Challeged by Tau Henare to do my bit for saving what Maori can’t be bothered saving for themselves, and given that the NZEI union now wants Te Reo as a compulsory subject in schols I thought I would start a new series here on Whale Oil Beef Hooked.
Today’s Te Reo word is KotÄnga (n)
KotÄnga = car aerial
Examples of modern usage:
Some mo-fo broke off the aerial so I replaced with aÂ KotÄnga, it works choice bro. Chur.
The KotÄnga is wobbly bro, stick some more duct tape Â around it. chur bro.
The car stereo won’t go bro, no aerial….Stick a KotÄnga in there you fuckin’ egg, that’ll fix it bro.
See! A KotÄnga works thereifixedit, chur bro.
