  1. Kia ora Anaru

    I have often seen words like manaakitangi written and wondered why it doesn't have tohutō over the double aa.

    Can you clarify this for me??

      In the case of manaakitanga it is two words joined together; mana (prestige, status) and aki (to encourage). When you manaaki (care for) someone you are giving them status and are being hospitable.

    Kei te tungāne, te mutunga kē mai o te pai o āu nā whakamahukitanga mō te tohutō. Inā hoki te rawe o ngā kiriata poto nei hei āwhina i te tangata ki te patopato/tuhituhi i te tohutō. Kua ākona e au mē pēwhea te tuku tohutō ki ngā pukarangi ināianei :)

    Kia ora Anaru,

    Thanks to you, I now have easy access to macrons on my Windows computer. No more adding symbols or copying and pasting words from the internet.

    Thanks for the practical advice.

    Hei konā rā.

      You are welcome, I have come across a lot of people doing what you were and this was one of the reasons for doing this blog.

    Kia ora Anaru, tēnā koe e hoa mō tou awhi, i have just recently changed over to using a tablet as my primary device, and it was frusturating me not having the macrons. How do you get macrons on your iphone ?  Ngā Mihi

    1. Anaru White says:

      Kia ora Keela

      To add macrons on your iPhone it is the same as adding them as shown on the iPad/Tablet video. Press the desired vowel and hold it down then slide to the macron option.

    Nga mihi Anaru,  I have a keyboard for my ipad.  How do you write macrons with the attached keyboard? 

  6. Kia ora Maxine,

    Every iPad external keyboard maybe a little different.

    I have a Logitech keyboard.

    To add tohutō you have to bring up the iPad keyboard, insert the macron, then go back to the external keyboard.

    To do that press the function key and (for me) the 3 key with a little picture of a keyboard.

    The iPad keyboard will come up- insert the letter with the macron and then go back to the external keyboard.

    I have uploaded a photo to show you how it looks on my keyboard.
