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 concise, conveniently sized mini-book serves as a friendly introduction to the Hawaiian language, teaching the native alphabet, proper pronunciation, and commonly used words and phrases.
