This chapter first considers the characteristics of the segmental phonemes of New Zealand English (NZE), the consonants, and the vowels, and then of the suprasegmental features (such as intonation and rhythm). It also examines the ways in which the sound system of NZE has changed over the short time that English has been spoken in New Zealand, beginning by clarifying some of the terminology used.

Keywords:   New Zealand English, vowels, suprasegmental features, sound system
