Summary Mamaka Kaiao adds to the 1998 edition more than 1,000 new and contemporary words that are essential to the continuation and growth of ka 'olelo Hawi'i-the Hawaiian language. The title, which in English means "carrying forward into the dawning of a new era," emphasizes the role of this work in providing today's speakers and students of Hawaiian with a modern vocabulary. The first main section contains more than 6,000 Hawaiian entries (alphabetized according to the Hawaiian alphabet) followed by their English equivalents; the second contains English language entries followed by their Hawaiian translation.
