I’m very happy to bring you volume 60 of Te Reo. It will be my last as Editor; I will hand over the role to Dr Andreea Calude (University of Waikato). I’m pleased to be able to pass over the journal when it is finally running on schedule, and I hope the fact that there is no longer a backlog will encourage you to consider Te Reo as a venue for your new papers. I’d like to thank everyone who has submitted a paper to the journal over the last three years, and five volumes, and also the many reviewers. I have been honoured to serve the New Zealand Linguistics community in this small way, and I thank Andreea for agreeing to take over the reins. Te Reo will be in safe hands.
