No one wants to sound like a malihini from the mainland, right? Culture IS language, afterall...
Approximately one hundred-sixty place and street names located on the main island of O'ahu were chosen for their difficulty or importance and are presented along with proper Hawaiian pronunciation and definitions. The pronunciation is digital audio recorded from Hawaiian master chanter and National treasure, Ka‘upena Wong.
The seven land districts on the island of O‘ahu: Kona, Ko‘olaupoko, Ko‘olauloa, Wahiawa, Waialua, Wai‘anae, and 'Ewa are emphasized, although many of the street and place names occur on the Hawai'i Neighbor Islands also. Proper pronunciation of these place names just might be the lead to confidence in pronouncing place names on other islands.
