He Iti te Kupu contains nearly 500 sayings that draw a comparison between something (often the natural world) and people, events or contexts. Written in Maori and English, this accessible guide explains the use, meaning and context of a host of the principal figures of speech in te Reo. Divided into themes, including birds of the land and sea, parts of the body, acknowledgements, animals and insects. The title derives from the proverb, 'The words are small, yet their meanings are substantial,' highlighting the importance of these sayings in the landscape of Maori language learning and speaking. This volume will prove to be an invaluable resource for beginning and advanced learners of te Reo Maori.
