“He’s a stork! I think…”
Notes: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
Today I got quite a surprise. Erin said she had a present for me, and I descended the stairs to see this fabulous gentleman:
Isn’t he outstanding?! I don’t know if it’s supposed to be a stork or a flamingo or some other type of bird, but I decided his name should be Kaiwea—and that has given birth to a new Kamakawi word. Storks, you see, are ubiquitous, and I’m rather surprised I didn’t have a word for it yet. Well, now I do! And it also allowed me to use the iku for le’o as a determinative, which is something I haven’t yet done.
Today is a good day!
