In Maori the noun precedes the adjective. This means that you name the object first, then you describe it. This is called the "name it, describe it" principle.
i.e.: red = whero stick = rakau
red stick = rakau whero
Examples of this can be found throughout New Zealand, by looking at some place names.
i.e.: big = nui awa = awa
big river = awa nui
Using the above pattern, translate the following sentences. Start each sentence with a He meaning "A".
