Book of New Zealand Words PDF

Dianne Bardsley

Elegant, erudite and utterly up to date, this book contains more than 1500 unique New Zealand words and expressions. From afakasi to zespri, the Book of New Zealand Words presents an intriguing selection from the distinctive vocabulary of Aotearoa New Zealand, along with fresh, colourful examples of these words in use, from every period in our history and every walk of life. In an informed and engaging introduction, expert lexicographer Dr Dianne Bardsley tells the story of the development of New Zealand English since pre-settler times, and explores where we really get our unique words and popular sayings from: sports, politics, farming, popular culture, and uniquely in the world te reo Maori. This fascinating book is a store-house of curious facts and essential information on New Zealand society, culture, and history, giving real insight into our changing population, attitudes and beliefs. Specially illustrated by artist John Reynolds with all-new page art that quite literally draws on these New Zealand words, this is an indispensable reference and a must-have for anyone who loves language.
