Statement on the use of macrons


The Department of Internal Affairs Te Reo Policy supports the correct use of the Maori language and in particular the Maori Language Commission guideline that macrons be used in Maori words where appropriate.

However, current technology and limited standardisation prevents the accurate display of macrons. For this reason, we are not using macrons at this time. We are monitoring IT developments and will address the issue as soon as we can display macrons correctly across all browser platforms.
