Isn't a taiaha a spear?[edit]

Why is a taiaha not described as a spear? I've looked into this and a lot of cultural sites describe it as a spear-like weapon, or mistaken to be a spear. However, in every way the taiaha meets the definition of a spear, having a haft and a pointed end. A spear is a generic word for a type of weapon, and it seems that a taiaha is a specific type of spear. So why not call it that way? (talk) 01:47, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Except that it's not a "haft", it's a long flat "blade", and is used much more like a staff or katana than a spear. Snori (talk) 12:20, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
