Welcome to the Keywey Language Lounge!

New Zealanders commonly refer to themselves as Kiwis - and I daresay that most of them enjoy thinking that people from other countries think of them as being Kiwis.

The following notes on dialectal oddities among Kiwis are a result of my own observations. The utterances were made by people with different social and regional backgrounds. Taken together they do not reflect the pronunciation of one individual.




ageen - again
 
auld - old
 
 brew - bro (brother)
 
ek-cess - access
 
hea - here
 
Keywey - Kiwi
 
lighta - later
 
 Merry - Mauri
 
oh-som - awesome
 
paua - power
 
plays - please
 
quistens - questions
 
sweyt - sweet
 
yeh - yeah
 
 
If you want to see Aussies taking the piss out of the kiwi dialect, then go to:
It doesn't sound authentic, but it's funny.
