Some languages don't have audio in every sentence. Maybe a couple of audios in every lesson.
Thanks. I was wondering why there was no audio so far. Have just started this course.
Really right you're actually really right
Finding all the common words between Māori and Hawai'ian is so cool. Āe!
What are some of the others? (Considering they're two of the Polynesian languages).
Hawaiian, Tahitian, Marquesan, Tuamotuan, Mangarevan, Maori of Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Maori of Rarotonga (Cook Islands), the language of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Samoan, Tongan, Tokelauan, Tuvaluan, Uvean, Futunan among others.
Looks like "Aye", has the same meaning
But how would that differ from 'ai, "food"? I wouldn't want to be asked a verbal yes or no question and reply "Food!"
'ae and 'ai are definitely two different words. The sounds for the e and i in Hawaiian are different. The e is a short e sound as in bet, and the i is like the ee in see.
Yea that's wondering me too, could someone explain that?
(the sounds should be blended together, not drawn out like the writing of it looks)
You can definitely hear the difference in the two words, but it takes some practice to hear it.
The reason why I knew this one is because I thought about a pirate
What does "ei" mean. Im so sorry guys.
Wehewehe.org has an answer: variation of eia, short for eia, here.
Ae is Yes. How do you pronounce Ae?
Ok I understand that there is no audio. But how do we pronounce this????
Hi I am new learning Hawaiian.
Can you follow me here on Duolingo so you can help me understand better Hawaiian??? Please!!!
This is ok its kinda hard but good i got throw it didint hear some words got board but over all that it is good
I did not hear any sound output on this lesson. On the other languages, spanish and Japanese, I can hear sound output on these types of lessons. Please check. I am using Google browser.
Swahili has the same problem. I think they're working on it.
not hearing the words being spoken - using Chrome
I believe sound hasnt been implemented into the course yet.
They are working on the audio because the Hawaiian is in Beta
Este alguien le entiende al hawaiana alguien que me ayude por fi gracias espero sus respuestas
This Hawaiian dialect sounds very similar to Rarotongan Maori. One of the main differences is the use of 'k' to replace 't'. I think the Niilau dialect is the closest to Rarotongan
