In my Nanowrimo novel that I’m rewriting this month (see post: Camp Nanowrimo) I’ve been using a lot of Hawaiian words to create the culture of my made-up island. Here are some of my favorite words and their meanings:
- Mahalo–thank you
- Pilikia- troubles
- Pōmaika’i- good fortune, blessing
Which ones are your fav? Have any neat words of your own you’d like to share?
