Linguicide IS genocide. :)

He ingoa ōpaki a Riki; he ingoa ōkawa a Ariki.

Riki is an informal name; Ariki is a formal name.

Katahi anō au ka whakahono ki tēnei pae tukutuku, ā, ko tāku mahi i reira, hei whakatikatika haere, hei whakamāori haere hoki, i ngā kōrero i tāuta atu ra ki runga i taua mātāpunenga. He taonga tino nui tēnei, nō reira, ka whakatenatena atu au i a koutou ko ngā tauira ki te eke ake ra ki taua pae tukutuku pānui ai i ngā kōrero!

I've just joined this website, and, my job there, is to go around editing, and to go around translating as well, the articles that have been uploaded on to that encyclopedia. This is a very important taonga, so, I encourage you, the students, to go to that website to read the articles!

Have you considered signing up to Wikibooks, too, and maybe reposting the Maori course there? It would be easier to find and peruse than on this forum and there might be people ready to help you edit it.

I haven't considered that, and, I'm very busy with different translation projects on this website.

However, I believe in as much interaction as possible between teacher and student. Its a Polynesian thing I guess.
