Hawaiian Numbers

Since the Duolingo Hawaiian Team hasn't yet released a Numbers skill, I'll share the first 20 numbers and a little bit more. This information is very easily found online, but I'll just share it here. (my keyboard doesn't have an okina and i don't want to have to go through the process so i'll use apostrophes, and i also dont have the elongated vowels so ill put a hyphen after a vowel to indicate that. sorry if it's confusing.) :)

  • 1 - 'ekahi

  • 2 - 'elua

  • 3 - 'ekolu

  • 4 - 'eha-

  • 5 - 'elima

  • 6 - 'eono

  • 7 - 'ehiku

  • 8 - 'ewalu

  • 9 - 'eiwa

  • 10 - 'umi

  • 11 - 'umiku-ma-kahi (literally ten and one)

  • 12 - 'umiku-ma-lua

  • 13 - 'umiku-ma-kolu

  • 14 - 'umiku-ma-ha-

  • 15 - 'umiku-ma-lima

  • 16 - 'umiku-ma-ono

  • 17 - 'umiku-ma-hiku

  • 18 - 'umiku-ma-walu

  • 19 - 'umiku-ma-iwa

  • 20 - iwaka-lua

  • 21 - iwaka-luaku-ma-kahi

  • 30 - kanakolu

  • 40 - kanaha-

  • 50 - kanalima

  • 60 - kanaono

  • 70 - kanahiku

  • 80 - kanawalu

  • 90 - kanaiwa

  • 100 - hanele/ho'okahi haneli

  • 101 - ho'okahi haneli a me kahi (only shorten 'ekahi)

  • 102 - ho'okahi haneli a me 'elua

  • 110 - ho'okahi haneli 'umi (now you can just add the 2-digit number words to ho'okahi haneli)

  • 188 - ho'okahi haneli kanawaluku-ma-walu

  • 200 - 'elua haneli

  • 300 - 'ekolu haneli

  • 1000 - kaukani

  • 2000 - 'elua kaukani

if the tens digit is a 0 but the ones digit is not, add "a me" before saying the ones digit

  • 10,000 - 'umi kaukani

  • 100,000 - ho'okahi haneli kaukani

Mahalo nui for sharing numbers. The team has been working diligently on making the next set of skills become available to the learners.

What is the rule for placing he in the front of the sentence that has numbers?
He 'elua apala.
'Umikūmălua papa he'e nalu. Is there a cutoff like ten or eleven? What are the rules?

    If youʻre looking to get the ʻokina, go to the ENG on the bottom right of your screen and choose HAW. When you need an ʻokina, it will automatically put i the right way and when you need a kahakō, you simply hold the right ALT key with the letter.
