The third edition of the "Hawaiian-English Dictionary" and the first edition of the "English-Hawaiian Dictionary" are combined in this publication. The Hawaiian-English section has four supplements: (1) a list of more than 1,000 new entries, including the 500 included as Supplement A in the third edition, bringing the total number of Hawaiian-English entries to approximately 26,000; (2) a glossary of gods, demigods, family gods, and heroes selected on the basis of their frequency in place names, legends, chants, and songs; (3) a list of Hawaiian gods with their specializations and the important forms they assumed; and (4) a list of Hawaiian reflexes of Proto-Polynesian and Proto-Malayo-Polynesian, unchanged from that appearing in the third edition. About 75 new entries of English words with Hawaiian equivalents and a few additional given names have been added as a supplement to the English-Hawaiian section. The bibliography has been brought up to date and now includes references to Hawaiian folklore not previously listed. (Author/RL)
