ISBN 0-8248-0703-0
Excerpt from Introduction: "Hula masters and students have called the dictionary their bible, perhaps because of the many citations from chants, songs, and ancient prayers, the poetic sayings and epithets, and the abundance of pithy proverbs that comment on many aspects of Hawaiian life. Perhaps no other Polynesian dictionary contains as much poetry, folklore, and ethnology."
