b  NOTE.—The following words have been introduced from foreign languages. Owing to the peculiar structure of the Hawaiian (every syllable ending in a vowel sound), the forms of these words are somewhat modified, by dropping a letter or syllable of the original, but more frequently perhaps by inserting or adding a vowel in order to Hawaiianize them. A sufficiency of foreign letters is retained to show their derivation and distinguish them from native words by their orthography.
