This book is more than just a dictionary. It has a comprehensive but succinct introduction to pronunciation and grammar and introduces the use of nouns, verbs and adjectives in a te reo context making it a great guide to keep checking back in with. It also gives the reader days of the week, months and seasons and has a pretty good list of Ingoa wāhi o Aotearoa – New Zealand place names. The inclusion of He whakatau-ā-kī – proverbs provide another great resource to refer back to. I think these editions are really helpful and round out the dictionary.
