"Maori words began to enter English in 1769 after the arrival of James Cook and H.M.S. Endeavour. They continue to do so today, with an estimated six words out of every thousand in written and spoken New Zealand English being of Maori origin. These words include the names of flora and fauna, aspects of material and social culture, and new creations, as well as place and personal names." "This dictionary presents a comprehensive picture of that presence in New Zealand English, and provides a vignette of New Zealand society through the citation accompanying many of the words."--BOOK JACKET." ;
