Hawaiian dictionary : Hawaiian-English, English-Hawaiian by Mary Kawena Pukui( Book )

34 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many years Hawaiian Dictionary has been the definitive and authoritative work on the Hawaiian language. Now this indispensable reference volume has been enlarged and completely revised. More than 3,000 new entries have been added to the Hawaiian-English section bringing the total number of entries to almost 30,000, and making it the largest and most complete of any Polynesian dictionary. Other additions and changes in this section include: a method of showing stress groups to facilitate pronunciation of Hawaiian words with more than three syllables; indication of parts of speech; current scientific names of plants; use of metric measurements; additional reconstructions; classical origins of loan words; and many added cross-references to enhance understanding of the numerous nuances of Hawaiian words. The English-Hawaiian section, a complement and supplement to the Hawaiian-English section, contains more than 12,500 entries and can serve as an index to hidden riches in the Hawaiian language. This new edition is more than a dictionary. Containing folklore, poetry, and ethnology, it will benefit Hawaiian studies for years to come. - Publisher

Na mele o Hawai'i nei = 101 Hawaiian songs by Samuel H Elbert( Book )

17 editions published between 1970 and 1978 in English and Hawaiian and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The songs in this collection of Hawaiian traditional and Christmas songs are postmissionary and owe their musical origin to missionary hymns dating from the mid-1850's to 1968. Nearly all are sung often today and are well known to Hawaiian singers. Many have not been translated before. Each song appears in Hawaiian and English, prefaced by brief notes on the cultural, historical, and linguistic points of interest. An introductory section explains the selection, classification, and arrangement; discusses the composers, the structure of the Hawaiian language and the poetic style, symbolism, and other aspects of the folk literature; and provides a general background for an appreciation of the work. A reference listing and composers index are included. (Amm)
