Wiki, a word from my home

I’m not sure how wikipedia decided on it’s name, but with “wiki” finding its way into the vocubulary I was sure it was originally a New Zealand Maori word. Sure enough it is.

wiki, v, to form circular ripples on the surface of the water

wiki, n, Sunday in Tainui dialect

wiki, n, week

Here’s the site I used to get the translation. <link>
