Te Reo Māori
In Māori, macrons are used to indicate how vowels should be pronounced (vowels with macrons have a longer sound).
An easy way to find out which vowels have macrons is to search the Māori Dictionary.
For how to type macrons using your keyboard see How do I use Māori Macrons?
Use of italics
If you are writing in English, italicise Māori words unless they are in common use (e.g., haka, hui, iwi, kai, kia ora, Pākeha, whānau).
For a guide to capitalisation see:
APA style capitalization
The recommendations for capitalisation in the 7th edition of APA Style are as follows:
- Ethnic and racial groups are capitalized, e.g. Māori rather than māori.
- Capitalise Indigenous and Indigenous People when a group is being referred to.
- Do not capitalise the word people when individuals are being referred to.
