This collection presents a range of linguistic studies on the Māori language and pays tribute to the work of Ray Harlow, linguist and scholar, who has contributed significantly to research into the development and grammar of the Māori language.

Starting with an overview on the history of linguistic description of te reo Māori, the volume discusses a variety of issues, such as sound changes in Māori, the influence of the Bible translation on the language, a historical account of a lost Māori dialect, traditional Māori chants and the oral tradition, Māori discourse features, Māori rugby commentary, and differences in meaning associations between Māori bilingual and Pākehā monolingual speakers.
