Synopsis

This collection of essays by noted linguistic specialists is an invaluable addition to the scholarship and study of New Zealand language and linguistics. Distinguished by the use of Maori words such as kia ora (hello) and grammatical features such as ""at the weekend,"" New Zealand English is a relatively recent variety of English that is currently gaining in local prestige and is something that many younger New Zealanders claim as part of their identity.
