That Letter D.

Not too many Hawaiian words and phrases begin with the letter D, I figured the most important word is:
Dat: Yes, it means that.(slang)
Though this word might be pidgin-English, it also might be easier to say when you're on Hawaiian-time. Also, Portuguese explorers and Missionaries left their influence on linguistic expressions and pronunciation.

  2. I agree with William. I've seen that word in a book written by an English author.
