VI.

Have.

Has. Had.
E Whakahuatia ana te have, te has, te had, mo tenei tu kupu, "He mea ta tetahi tangata," mo tenei ranei, "Kei a ia tetahi mea." Ma nga kupu i raro iho nei ka ata kitea ai te tikanga.
Aianei. Present time.
Ki te taha o enei, I, we, you, they, me maka ko te have; ki te taha o era atu katoa, ko te has.
He kau ano taku, I have a cow.
He pukapuka ano a maua, We have books.
Kei a Hemi te pouaka, James has the box.
Kei a wai te taura roa? Who has the long rope?
Kei a Hemi ranei taku hoiho ma? Has Jamesmy whiteliorse?
He hoiho kaha ranei tau? Have you a strong horse?
Kahore aku kau, I have no cow.
Kahore a maua pukapuka, We have no books.
Kahore i a Hemi te pouaka, James has not the box.
Kahore ranei i a Hemi taku hoiho ma? Has not James my white horse?
Kahore ranei au hoiho kaha? Have you no strong horse?

I mua. Past time.
He whare ano to raua i te raumati, They had a house in the summer.
He potae mangu ano o kou-tou, You had black hats.
Kahore he tatau o tenei whare inanahi, This house had no door yesterday.
I a Taxnati to pukapuka nui, Thomas had your large book.
Kaliore i a ia a taua puka-puka i te Wenerei, He had not our books of Wednesday.
He waka ranci to Hemi raua ko Tamati inanahi? Had James and Thomas canoe yesterday?
Kahore ranci o raua waka inanahi? Had they no canoe yesterday?
I a wai to taua hoiho i tera tau? Who had our horse last year?
Kahore ranei i a koutou te toki inanahi? Had not you the axe yesterday?
