I'm a graduate student in Linguistic Anthropology at University of Alaska Fairbanks. I study dying and endangered languages, and my main interest is with Polynesian languages. I speak a fair number of languages competently, and have been teaching myself Hawaiian for maybe 8 or 9 months now. I speak Tagalog and some Maori (distantly related languages) and travel to Hawai'i every year and have purchased some great language learning books down there (will be applying to UHM for my PhD).
However, I was wondering if there was anyone on this board (Mamo?) that would'nt mind helping work some stuff out. Being a linguist, I tend to have a good amount of questions that someone who speaks the language could answer for me quite easily.
So if anyone wouldnt mind kindly helping me, I'd be greatful!
Ma Hawai'i ku'u pu'uwai!
