Example text

However, it had fallen out of use and was replaced by the transliteration meha (measure). Ine has now been reinstated through its use in M¯aori-medium mathematics classrooms. Another example is tuaka which had the traditional meaning of “midrib of a leaf” or the “line that runs down the middle joining two mats”. In the development of the te reo M¯aori mathematics terms, tuaka became the term for an “axis” of a graph. • Circumlocution. This is where the mathematics term created is an explanation rather than just a single word.

This was a different approach to what had occurred elsewhere. Other than M¯aori and perhaps Hawaiian, the predominant strategy used in the Pacific, particularly with Polynesian languages, has been to transliterate and/or modify phonologically the existing English language mathematical terms to fit the native vernacular (Begg, 1991). The countries that have followed this approach include Samoa, Tonga, Niue, Rarotonga, and French Polynesia (Begg, 1991). Many languages make use of an international terminology in areas like mathematics.

In many language development situations, the development of new vocabulary is incidental (Spolsky, 2004), and this was the case for mathematical vocabulary in te reo M¯aori in the 1980s. Much of the early creation of te reo M¯aori mathematics terms was done by teachers, working in M¯aori-immersion situations, with some support from local kaum¯atua, or elders. , 1998). A profusion of new words was created, many of which were known only in the locality of origin. At this time, the development of the M¯aori-medium mathematics terminology was a “bottom-up” development based on the belief by the teachers that te reo M¯aori had the resources for discussing mathematics at any level.
