Two min, 34 seconds, first time through, and they frelling misspelled Hawai'i. One of the few things Hawaiians get wound up about, when they do get wound up, is proper spelling of the language... there is an 'ohana between the final two "i"'s, and it *does* change the pronunciation... it's "Hah-WAH-(glottal stop - little bitty pause)-ee", not "ha-WAI" (with the dipthong)...

Yes, I have a bit of a vested interest in such things. :)

I shall endeavor not to mis-spell it, lest there be any hawai'ians around.

*chuckle* the adjective form doesn't have an 'ohana. :)

My grandfather was in Pearl Harbor for 3 years before the attack, and then during (USS California) and he spoke Hawaiian... he taught us a bunch when we were little (I wish I remembered more!) but I remember he smacked me across the knuckles when I pronounced it "ha-WAI" the first time... never make THAT mistake again. :)
