The "English-Hawaiian Dictionary," companion volume to the "Hawaiian-English Dictionary," compiled by the same authors in 1957, contains Hawaiian equivalents of approximately 12,500 English words. While serving as a key to the 25,00 entries in the Hawaiian-English volume, this dictionary is designed to be used independently. Certain features of the language and the method of compilation are described in the Introduction. Entries having variation in their English meaning, as well as semantic nuances in Hawaiian which do not exist in English, are indicated separately. A special feature is a supplement giving the Hawaiian equivalent of some 700 English given names. A bibliography of works cited or consulted concludes the volumes. (AMM)
