  • Ko te wātū: Kei te haere mātou ināianei. haere ana mātou ināianei.
  • Ko te wāheke: Ka haere mātou ā te Rātapu.

Ko te nuinga o ngā kupu, kīanga rānei e tohu ana i te wāmua, ka tīmata ki te ‘i’, ki te ‘nō’ rānei. Hei tauira:

  • inanahi, nōnanahi, inā noa nei, nō nā noa nei, i te Rāhina, nō tērā marama.

Ko te ‘ā’ me te ‘hei’ ngā kupu matua o te reo Māori hei tohu wāheke. Hei tauira:

  • āhea, ā te Rātapu, āpopo, ā muri i te ..., hei tēra wiki, hei muri i te ...
