Can this mean 'ow' too? Just kinda sounds like 'ow' or 'aua' in German.

Keali'i Reichel, Uncle Wille K, Israel Kamakawiwoole, Na Wai Eha, Raiatea Helm, Gabby Pahinui are all musicians/bands that play Hawaiian music inōlelo Hawai`i. Haunani-Kay Trask, Light In the Crevice Never Seen, Lost Kingdom:Hawaii's Last Queen, the sugar kings and America's First Imperial Adventure by Julia Flynn Siler are great places to start reading, the first book being poetry by a Native Hawaiian woman and Hawaiian rights activist

Theres no pronunciation for this, how would this sound?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Keanu43

Almost like ow-e(as in E hele or E lei) but the au(ow) sound is with a more closed mouth sounding, hard to explain but helps to try to prounce the au with a closing mouth to a lip pucker

ow-ā. Ow-like in plow

Auē is also used to express wonder, fear, scorn, pity, affection, to groan, moan, grieve, bewail. Auē is often used in mourning oli(chants) and sounds like wailing, a deep sob from inside
