Out now, Oratia’s newest book He Iti te Kupu: Māori Metaphors and Similes, by Massey University scholar Hona Black, is a valuable reference for writing and speaking te reo Māori.
In the book Hona Black brings together nearly 500 figures of speech into a ready resource for speakers and students of te reo — and anyone who wishes to deepen their language use in New Zealand.
Hona wrote this, his first book, in te reo. That text is printed on the left-hand pages of the book, with his translation into English on the facing right-hand pages.
