Welcome to Mo'o and Lolo's Hawaiian dictionary on-line. This on-line dictionary contains close to 5,000 Hawaiian-English and English-Hawaiian words. These are most of the frequently used words and definitions. In the Hawaiian language, most words have multiple meanings and sometimes hidden meanings. When the language is spoken, the understanding comes from the context of what is being said. We used Mary Kawena Pukui and Samuel H. Elbert's dictionary as a reference for our dictionary on-line. It is important for the Hawaiian culture to preserve and continue the use of the Hawaiian language. We hope this will be a relatively good guide to some commonly used Hawaiian words and the Hawaiian translations of certain English words. This dictionary is for entertainment purposes and to also encourage the use and intrests in the Hawaiian language. We hope you have fun and learn something too. E Ola Mau Ka 'Olelo Hawai'i! The Hawaiian Language Lives Forever!
