"Proper Pronunciations" Hawaiian Language Tip by RblWthACoz

Hawaiian Language, Oahu: 13 reviews and 9 photos

It might seem intimidating when you see a large Hawai'ian word with a mass of vowels and fewer letters. Just remember that every vowel is pronounced unless it is one of the following combinations:

ai - "eye"
au - "ow"
ei - "ay"

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
