Changing Pronouns

Look carefully at the chart in your book.  The K words - koe, kōrua and koutou change when the answer is given:

How are you?  I am good.   =   Kei te pēhea koe?  Kei te pai ahau.

How are you two?  We are both good.     =    Kei te pēhea kōrua?  Kei te pai māua.

How are you fellas?  We are all good.     =    Ket te pēhea koutou?  Kei te pai mātou.



All the other pronouns in the last two sections remain the same from the question to the answer.  

How is she?  She is great.   =   Kei te pēhea ia?  Kei te pai ia.

How are we all?  We are all tired.   =  Kei te pēhea tātou?  Kei te ngenge tātou.

 Kei te = Now 

Kei te pēhea tou whaea?  (How is your mother at this moment?)
Kei te ngenge ia.  (She is tired)

Kei te pēhea koutou?  (How are you fellas?)
Kei te harikoa mātou. (We are happy.)

A and O Pronouns

There are two different types of pronouns:

       Mine           yours          his/hers
A:    t/āku               tāu              t/āna           
(we have control over - partner, children, food) 

O:          t/ōku              t/ōu              t/ōna            
(same generation or older, transport, house, support body)

Drop the t for two or more objects.

 

Kei te pēhea tōku matua? ( How is my father?)

Kei te pēhea tāna kuri?  (How is their dog?)

Kei te pēhea a Helen? (How are you Helen?)

Kei te pēhea ngā tamariki? (How are the children?)
