Ngā Kīrehu o…

Maria Williams (Tumuaki Tuarua—Mātauranga)
“I kno-w!”

Used to indicate how you know something. However, emphasis placed upon the tone can alter the meaning slightly to convey an emphatic agreement as an answer to a question. Alternatively, you can add a ‘right?’ to the end like so: “That movie was pretty oosh”, “I kno-w, right?”

Mandy Leckie (Kaitiaki Pūtea):

Popular saying and word of treasurers all over the world. Usually used as a request, generally taken as a threat. No receipt, no cry. So give your receipt then cry cos you didn’t get as much money as you wanted.

Natalie Goldsmith (Āpiha Hākinakina):
“If you don’t come to practice, you’re on the bench!”

Popular saying of coaches and team captains. Usually and generally a threat that is most often followed through. Only to be used with a voice of authority. And in times when used in a written or typed form, like an email, then use of exclamation mark is imperative to convey the voice of authority.

Lashania Fraser-Johnson (Āpiha Whakangāhau)

Used as a term of wonder, awe and appreciation. Other variations also include ‘ooosh’, ‘oosh’ and ‘oooshness’. Not to be used sparingly.

Kia hiwa rā!
