It was the intention of the Author of this volume to make some extended 

remarks concerning the character, peculiarities and extent of the Hawaiian 

Language, by way of Preface or Introduction; but the want of physical strength, 

and especially of mental energy, has induced him to forego such an attempt and 

^^ be contented with a mere History of the manner in which this Dictionary has 

<3^ come into existence. The History of Hawaiian Lexicography is short. For 

""- the first effort the Author will quote from the preface of "A Vocabulary of 

^ Words in the Hawaiian Language " as follows : 

J " At a General Meeting of the Mission in June, 1834, it was voted, ' That Mr. Andrews 

^ prepare a Vocabulary of the Eaicaiian Language.^ At the same time a wish was earnestly 
~^ expressed and often repeated, that the work should not be delayed, but should be printed 
yj as soon as possible ; and it was fully understood and expected that the work would neces- 
sarily be an imperfect one. 
«|« " On receiving the above appointment from the Mission, the Compiler set about a review 
i of his materials for the compilation of a Vocabulary. The materials at hand and from 
which the following work has been compiled were the following : 

T '* 1. A vocabulary of words collected mostly, it is believed, by Mr. Loomis, formerly a 
■X member of this Mission. This was transcribed by the Compiler on his voyage from the 
V^i United States, and put to use in 1828. In using it, his object was to insert every new word 
-^ which he saw in print or understood in conversation or could obtain in any other way, 
besides correcting such mistakes as had been made in transcribing from the copy of Mr. 
Loomis. It was also a point with him to insert, if possible, the authority. Owing, however, 
to his ignorance of the Language at the time, many mistakes were made both in the orthog- 
raphy of the words and in the definitions. 

'* 2. A vocabulary of words arranged, it is believed, in part by Mr. Ely. at the request of 
the Mission, and finished by Mr. Bishop, A copy of this was received and transcribed by 
the Compiler in the summer of 1829. Every other page was left blank for the insertion of 
new words, and for any such other corrections or additions as should be important. In 
using this manuscript, the same method was taken as with the Vocabulary of Mr. Loomis. 
5^' New words and new definitions ot words before collected, increased the size of the book to 
a considerable extent. 

" On the slightest review of these irregular masses of materials, it was manifest that the 
labor of a thorough examination of every word, either by consulting intelligent Natives or 
by examining the usus loquendi from such manuscripts as could be obtained, or from the 
books that had been printed, must necessarily be a very protracted labor — the labor of 
some years at least. In consideration, therefore, of the urgent desire that something should 
be commenced in the form of a Vocabulary, and that a work having any pretensions to 
perfection must be slow in its progress, and protracted in its completion — and as the Com- 
piler was burdened with labors of another kind— he judged it best to reduce the materials

he had on hand to order in the best manner his time would permit. He has done so, with- 
out looking for any new words or extending the definitions of such as were collected, or 
consulting any native with regard to the propriety or impropriety of any definition. He 
feels it his duty, therefore, to forewarn those who may consult the following Vocabulary 
that they will often be disappointed. It is by no means a peifeci Vocabulary of the Hawaiian 

Such is the History of the Vocabulary. The printing was commenced at 
Honolulu in 1835, but finished at the press of the then High School at Lahaina- 
luna and published early in 1836. It consisted of 132 pages octavo, and con- 
tained a little over 6,000 words, and has been the principal Vocabulary in use 
until the present time. 


As soon as the aforementioned Vocabulary was published, the Author had 
several copies bound with blank leaves for making corrections and inserting new 
words, and continued his reading of Hawaiian documents both printed and 
written — giving the preference in all cases to such as were written by Chiefs to 
other Chiefs, and such as were written by one intelligent Hawaiian to another. 
As many of these written documents were never printed and were ephemeral in 
their nature, no reference could be made to them except by quoting a short sen- 
tence containing the word in question. No works of Foreign Authors — i. e., 
Foreigners writing Hawaiian — have been referred to except a very few school 
books, such as the Anahonua (Surveying), the Anatomia, a short treatise on 
Anatomy by Dr. Judd ; Hoikehonua (Geography), and a few others. The trans- 
lation of the Bible, however, from the great care exercised in translating — the 
frequent and thorough reviews by parties distinct from the original translators — 
and in all cases with Hawaiians sitting by and assisting, who were distinguished 
for intelligence and skill in their own language — is the principal exception. That 
has been considered and treated as a classic^ and numerous references have been 
made to it accordingly. It may be remarked, however, that as the Hawaiian Bible 
has been under a revision for two or three years past, and is now being printed 
in the United States, some of the references in the Dictionary may not apply to 
this new edition of the Bible. With these exceptions, the authorities for the defi- 
nition of words, so far as the Author is concerned, have been drawn from Manu- 
scripts written by Hawaiians or from printed pages originally written by such. 
The Author has ever sought after the best and purest Hawaiian he could obtain. 
As he has had no use for the low, filthy, vulgar language of ignorant and sensual 
depravity that must ever exist where there is no purifying principle to counter- 
act it, his book may appear deficient in low terms, too common even now. A 


good many, it is to be feared, have crept in unawares along with better company, 
but they have never been sought after. 

Besides two interleaved volumes filled up by the Author himself, he has been 
permitted to draw from the following sources : 

1st. From a Manuscript of Dr. Baldwin, of Lahaina. This manuscript was 
especially useful, not so much for definitions fully written out, as for its sugges- 
tions of what might be and what should be further investigated. In noting 
down the ideas that appeared to belong to the word under review, he appears to 
have had a shrewd Hawaiian at his elbow. Some of his definitions have been 
copied in entire, but the most are mixed up with those of the Author, making 
the article more full. Hence this general acknowledgment is all that can appear 
in the work. 

2d. Mr. Richards' book. This was a printed volume of the Vocabulary bound 
up like the Author's with blank leaves. In his Missionary work, and especially 
after he became a Teacher for the Chiefs, Mr. Richards obtained quite a stock 
of new words ; but it is to be regretted that his engagements did not allow him 
time to define them well. He frequently obtained a new word, but instead of 
giving a radical definition, merely mentioned that the Princess or Hoapili or 
some other Chief used the word, apparently meaning so and so, leaving the 
Author to find out as best he could the real meaning of the word. It was, 
however, of considerable help to the Author. 

3d. The volume of Rev. A. Bishop has also rendered assistance to the Author. 
Having a blank interleaved book, he corrected or improved many definitions of 
the printed Vocabulary, and also added upwards of two hundred new words. 

4th. The Author is also indebted to Dr. Judd in the same way: i. e., by 
allowing the Author the use of his interleaved Vocabulary. Besides his work 
on Anatomy into which he introduced the Hawaiian names of the bones, muscles 
and ligaments of the human system, he has collected in his Vocabulary a good 
number of words belonging to the colloquial department. 

5th. The Vocabulary of S. M. Kamakau. This w^as designed to be a vocab- 
ulary of Hawaiian v(rords with Hawaiian definitions. This work was com- 
menced and carried on by Mr. Kamakau through the instigation, i^ not the ex- 
pense of the Rev. J. S. Emerson while Professor at the Seminary of Lahaina- 
luna. Its value as a vocabulary is diminished, not for want of information in 
the writer, but for want of skill in making definitions. Instead of giving a defi- 
nition in other words, he merely added the synonyms of the word in question. 
The work, however, was of value to the Author, for these synonyms increased 
the number of words which finally found their way into the Dictionary. For 
all these helps, the Author desires to make due acknowledgment. 


Still there has been ample room for the exercise of the Author's own Judg- 
ment. The different departments in which he has been called to act, as that of 
a Missionary, a Teacher in the Seminary at Lahainalana, a Magistrate in the 
difl^erent Courts of the Kingdom and Secretary of the Privy Council, in all which 
the Hawaiian Language was used, have brought before him a great variety of 
forms of speech, and perhaps also, a greater variety of the senses in which many 
words are used than could have been obtained had he been confined to any one 
department. But after all, as he reviews his Dictionary, he feels that he has 
nothing to boast of. The deficiencies are still great. Much will remain for the 
Author's successors to do before the genius, extent and peculiarities of the 
Hawaiian Language will be fully developed. 

There are several departments of the language the words of which are but 
feebly represented in this Dictionary. That which relates to the imaginative 
in the Kaaos or Legends of different classes, — that which relates to what may 
be termed their philosophical views, i. e., their mode of accounting for natural 
phenomena, as the creation of their own islands, — the Origin of their Keligious 
rites, — and especially the power of imagination displayed in their Meles and the 
consequent richness of their language for expressing the nicest shades of love^ 
of hatred, of jealousy and revenge, and the language employed by the priests 
when drawing on their gods for assistance, are but partially presented in the 
definitions of this Dictionary. The Kaao of Laieikawai is almost the only spec- 
imen of that species of language which has been laid before the public. Many 
fine specimens have been printed in the Hawaiian periodicals, but are neither 
seen nor regarded by the foreign community. Volumes more of the same qual- 
ity as Laieikawai might be collected and printed and whose moral influence 
would be no worse on Hawaiian minds than the famous Scott's Novels are on 
English readers. The study of these Kaaos would demonstrate that the Hawai- 
ians possessed a language not only adapted to their former necessities, but capa- 
ble of being used in introducing the arts of civilized society, and especially of 
pure morals, of law and the religion of the Bible. 

The number of words in this Dictionary is about 15,500. The Author would 
here state that four-fifths of the work were completed before he had any intima- 
tion that it would ever be printed. It was written solely for his own amuse- 
ment and information, and preparatory to a more full investigation of those 
departments of the language above mentioned. He has been desirous for many 
years of going more fully into the study of Hawaiian poetry, and as a prepara- 
tion to it he was induced to collect specimens of the language of common life; 
hence the origin of this Dictionary. An appropriation of money for a Dictionary 
passed by the Legislature of 1860 without his knowledge, was the first intima- 


tion the Author had that such a work was desired by the Foreign community 
on the Islands. 

Much praise is due to the Managers of the Office of the Advertiser for the 
correctness of the printing. Seldom is a book of this size printed with so few 
typographical errors. The public will also feel indebted to Professor Alexander 
for assiduous attention not only in one reading of each proof sheet, but in sug- 
gesting improvements in the language of definitions. The work is now sub- 
mitted to a candid public. The Author hopes and prays that as God has spared 
his life to bring it to a close, he will in some way make it useful to the increase 
of intelligence in this Hawaiian Kingdom. 

Honolulu, April, 1865. 




The Reader will notice that the Order of words in the Dictionary does not 
follow the order of letters in the English Alphabet, but they follow the order in 
which they stand in the Hawaiian ^r^^ books for children, viz. : 1st, the vowels; 
2d, the Hawaiian consonants, and 3d, such foreign consonants as have been in- 
troduced in connection with foreign words. (See the Alphabet below.) 

In arranging the definitions, where there are several attached to a word, the 
Author has endeavored first to ascertain, if possible, the radical idea of the word 
in its simplest form, and from that he has used his best judgment in arranging 
in the order of their sequence the various derived significations. How far he 
has succeeded must be left to the judgment of the Reader. 

The Reader of Hawaiian will notice that many words begin with the letters 
hoo. In looking in the Dictionary for such words, he may not find them ; thus, 
hoonaauao will not be found under the letter H. Throw oflf then the hoo and 
look for naauao, v., and there it will appear, and so of many others. 

The sounds of the vowels will appear in the Alphabet below, and in the same 
order as they stand in the Dictionary.

The Hawaiian is but a dialect of the great Polynesian language, which is 
spoken with extraordinary uniformity over all the numerous islands of the Pacific 
Ocean between New Zealand and Hawaii. Again, the Polynesian language is 
but one member of that wide-spread family of languages, known as the Malayo- 
Polynesian or Oceanic family, which extends from Madagascar to the Hawaiian 
Islands, and from New Zealand to Formosa. 

The Hawaiian dialect is peculiarly interesting to the philologist from its 
isolated position, being the most remote of the family from its primeval seat in 
South-Eastern Asia, and leading as it were the van while the Malagasy brings 
up the rear. We will first give a brief account of what has been done for these 
languages, chiefly by European scholars. 

The similarity of the Polynesian dialects to one another is so striking that it 
did not escape the notice of the first discoverers in this Ocean. Dr. Reinhold 
Forster, the celebrated naturalist of Captain Cook's second voyage, drew up a 
table containing 47 words taken from 11 Oceanic dialects, and the corresponding 
terms in Malay, Mexican, Peruvian and Chilian. From this table he inferred 
that the Polynesian languages afford many analogies with the Malay, while 
they present no point of contact with the American languages. After him Mr. 
Anderson, in a comparative table, which was published at the end of Cook's 
third voyage, drew attention to the striking resemblance of the Polynesian 
numerals to those of the Malay archipelago and Madagascar. 

According to Max Muller, it was the Abbe Lorenzo Hervas who first made 
what he calls "one of the most brilliant discoveries in the histor\^ of the science 
of language, the establishment of the Malay and Polynesian family of speech, 
extending from the Island of Madagascar over 208 degrees of longitude to Easter 
Island," &c. From what has been said, however, it is evident that the credit 
of this discovery is really due to Forster and Anderson. Hervas was a Spanish 
Jesuit, who spent several years as a missionary in South America, where his 
attention was drawn to the comparative study of languages. After his return 
to Europe, he lived chiefly at Rome, where his correspondence with Jesuit mis- 
sionaries in all parts of the world gave him great assistance in his philological re- 
searches. In his "Catalogue of Languages," published in the year 1800. he clearly 
stated this relationship, which it was reserved for a Humboldt to demonstrate. 

A few years later William Marsden, who was the first to investigate with 


accuracy the history of the East Indian Archipelago, arrived independently at 
the same conclusions. He considered all the insular nations as colonies from 
the Malays, whose original home was the Island of Sumatra, and their common 
speech he termed the Great Polynesian. 

John Crawford, in his great work on the East Indian Archipelago, published 
in 1820, in which he gave a valuable comparative vocabulary, advanced a very 
different theory, w^hich has occasioned a great deal of discussion, and is not 
without its advocates even at the present day. He supposed that the basis of 
each barbarous language was originally distinct, each tribe being a distinct race, 
and properly indigenous. The common words in each dialect he supposed to 
have been derived from a foreign language, which he calls the Great Polynesian, 
and which was spread, as he imagined, by a more civilized people, through 
conquest and commercial intercourse, over the w^hole Archipelago. On this 
subject we briefly remark that his theory affords no explanation of the dispersion 
of the Polynesian race over the islands of the Pacific Ocean. Besides we have 
good reason to believe that whatever superiority in civilization is enjoyed by the 
East Indian islanders, was derived by them from Continental India, long after 
the dispersion of the insular races from their common center, and not from his 
imaginary Great Polynesian. Again, the words which are common to all these 
languages are such as are least likely to have been borrowed by one race from 
another, as the pronouns, the numerals, the names of family relations, of parts 
of the body, of the great objects of nature, and all the simplest ideas of every- 
day life. The Saxons, for example, learned to use many Norman-French words, 
but most of their household words remained Saxon. So did their numerals, so 
did their pronouns, and so in the highest degree did their grammar. 

Dumont d'Urville's report on the Philology of the French Exploring Expedi- 
tion, during the years 1825-1829, published in 1833, reflects great credit on its 
author. Besides other valuable materials, it contains a comparative vocabulary 
of seven Oceanic languages, comprising over eight hundred words in the Mada- 
gascar, New Zealand, Tongan, Tahitian, Hawaiian and Malay languages. 

In the able essay which accompanied it, he drew attention to the fact that a 
class of words common to the Malagasy and the Polynesian are wanting in the 
Malay; which confirmed, as he justly thought, Forster's opinion that "all these 
languages were derived from one very ancient tongue, now lost," which held 
towards them all the relation of a common parent, the Polynesian having re- 
mained nearest to the original type, while the Malay has been greatly modified 
by the influence of the Sanscrit, and the Malagasy by the African and Arabic 
languages. M. d'Urville then goes on to advance an ingenious hypothesis, 
which, however, will not stand the test of examination, that a continent like 
Australia, or at least an archipelago, once occupied part of Polynesia, inhabited 


by a people of whom the Polynesian tribes are but the remnant that have sur- 
vived some great convulsion of the globe. In that case the Malays would have 
been but colonists from the supposed Polynesian continent, who had followed 
the general course of the trade winds. 

The earliest really scientific analysis of the structure of a Polynesian language, 
with which we are acquainted, is the work on the Hawaiian language published 
at Berlin in 1837, by Adalbert von Chamisso, the poet, who had been the natu- 
ralist of the Russian Exploring Expedition, under Kotzebue, in the years 1815 
to 1818. It is a work of rare ability, considering the meagre materials which 
the author had at his command. In the year 1838 appeared a work by Baron 
William von Humboldt, the distinguished statesman and scholar, which marked 
a new era in the history of the science of language, and which first fixed on an 
impregnable basis the relationship of the Malayo-Polynesian languages. This 
great work " On the Kawi Language in the Island of Java," which was edited' 
after the author's death by his friend and assistant, M. Buschmann, has ever 
since been regarded as a model and masterpiece of philological research. In 
the words of Professor De Vere, "the Kawi served him as a canvas on which to 
weave those truths and that wisdom, which have placed his name in universal 
comparative philology by the side of that of Leibnitz." 

In this work, which occupies three quarto volumes, he first lays down the 
fundamental principles which govern the development of language, and shows 
the influence of the structure of language on the intellectual development of 
races. JSe then institutes a most minute and searching examination of the nine 
principal languages of the Malay stock, viz.: the Malagasy, Malay, Javanese, 
Bughis, Tagala, New Zealand, Tongan, Tahitian and Hawaiian, analyzing the 
structure of their roots, and investigating the laws of derivation and euphony, 
in accordance with which the common stock of words is modified in each dia- 
lect. He next proceeds to make a most careful and elaborate analysis of the 
grammatical structure, the particles and formatives of each language, after which 
he makes a comparison of the numerals, and of 131 primitive words in all the 
nine languages mentioned above. The result of this extensive and laborious 
analysis is to prove that there is not only a fundamental and close affinity be- 
tween these languages in respect to their vocabulary, but that their construction 
is so similar that they may be considered as belonging to one and the same 
grammatical system, and pervaded by the same modes of thought. Humboldt 
also showe^ that the Tagala, the leading language of the Philippine Islands, is 
by far the richest and most perfect of these languages, and that it may even be 
considered as the type of the family. "It possesses," he said, "all the forms 
collectively of which particular ones are found singly in other dialects ; and it 
has preserved them all with very trifling exceptions unbroken, and in entire har- 
mony and symmetry. * * * Jt was necessary, in order to display the high- 


est perfection of which the organism of this stock of languages is capable, to 
exhibit the system of verbs in the Tagala." 

The languages of the Oceanic region have been divided into six great groups: 
1st, the Polynesian ; 2d, the Micronesian ; 3d, the Melanesian or Papuan ; 4th, 
the Australian ; 5th, the Malaysian, and 6th, the Malagasy, as the language of 
Madagascar is called. In regard to these different groups our limits will not 
allow us to go into any details. Suffice it to say of the Australians that their 
languages appear to be radically distinct from the Malayo-Polynesian family, 
though they have left some traces of former contact on the dialects of the small 
islands ^^est of New Guinea. The Melanesian or Papuan languages present 
but very slight points of resemblance to the Malay or Polynesian, and differ 
greatly among themselves. If, as is generally supposed, the black race were the 
first settlers in the Pacific, the wave of immigration which peopled Polynesia 
must have swept around them to the north, and at a later period the Microne- 
sians may have moved in and closed up the rear. 

Of the languages of Malaysia, those of the Moluccas approach the nearest to 
Polynesian. Those islands then may be considered as the probable starting 
point of the ancient Polynesian emigrants. The languages of Micronesia unmis- 
takably belong to the great Malay family, and in their grammatical structure 
resemble the East Indian languages more than the Polynesian. 

The remarkable fact that the language of Madagascar belongs to this great 
family was first established by William Humboldt in his great work on the 
Kawi language. The Malagasy has no resemblance to the South African lan- 
guages. In its grammatical structure it approaches nearest to the Tagala, but 
it contains several Polynesian words which are wanting in the intervening Malay 
languages. The first ten numerals in Malagasy are " Rec or isa, rua, telu, efat, 
dimi, enim, fitu, valu, sivi, fulu." In Malay they are " Satu, dua, tiga, ampat, 
lima, anam, tujuh, delapan or walu, sambilan, sa-puluh." The original Poly- 
nesian forms are " Tasi, lua, tolu, fa, lima, ono, fitu, valu, siwa, fulu." Com- 
pare the Malagasy word for " heaven," langits, with the Malay langit, the Poly- 
nesian langi or la^ii ; the Malagasy word 7ii/i, a "tooth," with the Polynesian 
nifo or ?iiho ; the Malagasy uvi, a " yam," with the Polynesian i/Ji or 7ihL In- 
deed some words, such as mate, " dead," «fec., are found in the same identical 
forms throughout this whole circle of languages. Many other examples might 
be given if they were needed to illustrate the connection of these languages. 

The Polynesian language is, as has been before remarked, an extremely 
ancient and primitive member of the great Malay family. 

It was observed by Humboldt that the introduction of Sanscrit words into the 
Javanese and Malay must have been centuries before the Christian era, and that 
the separation between the different branches of the Malay family must have 


taken place at a still earlier period. It has also been seen that the internal 
structure of the Polynesian language indicates its high antiquity. It was the 
belief of William Humboldt that the Polynesians exhibit the original state of 
civilization of the Malay race, when they first settled in the Indian Archipelago, 
and before they had been changed by foreign influence. The unity of the Poly- 
nesian dialects is still an astonishing fact. Tribes like the Hawaiians and New 
Zealanders, separated from each other by one-fourth of the circumference of the 
globe in space, and thousands of years in time, speak dialects of one language, 
and have the same customs and mythology. The laws of euphony in the sev- 
eral dialects which regulate the changes of consonants are so fixed and uniform, 
that a New Zealand or Samoan word being given, we can generally tell with 
certainty what its form will be in each of the other dialects. The conclusion 
that the course of migration in the Pacific was from west to east might be de- 
duced from an examination of the comparative grammar and vocabularies of the 
different dialects. We find in those of the western groups many forms which 
are entirely wanting in the eastern dialects, while others which are complete in 
the former are found in the latter defective or perverted from what was evidently 
their original meaning. 

The New Zealand dialect, on the whole, is the most primitive and entire in 
its forms. The Hawaiians, Marquesans and Tahitians form a closely related 
group by themselves. For example, the Marquesan cou'/erts are using Hawai- 
ian books, and the people of the Austral Islands read the Tahitian Bible. 

Although, in a scientific point of view, the Hawaiian may seem lo be one of 
the most attenuated and degenerate dialects of this family, we believe it to be 
practically one of the most copious and expressive, as well as the richest in 
native traditional history and poetry. 

The Samoan and Tongan languages have probably been modified, by a later 
importation from the East Indies. They contain several Malay words which 
are wanting in the eastern dialects. The Tongan in particular has several 
Feejee traits not found elsewhere in Polynesia. 

The Feejee or Viti seems to form the transition between Polynesian and 
Papuan, where the two streams of colonization met and mingled. The princi- 
ples of its grammar and one-fifth of its words are Polynesian. Among the re- 
maining four-fifths are several pure Malay words, such as viila, the moon, lako, 
to go, masima, salt, &c., while many of its peculiar words are also found in the 
Kingsmill Group, and some, e. g. dra, blood, kana, to eat, tina, mother, can even 
be traced into Micronesia. The Kingsmill Group, as far as its language is con- 
cerned, has a closer connection with Polynesia than Micronesia, though consid- 
erably modified by mixture with the latter as well as with the black race. To- 


gether with the Feejee and Kotuman it retains some characteristics of Eastern 
Malaysia, particularly of Aru-Sambawa, and even some traces of Australian. 
The native traditions show that they are a mixed race sprung from Samoan and 
Micronesian colonists. 

At the south-east extremity of Polynesia the Pa'umotu or Dangerous Archi- 
pelago, presents a curious problem for the philologist. While the grammar and 
most of the vocabulary is Tahitian, the numerals and a large number of the 
most common words are utterly unlike every other Oceanic language with which 
we are acquainted, although Logan finds many of them " recognizable as Indo- 
nesian or Indian words." Their canoes and some of their manufactures are of 
the Micronesian pattern, though there is nothing in their language that points 
in that direction. 

A few words should be added on the peculiar genius and structure of the 
Polynesian Language in general, and of the Hawaiian dialect in particular. 

It is a law of all Polynesian languages that every word and syllable must end 
in a vowel, so that no two consonants are ever heard without a vowel sound be- 
tween them. Most of the radical words are dissyllables, and the accent is gen- 
erally on the penult. The Polynesian ear is as nice in marking the slightest 
variations of vowel sound as it is dull in distinguishing consonants. No Poly- 
nesian dialect, for instance, makes any distinction between h and j9, d and t, g 
and k, I and r, or v and w. Besides I is often sounded like d and t like k, which 
latter was unfortunately adopted in the written language of the Hawaiian Islands 
to represent the same element which is represented by t throughout the rest of 

As was said before, the laws which regulate the changes of consonants in the 
different dialects are remarkably uniform. In Hawaiian both / and s are changed 
into h, ng is softened into n, k at the beginning of a word is dropped, but in the 
middle of a word is represented by a peculiar guttural catch or break, and w is 
used for v, though the sound is properly intermediate between the two. 

The following table from Hale shows the number of consonants in each dia- 
lect, and the changes which they undergo in passing from one dialect to another. 
The guttural break, which takes the place of /i, is represented by an apostrophe.

The vowels undergo but few changes, and these chiefly in consequence of 
consonant changes. E. g. fetu^ a star, and fenua, land, in Hawaiian become 
hoku, and honua^ and the omission of k produces similar changes, so that meika, 
a banana, becomes mai'a, and meitaki, good, becomes maikaH. It will be ob- 
served that in consonant sounds the Hawaiian is one of the softest and most 
attenuated of the dialects, being surpassed in that respect only by the effeminate 
Marquesan. The following examples show the changes which words undergo 
in passing from one dialect to another.

The vocabulary of the Hawaiian is probably richer than that of most other 
Oceanic tongues. Its child-like and primitive character is shown by the absence 
of abstract words and general terms. As has been well observed by M. Gaussin, 
there are three classes of words, corresponding to as many different stages of 
language : 1st, those that express sensations, 2d, images, and 3d, abstract ideas. 
The Polynesian vocabulary was originally composed chiefly of words of the 
first two classes. As languages grow older, words acquire a figurative sense, 
and the original meaning is gradually forgotten. In English, for instance, how 
many are aware that tribulation originally meant threshing, respect, looking 
back, reveal to draw back a vail, affront to strike in the face, and insult to leap 
upon the body of a prostrate foe ? Now there were comparatively few Hawai- 
ian words that had gone through this process. 

Not only are names wanting for the more general abstractions, such as space, 
nature, fate, &c., but there are very few generic terms. For example there is 
no generic term for animal, expressing the whole class of living creatures, or for 
insects or for colors. At the same time it abounds in specific names and in nice 

The first step in the formation of language was no doubt the employment of 
particular names to denote individual objects. It was only afterwards by a pro- 
cess of abstraction that these individual objects were classified by those qualities 
which are common to a number of them. It is from the specific that we ascend 
to the general. The same principle applies to verbs or names of actions as well 
as to nouns. The savage has in his mind a picture of the whole action, and 
does not always abstract or separate the principal circumstance from the acces- 
sory details. This is true of uncultivated languages in general, and is not pecu- 
liar to Hawaiian. Thus the Javanese has ten words to express as many different 


modes of standing, and twenty of sitting. The Feejee has sixteen words mean- 
ing to strike, and eight to wash, " according as it affects the tiead, face, hands, 
feet or body of an individual, or his clothes, dishes or floor." So in Hawaiian 
everything that relates to their every-day life or to the natural objects with 
which they were conversant is expressed with a vivacity, a minuteness and 
nicety of coloring which cannot be reproduced in a foreign tongue. Thus the 
Hawaiian was very rich in terms for every variety of clouds. It has names for 
every species of plant on the mountains or fish in the sea, and is peculiarly copi- 
ous in terms relating to the ocean, the surf and waves. The ancient Hawaiians 
were evidently close observers of nature. For whatever belonged to their reli- 
gion, their wars, their domestic life, their handicrafts or their amusements, their 
vocabulary was most copious and minute. Almost every stick in a native house 
had its appropriate name. Hence it abounds in synonyms, which, however, are 
such only in appearance, and on which a volume might be v^Titten. E. g. To 
be broken as a string is moku, to be broken as a dish naha, as a stick haki, to 
fall from an upright to a horizontal position as a wall is hina^ to fall from a 
height through the air haule; auamo means to carry on the shoulder with a 
stick, kaHka'i in the hands. Mi as a child in the arms, koi on a stick between two 
men, haawe on the back, hali to carry in general, &c. 

Besides the language of every day life, there Avas a style appropriate to ora- 
tory, and another to religion and poetry. This latter is known to but few na- 
tives of the present generation, and is fast disappearing. The same thing is 
taking place in New Zealand and Tahiti. 

The above mentioned characteristics make it a pictorial and expressive lan- 
guage. It still has the freshness of childhood. Its words are pictures rather 
than colorless and abstract symbols of ideas, and are redolent of the mountain, 
the forest and the surf. It was completely adapted to the country and the circle 
of ideas in which the people lived, and bore no trace of a higher civilization or 
of foreiofn influence. Far be it from us however to deny its capability for higher 
development. Its characteristics are such as belong to all languages in a certain 
stage of growth. It has been and is successfully used to express the abstrac- 
tions of mathematics, of English law, and of theology. 

We regret that our limits forbid our adding any remarks on the grammatical 
structure of the Polynesian languages. 


Honolulu, April, 1865. 




4 in Hawaiian, as in most other ]an- 
*"^) gua«,'es, in the first k'tter of the alpha- 
bet ; " because, if pronounced open as a in 
father, it is the simplest and easiest of all 
sounds." Encyc.Amer. Its sound, in Ha- 
waiian, is generally that of a in father, ask. 
pant. &c. ; but it has, sometimes, when 
standing before the consonants k, I, m. n. 
&nd p, a short sound, somewhat resembling 
the short u, as in nudter, but not so short. 
TbuspaAa. malimaU, lama, inana,napenape. 
are pronounced somewhat as we should 
pronounce pukka. muUymully, Zu?nma, 
munna. imppynvppy, &c. ; reference being 
had only to the first vowel of each word. 
It has also in a few words, a sound nearly 
resembling (but not so strong) that of au 
or OAO in English ; as iwaho, mawaho, pro- 
nounced somewhat as iwauho, mawauho. 
To foreigners who merely read the lan- 
guage, the common pronunciation of a as 
in father is near enough for all practical 
purposes ; b\it to those who wish to speak 
it, the mouth of a Hawaiian is the best 
A is used for various parts of speech, 

and, of course, has various significations. 
A, adv. When ; then ; there ; until. 
With verbs in a narrative tense, it signifies 
when, and when, &c. ; as, a hiki mai ia, 
when he arrived. With ml it signifies a 
•designation of place, as mai a nri aku, from 
J]ere"(this place) onward. Until, as noho 
•oia malaila a make, he lived there tintU 
he died. N(»te. — A nei is often written as 
one word, and then it signifies A^rf^, present 
place. A when pronounced with a pro- 
tracted sound, signifies a protracted pe- 
riod of time, or distance, or a long contin- 
ued action ; as,holo ae la ia a — (ihiki i ka 
aina kahiki, he sailed a long time (or a 
long distance) Mritil he reached a foreign 

A, conj. And ; and then ; and when. 
When it connects verbs, it usually stands 
by itself; as, holo ka waa. a komo iho, 
the canoe sailed and sank. When it cou- 


nects nouns, it is usually joined with me; 
as, haawi mai oia i ka ai a taf ke kajia, he 
furnished food and clothing. A with >/i€ 
signifies and. and also, besides, together 
with, Ac. When emphatic, it is merely a 
disjunctive. Lank. 6:;'.!>. Note. — In nar- 
ration, it frequently stan«ls at the begin- 
ning of sentences or paragraphs, and 
merely refers to what has been said, with- 
out any very close connection with it. In 
many cases, it is apparently euphonic, or 
seems to answer no purpose, except as a 
jireparatory sound to somet'^ing that may 
follow ; as. akahi no oukou a hele i keia 
ala. never before have you passed this 
road. Gram. § 166.

Tj^ the second letter of the Hawaiian

tongue, elelo ; mahana, Yrarm, mehana. In

E, prep. By. As a preposition, it is 
mostly used after passive verbs to express 
the agent ; as, ua ahewaia oia e ke alii, he 
was condemned hy the chief. Many verbs 
have no sign of a passive voice, the con- 
struction of the sentence alone determines 
it, and the e thus situated helps determine 
the point as much as anything ; nui loa hoi 
ka poe daimonio i mahiki aku e ia. Gram. 
§ 105, 11. 

E standing before nouns marks the aui- 
hea or vocative case ; it also often follows 
the same case ; as, e ka lani e, chief. 
Gram. § 105, 8. 

E is used also to call or invite atten- 
tion to what one is about to say ; a con- 

traction, perhaps of ea. Note. — E is mostly 
used at the beginning of an address, and 
ea in the middle, or if a single sentence, 
only at the end. 

E following either active, passive or 
neuter verbs signifies before hand, and 
serves to mark a kind of second future 
tense of the verb ; as, lohe e an, I heard 
before ; hiki e mai oia. he had arrived ^rs^. 
Gram. § 190, 2d. 

E is the sign of the imperative mood, 
and generally of the infinitive also, though 
after hiki and pono the e of the infinitive is 
changed into ke. G^-am. § 191 and 193. E 
is also the sign of the future tense. Gram. 
§ 190, 1.

contraction for ae.

tive mood instead of e ; as, o hele oe, go 
thou, instead of e hele oe ; o hoi oukou i na

case, for the sake of euphony, the o may 
take a u after it ; as, ou hoi olua, return

Hoo. This word is the causative prefix 
to verbs ; as, malic, to shade, hoomalu. to 
cause a shade, to overshadow ; pono. good, 
right, hoopono, to correct, to make right ; 
akea, to be broad, hooakea or hoakea, to 
cause to be broad, i. e., to extend, enlarge, 
etc. See Gram. § 33 and § 212, and the 
conjugations 7, 8, 11, 12, 15 and 16. 

This prefix, though originally adapted to 
the verb, continues its influence though the 
verb with its causative prefix becomes a 
noun, adjective or adverb. Ua hele oia i 
ka hoike, he has gone to the ejehibition; he 
kanaka hoopnnipuni. a man causiixg decep- 
tion, i. e.. a deceitful man ; olelo hooino iho 
la, he spoke causing reproach, i. e., he spoke 
reproachfully. Before words whose first 
letter is a vowel, the last o of the hoo fre- 
quently coalesces with the vowel of the 
word following, particularly before a. e and 
o; as, hoano for hooano; hook for hooole, 
&c. (See the preceding pages from the 
word hoaa to hoo.) Some words have haa 
for their causative prefix instead of hoo j 
as, haaheo for hooheo (from heo, pride), to 
be haughty. This foinn seems to come from 
the Tahitian dialect. A few words take 
both forms for their causative, as hoonui 
and haanui, from nui, to be large. Hoaioi, 




to give, is used for hooavoi, but Jiaawi is 
used oftener than either. 

Strictly speaking, hoo in a Dictionary 
should not begin a verb, but verbs having 
this prefix should be set in their places, 
and their meanings be modified by the hoo 
as it occurs ; as, ike, to know, &c., hoo. or 
ho., to cause to know, to show, to exhibit ; 
ikeia, to be known, hoo., to be made known, 
to be shown ; ikeike, to know clearly, hoo., 
to make known clearly or frequently, &c.; 
but a large class of words have been found 
beginning with the causative prefix hoo, 
whose roots are not known or have not 
come to light, or are out of use. It is true, 
such a root might be assumed as being in 
existence or having once existed, as Greek 
Lexicographers often assume an obsolete 
theme ; but there would be much danger 
in Hawaiian of getting the wrong word : 
hence, we know not where to put such roots 
unless we retain the hoo for the beginning 
of the word. This occasions some repeti- 
tion, but it is hoped it will not be a serious 
inconvenience. The following words be- 
ginning with hoo are such as were first 
found in that form and whose root was not 
known. They are now retained in that form 
because many are other parts of speech 
than verbs. Where the words beginning 
with hoo have been defined utider their 
roots, the definitions here will be very short
