Finished Hawaiian course
I know that’s not a big accomplishment but I do have to say thank you for those who made the course. It’s a more interesting language than I gave it credit for. I’ve never had much interest in the more obscure languages like native languages of the US so I think it was mind opening to see that it’s just like any other and that I shouldn’t just ignore it by default.
Obviously I’m going to advocate that the course be greatly expanded in the near future as it is far to short to make you even remotely functional in th language.
Congratulations, perhaps you can add some additional viewpoints, observations, etc. on the course. For example, why was it more interesting? Otherwise, I can foresee these sort of posts receiving downvotes in the future. :)
There need to be more detailed grammar notes, particularly on word order in this VSO language. I could garner some principles quite quickly like spotting the imperative marker before a verb but in other areas I'm having to make assumptions, such as not conjugating verbs like in IE languages or whether any adverbs come before an initial verb.
I reckon however there's enough here for us to start plugging in new vocab learned elsewhere.
Apparently, I was writing my comment while you were writing yours. Thank you for the additional comment. :)
Thank you for expanding your post - your writing is fine. I've struggled all of my life with writing, which was one of the reasons I became active on the Forum - to practice my writing. Best wishes. :)
