The book provides explanations and examples of all the important sentence types of modern Māori. It guides readers progressively from the simple to the more complicated, starting with words and particles, proceeding through simple clauses and sentences to transformations of these and to complex sentences with elaborate internal structure"--Publisher information.

There are 8 Chapters in this guide to Māori grammar including pronunciation and spelling, phrases and particles, word formation, simple sentences and numerals and time expressions.
Ray Harlow was Professor of Linguists at the University of Waikato and a foundation member of Te Taura Whiri I te Reo Māori, The Māori Language Commission.
His main audience in mind for this book is second-language learners of Māori who have reached levels equivalent to third or fourth year tertiary study of language as well as native speakers of Māori who are perhaps teaching the language in an English-medium school or language tuition. Users will need to already have skills in speaking and writing Māori but may want further accounts and explanations of Māori structure.
This edition is a 2015 update.
