Maori[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Proto-Polynesian *huru, from Proto-Oceanic *surup, from Proto-Malayo-Polynesian *surup (enter, penetrate).

Verb[edit]

uru (passive urua or uruhina)

  1. to enter, go in[1]
  2. to possess
  3. to enlist, enrol, join, be included

Etymology 2[edit]

From Proto-Polynesian *qulu, from Proto-Oceanic *qulu, from Proto-Malayo-Polynesian *qulu, from Proto-Austronesian *quluh (head).

Etymology 3[edit]

From Proto-Eastern Polynesian *uru (southwesterly wind)[2]; perhaps originally a semantic extension of Etymology 1.

No words for the cardinal directions can be unambiguously reconstructed for Proto-Polynesian, as there would be little use for them on the small Polynesian islands. However, on the much larger North Island (Te Ika-a-Māui) and South Island (Te Waipounamu) of New Zealand, the usefulness of such terminology led the Māori to adopt this word for "west".[3]

Noun[edit]

uru

  1. west[1]
