Abstract:

Mäori, the indigenous language of New Zealand, is an endangered, minority
language, with an important role in the culture and identity of the Mäori
community. This comprehensive overview looks at all aspects of the Mäori
language: its history, its dialects, its sounds and grammar, its current
status, and the efforts being made by the Mäori community and the state to
ensure its survival.  Central chapters provide an overall sketch of the
structure of Mäori while highlighting those aspects which have been the
subject of detailed linguistic analysis - particularly phonology (sound
structure) and morphology (word structure). Though addressed primarily to
those with some knowledge of linguistics, this book describes a language
with a wealth of interesting features. It will interest anyone wishing to
study the structure of a minority language, in fields as diverse as
typology, sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology, as well as all
those interested in endangered languages and their preservation.
