Hawaiian language - Wikipedia
- that language has a small number of consonants: /p, k, ?, h, n, m, w, l/, where /?/ is the glottal stop, a short pause, usually written as a ', like how "bottle" is pronounced "bo'l" in some English dialects. Thus, "Hawaii" is more properly spelled "Hawai'i", hawai-(pause)-i. The language also has five vowels, /a, e, i, o, u/, vowels that can be short or long, and also several diphthongs, vowel-to-vowel glides. Long vowels are written with a macron or dash over the vowel letter, though I like to write them with a hat: /â, ê, î, ô, û/. Syllables are (consonant)-(vowel) or (vowel) -- no final consonants.
