Te Reo Māori is a Māori language dictionary that is easy to use by searching for Māori or English words. As well as English meanings, it has example sentences with translations for many entries. It even has photographs for Aotearoa/New Zealand native flora and fauna.
As well as the words one would expect in a traditional dictionary, it also has encyclopaedic entries designed to provide key information about plants, animals, stars, planets, heavenly bodies, important Māori people, key ancestors of traditional narratives, tribal groups, ancestral canoes, song types, musical instruments, Māori names for institutions, country names, place names and other proper names. There are also detailed 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.
