hāwaʻe/ hā.waʻe /
1. n., A sea urchin (Tripneustes gratilla 🌐). Figuratively, of no character or substance, perhaps so used because of the sayings hāwaʻe kai nui, sea urchin with much juice [and little meat, hence useless], and he hāweʻa ʻiʻo ʻole, sea urchin without meat [or brains].
2. n., A kind of stone, used as sinkers for octopus lures.
3. n., Sprouts from sweet potatoes.
