New Zealand English
New Zealand English (NZE) is a regional dialect of English.
Like Australian English, its closest dialectal relative, and from which it is, to a large extent, derived, it's relatively new. The first English-speaking settlers, Australian rather than British, arrived in 1792. This means that, apart from Falkland Islands English, New Zealand English is the newest variety of native speaker English.
