Excerpt from First Lessons in the Maori Language of New Zealand: With a Short Vocabulary
The vowels have each but one sound, though they may all vary in length in different words. When two stand together in a word, the first of the two is generally pronounced more strongly th... an the other. The doubling of a vowel amounts simply to a lengthening of it.
The consonants always stand singly, and every syllable ends with a vowel.
