Term 3 - Week 4 - 2018

Kupu o te wiki

Ka hoki mai! / KHM
Be right back / BRB / Will return              
Ka hoki mai!        Be right back

Literally ‘Will return!’

Kupu o te ra

ia rā, ia rā: every day

Ia rā, ia rā, tunu ai au i te hapa.
Every day, (each day) I cook dinner.

 (day) can be replaced with any word appropriate to the context: wiki (week), marama (month), tau (year), Rāapa (Wednesday), etc.

Repetition like this is often used for emphasis.
