Hawaiian dictionary : Hawaiian-English, English-Hawaiian by Mary Kawena Pukui( Book )
31 editions published between 1971 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 1,401 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

We learn best to speak by speaking, whether it be our own language or another tongue, so the plan is to furnish the reader with a verbal equipment sufficient to enable him to converse accurately in Hawaiian with those who still use the language as their own. The equipment offered is, in addition to grammatical notes, a careful selection of five thousand of the most used and most useful English words, with their various equivalents as spoken by present-day Hawaiians among themselves. - Preface
