            This collection contains more than 2,500 pepeha, or "sayings of the ancestors," that were gathered and compiled from all over New Zealand over a 20-year period. More than just proverbs, pepeha include charms, witticisms, figures of speech, and boasts, and they are featured in the... formal speeches heard every day on the marae and in the oral literature handed down from past generations. These expressions provide a rich source of vocabulary, using metaphor and an economy of words to show language that enriches the Maori of today.

            Language, Society, and New Media: An Introduction to Cultural Linguistics demonstrates the dynamic connections between language, society, thought, and culture and how they continue to evolve in today's rapidly changing digital world, ideal for students in introductory courses in ...sociolinguistics, language and culture, and linguistic anthropology. This book uses an interdisciplinary approach, integrating frameworks from sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology and emerging strands of research on language and new media, to demonstrate the relationship between language, society, thought, and culture to students with little to no background in linguistics. Couched in this integrative cultural linguistic approach, each chapter covers the significant topics in this area, including language structures, language and cognition, and language variation and change, while also presenting future avenues of study by ending each chapter in a description of how language is evolving in online contexts - discussions are supported by a wealth of pedagogical features, including sidebars, activities and assignments, and a glossary.
