Short Maori lesson

Maori verb conjugation: I

Verbs are used to describe actions. Maori verbs in the present tense do not conjugate for each person. This means that the verb stays the same for 'I', 'you', 'he', 'they' etc. This is similar to the case in English.


kei te kai au
I eat
kei te pānui au
I read
kei te maumahara au
I remember
kei te oma au
I run
kei te kōrero au
I speak
