He Pātaka Kupu

Ngā kupu 24,000 Māori tautuhitia i roto i te reo Māori: he taupānga mō tērā

E wātea ana te papakupu reo Māori e mōhiotia nei ko He Pātaka Kupu  hei taupānga mō ngā waea iphone, android anō hoki. E wātea ana hoki tētahi tomokanga hou ki te papakupu ki hepatakakupu.nz(external link)

I whakaputaina He Pātaka Kupu  ki te ao i te tau 2008, ā, koia hoki te papakupu tuatahi, reo Māori ake, i tōna putanga mai. Ina hoki ko ērā atu papakupu katoa he papakupu Ingarihi-Māori, Māori-Ingarihi rānei.

I hua mai He Pataka Kupu ā-ipurangi i tētahi mahi tahi o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori me Te Ipukarea. He ōrite te wheako o te hunga e whakamahi ana i He Pātaka Kupu ki a rātou e whakamahi ana i Te Aka, te pukapuka kupu reorua.

E ai ki te Tumuaki tuarua o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, a Tuehu Harris, i ngā tāngata e ako whakamua ana i tētahi reo, atu i tō rātou reo taketake, he mea nui kia whakamahia nuitia ake te reo tuarua me te kore aro ki te reo tuatahi.

“He ruarua noa ngā reo iwi taketake whai papakupu reo takitahi, me ngā painga katoa ka hua ake ki te reo Māori i tētahi papakupu reo takitahi. He waimarie te putanga o tēnei rauemi hei whakamahinga mā ngā kaikōrero me ngā akonga reo Māori i te ipurangi me ōna āhuatanga hou.

Kei te taha o ngā whakamārama tikanga i te reo Māori ko ngā tauira, mai i ngā pukapuka kua tāia noatia. Mā ngā tauira ka mārama te tangata ki te whakamahinga tika o ia kupu. He ngāwari te whakatairite i ngā kupu ōrite mā tepāwhiri hononga i te taupānga, ki aua kupu.

24,000 ngā kupu motuhake i roto i He Pātaka Kupu, ā, kua oti te tautapa i ia kupu ki tētahi rohenga atua Māori, pēnei i a Tangaroa, te atua o te moana me tōna tini, i a Tānemahuta rānei me tōna anō.

Mā konei ka kitea ake ia kupu i tōna pūtakenga Māori tūturu, he rerekē i te whakaaro ake ki ia kupu mā tōna kupu Ingarihi tūtata pea te aronga.

Kei tēnei pukapuka ko ngā kupu anake e rangona ana i ēnei rā, me ngā aronga o nāianei. Ko ētahi o ngā kupu i tangohia mai i ētahi atu reo kāore i whakaurua mai mehemea he kupu Māori taketake ka taea te whāwhā atu, heoi, tērā tonu ētahi i whakaurua mai, pēnei i ‘mīere’, mai i te reo Wīwī, me te kupu whakamutunga rawa o te papakupu, arā, te ‘whutupōro’, mai i te kupu reo Ingarihi ‘football’.

Kei te tino whakamahia nuitia e te tangata te pukapuka tūturu i puta i mua i ēnei rā o te waipukenga o ngā akomanga reo Māori i ngā taumata o runga.
