Diacriticals

Diacriticals

PomaikaiBallrooms.com recognizes the use of diacritical markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language including the ‘okina [‘] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawai‘i such as Lāna‘i). However, you may notice these diacritical markings have been omitted throughout the website to ensure the best online experience for our visitors. PomaikaiBallrooms.com recognizes the importance of using these markings to preserve the language and culture of Hawaii and respectfully uses them in all communications beyond the online platform.
