Hawaiian Word of the Day
Weekdays at 7:30am & 5:29pm on HPR-1, and 3pm on HPR-2

This daily feature encourages awareness of the use of Hawaiian language, or ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, in everyday conversation. In each 30-second vignette, host Leilani Poliʻahu introduces a new word, explains what it means, spells it, and models the correct pronunciation.
