This English–Māori and Māori–English dictionary has over 4,000 entries in each section. It relates to contemporary life by including words from English commonly used by today's Māori speakers. With a useful pronunciation guide and helpful information on parts of speech, it is an enormously useful tool for students and of relevance to linguists, anthropologists, researchers, and academics interested in Pacific Oceanic cultures and history.
Bruce Biggs (Ngāti Maniapoto; 1921–2000) was a renowned linguist and pioneer in the study of te reo Māori.
