Three new words in Maori

Well, more than three. This is from a nineteenth century Maori phrasebook:

Cards are the order of the day
 He kaari tonu te mahi i ngarā katoa

By a railway collision in America three persons were killed and thirtytwo were injured
 He tùtùkitanga i te rerewe i Amerika no nga kareti, kua tokotoru nga tangata i mate rawa; e toru tekau ma rua i mate kino, engari kihai i mate rawa

Fifty persons were killed by a dreadful colliery explosion
 E rima tekau nga tangata i mate rawa i te pahutanga o te au, i ka i te ahi i roto i tetahi rua keringa waro

The plague has appeared in Auckland
 Kuo puta te mate uruta ki Akarana

It is said that Parliament will meet on the 15th of June
 E ki ana kei te tekau ma rima o ngarā o Hune te hui ai te Paramete

Famine is raging in some parts of America; the people being actually reduced to eat roots
 Kua ngau te hiakai ki etahi o nga whenua o Amerika, kai noa te tangata ki te tarutaru
