  • HĀLAU/`OHANA
    • Hālau and `ohana helped to preserve the language by maintaining traditions from generation to generation
  • HAWAIIAN LANGUAGE TODAY
    • Hawaiian language revitalization movement
    • 425,000 Native Hawaiians
      • Of that, approximately 10% claim to speak Hawaiian
      • Approximately 2% claim to be mānaleo or native speakers
  • KA PĪ`ĀPĀ
    • 5 vowels:
    • A E I O U
    • 8 consonants:
    • H K L M N P W ʻ
    • He Ke La Mu Nu Pi We ʻokina
  • ʻOKINA
    • The `okina is a glottal stop. In other words, it cuts or separates vowel sounds.
    • ʻ is the appropriate mark for the ʻokina (looks like an open-ended quote). ’ (an apostrophe) is not acceptable as it serves a different function.
    • Listen to the difference in the following pairs of words:
      • hao haʻo
      • koe koʻe
      • kou koʻu
      • mai maʻi
  • KAHAKŌ
    • The kahakō (-) elongates the vowel over which it is placed
    • Listen to the difference in the following pairs of words:
      • uliuli `ulī`ulī
      • maka māka
      • kala kālā
  • IMPORTANCE OF ʻOKINA AND KAHAKŌ
    • Omission or unnecessary inclusion of ʻokina and/or kahakō can drastically change the meaning of a word as in the following examples:
      • pau completed; done; finished
      • paʻu soot
      • paʻū moist; damp
      • pā’ū skirt
      • kala a type of fish
      • kālā money
      • ka lā the sun
    • I ka ʻōlelo nō ke ola,
    • I ka ʻōlelo nō ka make
    • Life is in speech;
    • death is in speech
  •
