Hawaiian Word of the Day

Hawaiian Word of the Day: April 23rd


Our Hawaiian Word of the Day is l?nai, a term often used, and most often mispronounced or confused with other similar words. It means porch, veranda, balcony, booth or shed. Don't confuse it with lanai which means stiff backed like a chair, or L?na?i, the name of the island. Today's word is l?nai – say it with a stress on the first vowel.
