Glyph of the word 'teviko'.


  • (n.) eel

A iwe havakalávata li’i tiu teviko.
“My hovercraft is full of eels.”

Notes: Eh. Today I just feel like an eel.

Of course, the example sentence is pretty famous, for some reason, so nice to get it out of the way. Naturally Kamakawi lacks a word for “hovercraft”, so I borrowed in the English word, but eels? Please! Kamakawi’s got eels, yo!

    Heh, heh… Yeah, it is rather eelish. I’ve warmed to it.
