See full description
This quick and lively tour of the Hawaiian language begins by uncovering its fascinating and often controversial history. With the help of a clear and concise guide to pronunciation, learn the importance of the okina () and the kahako (macron) and how these marks affect the meaning as well as the pronunciation of words. Helpful vocabulary lists introduce words heard and seen most often in place names, in restaurants, and in Hawaiian songs--including those commonly mispronounced even by life-long Hawaii residents. The author also discusses ongoing efforts to preserve Hawaiian as a living language through language-teaching programs.
