Pronunciation Key

 We will use 'ōlelo Hawai'i (the Hawaiian language) throughout our posts, in our educational PDFs and in our products. Here are some of the pronunciation basics: 

In 'ōlelo Hawai'i, the vowels a, e, i, o, u are pronounced "ah", "eh", "e", "oh", "ooh" respectively.

The 'okina (') is a glottal stop, denoting a pause between the letters.

The kahakō (indicated by a line over a vowel) is a macron, which lengthens and adds stress to the marked vowel.
