We recognize the significance of diacritical markings in written Hawaiian as pronunciation guides. Omidyar Fellows aims to include diacriticals on this website whenever possible; however, the markings may display inconsistently across various computer platforms/browsers, and the intended meaning of the words may unintentionally be misrepresented.
