When a young kiwi boy was asked by his mother to write down 10 words from the Maori language, the answers she got wren't exactly expected.
There were only four actual words from the language, before turning to popular slang.
'Kaka' and 'Aotearoa' were the last two actual words before terms like "cuz and "nek minnit" started appearing.
After the list was posted to social media, it went viral and people were commenting on it with things like "That's how Maori's talk man" and "Luckily he didn't know the names of the other 9 old school gangs."
