28 Sussex Street, Masterton when Horace served as Private 23818 in WWI
- Harry died 5 July 1962 aged 81 and is buried Archer Street cemetery, Masterton

*1878 - MARTHA 'Minnie' PRICE
-- Minnie married William Daniel McKAIN, 4 Jan 1899 at 30 Sussex St (against her mother's wishes who thought she could do better than a brushmaker). William was 1 of 15 children of Daniel McKain & Amelia O'Hara, confectioners in Lower Hutt ... see STORY BELOW

*1880 - 1932 Edward Thomas Price
-- Edward married Helen May EXELL (1880-1963) in 1907
- Edward died 11 Dec 1932 aged 52 and is buried Archer Street cemetery, Masterton


The MURDER/SUICIDE of Minnie Price & William McKain
Minnie Price married William Daniel McKain, 4 Jan 1899
After a month long honeymoon in Dunedin, Christchurch & Auckland, William and Minnie returned to Wellington where William pawned his violin in Johnsonville to buy a ticket to Palmerston North.
They arrived there on Valentine's Day and were staying at the Royal Hotel. Three nights later, on Friday 17 Feb, William was heard in his room dictating a letter for Minnie to write (this later showed premeditation, the contents in link below)
At 4:20 next morning William shot Minnie with a revolver whilst she was in bed. Twenty minutes later he shot her again. An hour and 20 minutes later he turned the gun on himself
-- Minnie was 20 & William was 22 --
more on the Palmerston North tragedy

What is amazing to me and obviously many at the time, is why, when the other hotel guests heard the first and subsequent shots, was something not done at 4:20am?? Instead, later that morning when the housekeeper was unable to get in their room she called the police

Against his wishes in the letter, William is buried at Taita & Minnie is buried at Masterton.
