Learn the Hawaiian way to say internet and also the local way to pronounce Hawai’i.
I read an article in the local paper, the Star Bulletin about how to infuse new technological concepts with Hawaiian meaning as a way of preserving the language. It makes total sense to me. Instead of just taking the English word and adding the foreign accent, translate the word!
Here is how to say “internet” in Hawaiian:
pÅ«naewele puni honua
It means “network around the world.”
You’ll have to watch the show to hear the local way of pronouncing “Hawai’i.” 🙂 It will come in handy for you to sound like a local when you vacation in the land of Aloha!
Counter to my show notes from yesterday, we did have a little makeup and wardrobe on the beach today, as we were filming an entry in the Network2.tv contest on “How do you watch internet TV?” Entries are due March 9 so you still have time to make a video submission.
