Early 21st century | Tūī
The tūī is now one of New Zealanders’ favourite garden birds and its name is changing again. In Māori, macrons indicate that the sound of a vowel is long. When tui is spoken and spelt correctly, both vowels are long and it is written as tūī. Tūī is now sometimes written like this in English too – this helps us pronounce its name.
