1. (loan) (noun) time - especially for time related to hours and minutes, etc. Although 'he aha te tāima?' is common in modern Māori to ask what the time is, 'kua aha te tāima?' and 'kei te aha te tāima?' are preferred by native speakers.
Kua aha te tāima? Paku nei te hipa atu i te waru. / What's the time? A little after eight.
