ʻā₈  n. the letter "a". Eng.

a  in Hawaiian, as in most other languages, is the first letter of the alphabet; because, if pronounced open as a in father, it is the simplest and easiest of all sounds. Encye. Amer. Its sound, in Hawaiian, is generally that of a in father, ask, pant, &c.; but it has, sometimes, when standing before the consonants k, l, m, n, and p, a short sound, somewhat resembling the short u, as in mutter, but not so short. Thus paka, malimali, lama, mana, napenape, are pronounced somewhat as we should pronounce pukka, mullymully, lumma, munna, nuppynuppy, &c.; reference being had only to the first vowel of each word. It has also in a few words a sound nearly resembling (but not so strong) that of au or aw in English; as iwaho, mawaho, pronounced somewhat as iwauho, mawauho. To foreigners who merely read the language, the common pronunciation of a as in father is near enough for all practical purposes; but to those who wish to speak it, the mouth of a Hawaiian is the best directory. is used for various parts of speech, and, of course, has various significations; s. Name of the Hawaiian alphabet; also the first sheet on which it was printed.
