A Pocket Guide to the Hawaiian Language (Things Hawaiian) (Hawaiian and English Edition)
Once expected to be extinct by the end of the 20th century, the Hawaiian language has recently made a remarkable comeback. Beginning in the 1970s, a "renaissance" has allowed visitors to glimpse something of the richness of a culture and language that were once discouraged. For the first time in years, you now have a good chance of seeing authentic hula performances and hearing Hawaiian spoken and sung accurately. This Pocket Guide to Hawaiian will introduce you to the language and help you appreciate it. Book jacket.
