The Maori King

Excerpt from The Maori King: Or the Story of Our Quarrel With the Natives of New Zealand It is convenient to observe here, that the Maori names which are generally used throughout the following pages for Maori chiefs and places, can be correctly pronounced by attending to three rules: - (1) The vowels have the Italian sound. (2) Diphthongs are pronounced by uttering the two component vowel-sonnds in one breath. (3) "Ng" is pronounced as in the word "singing." It has been sometimes necessary to use colonial or native words, such as "cultivations," "tapu," &c., to denote things which have not English names.
