Headword (no ʻokina/kahakō):


 b     c     d     f     g     j     r     s     t     v     z    


ea    eb    ed    ee    eg    eh    ei    ek    el    em    en    eo    ep    er    es    et    eu    ev    ew       

e₁  part. marking imperative/intentive mood. see e (verb) ai, e (verb) ana. (Gram. 5.4)   PCP *e.

e  is the sign of the imperative mood, And generally of the infinitive also, though after hiki and pono the e of the infinitive is changed into ke. Gram. § 191 and 193. E is also the sign of the future tense. Gram. § 190, 1.

e₂  agentive part. by, by means of (follows a pas/imp.). (Gram. 9.9)   [PPn *e, preposed agent marker: *(q)e]

Ua ʻāhewa ʻia ʻoia e ke aliʻi.He was blamed by the chief.

e  prep. By. As a preposition, it is mostly used after passive verbs to express the agent; as, ua ahewaia oia e ke alii, he was condemned by the chief. Many verbs have no sign of a passive voice, the construction of the sentence alone determines it, and the e thus situated helps determine the point as much as anything; nui loa hoi ka poe daimonio i mahiki aku e ia. Gram. § 105,11.

e₃  infinitive part. used before certain subordinate verbs. (Gram. 5.4)   [(EO) PPn *ke, verbal particle introducing subordinate clauses; in order to, so that]

Makemake au e hele.I want to go.

e₄  see ē₁, vocative part...

ē₁  voc. part. a second ē often follows the head word for emphasis. Ē is shortened to e before third-person pronouns: see e ia nei, e lākou ala. PPN *(ʻe)e.

Ē ke aliʻi o Maui.O chief of Maui.

Ē Pua; ē Pua ē.O Pua.

e  standing before nouns marks the auihea or vocative case; it also often follows the same case; as, e ka lani e, O chief. Gram. § 105, 8. is used also to call or invite attention to what one is about to say; a contraction, perhaps of ea. NOTE.—E is mostly used at the beginning of an address, and ea in the middle, or if a single sentence, only at the end.

ē₂  intensifying part. as in the common exclamation below. (Gram. 7.5)  

Auē nohoʻi ē!My! Oh my!

ē₃  interj. Alas!

ē₄  a word used only at the end of a sentence or phrase, with meanings such as: yeah; right; isn't that so? (commonly pronounced the same as the French hein which carries the same meaning.)

Paʻakikī loa kēlā haʻawina, ē?That was a really hard lesson, yeah?

ʻe-  prefix to numerals, inanimate, as ʻekahi, ʻelua, ʻekolu. PPN *e.

ʻe  After a word ending in a, 'e is a contraction for ae.

ʻē₁  nvs. different, strange, peculiar, unusual, heathen (Biblical), other. cf. ʻē aʻe, ʻano ʻē, mea ʻē. (Gram. 1.4)   [PPn *kehe, different, be different, other]

ʻāina ʻēforeign land

He ʻē!How strange! [It] is gone, past!

e  adv. Other; another; strange; new; mea e, a stranger, a strange thing; kanaka e, a stranger; often syn. with malihini. Nah. 15:15. following either active, passive or neuter verbs signifies before hand, and serves to mark a kind of second future tense of the verb; as, lohe e au, I heard before; hiki e mai oia, he had arrived first. Gram. § 190, 2d.

ʻē₂  interj. yes (unemphatic, as in mild agreement and indicating that one has heard; cf. ʻae). [PPn *ee, yes]

e  adv. Synonymous with and a contraction for ae; yes. E, yes, is more familiar, and not so dignified and respectful as ae. see ae.

ʻē₃  n. the letter "e". Eng.

e  the second letter of the Hawaiian alphabet. It represents the sound of the long slender a in English, or its sound is like that of e in obey. It is sometimes commuted for a, as in the numericals from elua, alua, to eiwa, aiwa; also in alelo, the tongue, elelo; mahana, warm, mehana. In an unaccented syllable at the end of a word, its sound is similar to that of the English y, as ope, opy; mahope, mahopy, &c.

ʻē₄  n. key of A (music). Eng. MUS

ʻē₅  nvs. away off, elsewhere (Gram. 1.4)  

Hele ma kahi ʻē!Go away! Get out!

Holo ʻē lākou.They fled beforehand (away, elsewhere).

I kahi ʻē ka ua, waele ʻē ke pulu.When the rain is elsewhere, open up beforehand the mulch [prepare for rain before it comes]. (ON 1178)

e  adv. From; away; e holo e lakou, they will flee from; e puhi e, blow away; i kai lilo e, at sea afar off; v. To enter, as into a country or city. To dash upon, as waves upon the deck of a ship; aohe o kana mai o ka nui o na ale i e maluna o ka moku. see ee.

ʻē₆  nvs. beforehand, already, before, premature, in advance (sometimes translated ‘had’ and called by (And) a sign of the pluperfect tense, although it is used after the imperative mood). (Gram. 1.4)  

Holo ʻē lākou.They fled beforehand (away, elsewhere).

I kahi ʻē ka ua, waele ʻē ke pulu.When the rain is elsewhere, open up beforehand the mulch [prepare for rain before it comes.. (ON 1178)

ʻIke ʻē lākou.They already knew.

e (verb) ana  particles indicating incompleted action and future. (Gram. 5.2)   [Pn(CE) *e__ana, continuous aspect marker]
