Ngā Kīrehu o…

Victor Manawatu (Tumuaki):
“That’s beauuuuuuuuutiful…!”

Usually said when one is appreciative of a person or thing or kaupapa. Though it has also been used in occasions when one is at loss for words during an awkward silence following a suggestion. Like in meetings.

Ani Racheal McGarvey (Āpiha Ākonga):
“Sooooooooooooooo…what are YOU up to?”

Usually used as a way of finding out what a person is up to. However, it is also used as a starting conversation for not what the person is doing, but what they will be doing due to the approaching demand of the person who asked the question.

Mariana Whareaitu (Āpiha Pāpāho)

Usually used as confirmation of a request, suggestion or recommendation. However, it can also be used as a non-committal response or in lieu of ‘chur’.

Taawhana Chadwick (ex-Āpiha Pāpāho)
“Love you long time!”

Usually said affectionately as parting words. However, it can also be used as parting words in a manner of fobbing off responsibility to
someone else.

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.
