Summary

"The Godzone Dictionary is a concise A - Z of the words and phrases that make our New Zealand language and speech patterns so different. Language expert Max Cryer examines a wide range of words and phrases, shedding light on their origin and offering helpful definitions. Slang words and expressions feature heavily, while one of the unique features of this book is the large number of Māori words that have become part of our common language in recent years. The listing also includes the popular names of our sports teams, and an appendix of common New Zealand acronyms completes the book."--Publisher information.
