the seventh letter of the Hawaiian alphabet. Its sound varies somewhat from the English k, sound to that of the t, according as the enunciation is made at the end of the tongue or near the root. It is difficult to make Hawaiians perceive the difference between the English sounds of k and t. The natives on the Island of Hawaii generally pronounce the letter with the palate, that is, give it the k sound, while the natives of the Island of Kauai pronounce it with the end of the tongue that is, pronounce it as t.

the fifth letter of the Hawaiian alphabet. Its sound varies somewhat from the English K sound to that of the T, according as the enunciation is made at the end of the tongue or near the root. The natives on the island of Hawaii generally pronounce the letter with the palate, that is, give it the K sound, while the natives of the island of Kauai pronounce it with the end of the tongue, that is, pronounce it as T. K has a short hard sound, as in certain combinations of K and E, as Ken, Keg, Kelp, etc. Often, in words that required more than a single K sound the T was used in place of a second K, as ketahi for kekahi. This form, however, was peculiar to the natives of Kauai, and finds no place in the average talk of the present day.
