Without question, this is the definitive grammar of the Hawaiian language. Indeed it is the first attempt at a comprehensive treatment of the subject since W.D. Alexander published his concise Short Synopsis of the Most Essential Points in Hawaiian Grammar in 1864. This grammar is intended as a companion to the Hawaiian Dictionary, by the same authors. The grammar was written with every student of the Hawaiian language in mind - from the casual interested layperson to the professional linguist and grammarian. Although it was obviously impossible to avoid technical terms, their use was kept to a minimum, and a glossary is included for those who need its help. Each point of grammar is illustrated with examples, many from Hawaiian-language literature.

Hawaii, the fiftieth state, is one of the world's most popular destinations for travel, boasting over 7 million visitors each year. The population is enormously proud of the state's ancestral heritage, a pride reflected in the ubiquity of cultural artefacts and traditions as well as native Hawaiian's status with English as one of the state's two official languages. This unique dictionary and phrasebook offers an excellent introduction to Hawaiian words and phrases, with sections devoted to basic greetings, food and drink, weather, and assorted cultural activities. It is an ideal companion for vacationers and others interested in traditional Hawaiian culture.
