Kimihia Te Mea Ngaro: Seek That Which is Lost

This publication of the 1992 Macmillan Brown Lectures by one of the founders of modern Oceanic descriptive and historical linguistics is a significant contribution to knowledge in several fields: Maori studies, comparative Oceanic and Polynesian linguistics, and systems of thought. It is also an exquisite example of the unique and wide-ranging scholarship of its author and the singular flavor of his expression.
