How much time have you got? I once read that there were 13 ways to pronounce it. Don't know if that's true. I think some of it depends on what accent you have. I believe Jem is pronouncing it with a Maori accent as opposed to how Rhys (or perhaps any non Maori New Zealander) says it in the "New Zealand Town" ep as Mowry. The first time I heard the word was from a Maori girl I met in London, the way she said it was very close to Mary. I think with the Maori accent the R is supposed to sound like a cross of an L and a D which makes it a slippery pronunciation, at least for me.munchkin wrote:How do you pronounce "Maori"?
