The English discoverer of the element called it alumium, and later aluminum, while another apparently influential chemist thought that aluminium would be better because it sounded "more classical". Early on, even some individual chemists would commonly go back and forth in their writings. Eventually the two sides of the Atlantic drifted apart on it (yes, Canada says "um", not "ium").

So it's not a case of right way or wrong way. It's just the old saying - "England and the US: two nations divided by a common language"

Of the two dictionaries I looked at one has a strong American accent, the other has a strong British accent. I can't find one with a Kiwi accent :D
Unfortunately you most likely won't. Its rare to find our butchered version of English recorded. Maori on the other hand easy peasy.
But there isn't a conversion considering a Kotara was the only Maori armour which happened to be only a belt :D not quite the same lol
