Decoding the "kay-weay eksent"

Being one of the younger countries, its understandable that New Zealand spoken English has taken on its its own unique dialect.  A conglomeration of accents including sprinklings of English, Irish, Scottish, Maori and dare I say it - Australian (probably because the first settlers to New Zealand other than the Maori were seal hunters "from across that ditch") and can make it hard for the untrained ear to decipher.
