Without question, this is the definitive grammar of the Hawaiian language. Indeed it is the first attempt at a comprehensive treatment of the subject since W.D. Alexander published his concise Short Synopsis of the Most Essential Points in Hawaiian Grammar in 1864. This grammar is intended as companion piece to the Hawaiian Dictionary, by the same authors.

The grammar was written with every student of the Hawaiian language in mind-from the casual interested layperson to the professional linguist and grammarian. Although it was obviously imposible to avoid technical terms, their use was kept to a minimum, and a glossary is included for those who need its help. Each point of grammar is illustrated with examples, many from Hawaiian-language literature.
