This concise A-Z dictionary, now updated in a new expanded edition, is a quick and easy reference to understanding the words and phrases that make the New Zealand language and speech patterns so different.
Language expert Max Cryer not only provides helpful definitions for the various entries, but also sheds light on their origins.
Slang words feature heavily, while a key feature of the book is the large number of Maori words that have become part of the common language over the years.
Popular names of sports teams are also included, while an appendix of New Zealand acronyms completes the book.
