First Lessons in Maori

§ 77: Whosoever

§ 77: Whosoever.

—There is no equivalent in Maori for the word “whosoever”; it must therefore always be resolved into “the man who,” “the persons who,” “if any man,” etc., but not into “he who,” or “those who.”

  • Te tangata he patu tana, whoever has a weapon (the man who, etc.).

  • Nga tangata e matau ana ki te whakairo rakau, whosoever knows how to carve wood (the men who, etc.).
