Aloha A to Z visitors.
My book Penniless Hearts takes place in Hawaii and I thought it might be fun to participate this year by providing everyone with some great Hawaiian words and meanings. Who knows you might write a book set in Hawaii too. Of course the first one is ALOHA!!!

Aloha is the most common expression on the islands. It can mean hello and goodbye, you're  welcome or best wishes and can be used to describe a feeling of romance. If you travel to Hawaii the best word to know is Aloha.

Twenty five more Hawaiian words and phrases will have you speaking like an islander, so come back tomorrow for the letter B.


  1. Versatile word! Look forward to learning more.

  2. This is a fun idea. I can't wait for the others. Having lived there, I can't count how many times a day I hear Aloha.
    Having read your wonderful book, I'd encourage others to read it too. It's well worth it. and Aloha to you.

  3. Very cool. A tutorial on how to speak Hawiian.

    Hugs and chocolate to you, Evie!

  4. Aloha Eve, I read (and loved) Penniless Hearts I enjoyed finding out more about Hawaii at the same time. I hope to visit one day so your words will come in handy.
    I don’t seem to be able to keep up with my blog visits at the moment, but I will catch up soon and be back to read more of your posts. Hugs Barbara.
