    Re: A Hawaiian Language Thread?

    Captain Cook and his recorders were not fluent in Hawaiian. Moreover, at the time, there was no written language, so the alphabet inventories would differ from recorder to recorder. What you would...

    Re: [UH Warrior] This is Haka, err Ha'a Nation

    This brings to mind something I find quite interesting. A couple of weeks ago, I was reading Kauakukalahale, http://starbulletin.com/2007/09/02/news/kauakukalahale.html, and it said that in a recent...

    Like quite a few people have already mentioned, the above is a good resource for Hawaiian fonts. Now, I've upgraded to Windows Vista, though, so I'm not sure...

    I originally started working on the Hawaiian language articles on the Wiki at Unilang over a year ago in an attempt to improve what had already been written there. For example, when I first got...

    (continued)

    In order to show that what is possessed is plural, the plural marker mau is placed directly after the possessor. (Note that when some words are made plural, the third to the last...

    Aloha kāua e Akrauth,

    I understand how you feel. I, too, am a firm believer that the Hawaiian language should be taken seriously by those who want to use it. :) Sometimes, if I come across...

    Instead of making a new Hawaiian language related thread for this, I decided to save the board some space and place this here. It's just for fun, of course :D.

    It would be A-class as well.
    Why did you go with mamo instead of keiki? Now it means "descendants of Lili'u." Are you claiming the students to be direct descendants of Hawaiian royalty? Not a good...

    Oh, yes. This is interesting. The name of the albulm is Nā Keiki o Kamehameha. Perhaps the O-class possessive is used here because the possessor is an inanimate organization. However, there is also a...
