Hawaiian

I tried to learn a little Hawaiian while in Kauai. The most interesting thing I've discovered so far about the language is that nouns are the same in both singular and plural. Instead, there are different forms of articles that convey the quantity of the associated noun.

  • Ke Honu - the sea turtle
  • Nā Honu - the sea turtles
  • Ke Pali - the cliff
  • Nā Pali - the cliffs

Hence the Nā Pali coast, you see.
