I've been doing this by trying to explain that when it comes to politics, it is normal, healthy even, that reasonable people have wildly differing opinions.

Re: Maori language questions

I have a question on how the apostrophe is used/pronounced in Maori words. Is a glottal stop, a break like a hyphen, or what? Do you mean the 'macron'? Such as the macron above the letter 'a' in Māori? If so, the macron means a long vowel sound. No, I’m speaking about the apostrophe in these surnam...
