Ahi actually means fire. 'Ahi is the correct spelling for the tuna fish, with the 'okina before the "a". The diacritical marks in the Hawaiian language make quite a difference. Just for future references.

So is it a way of preparing tuna? Like.. Ahi tuna = fire-grilled tuna?

No, 'ahi = tuna. 'Ahi tuna is just redundant.

I think judging by other comments that: Ahi 'Ahi would be something like fire-grilled tuna/fire tuna.

Close... it'd be 'ahi ahi (adjectives after the nouns they modify). And yes, you can absolutely hear the 'okina when a native Hawaiian speaks Hawaiian, just like you can hear the kahakō (elongated vowel).

Can you accept Pearl Harbour with a U?
+1
level 61
Oct 23, 2013
No. That is not how it's spelled. The common spelling of harbor may include a U in your region, but since this is a proper name, it is spelled only one way and that is without the U.

Jun 18, 2018
I'm from the USA - since so many people have so loudly pointed out that America is not the country but the continent, I'm not really sure what part of America you are referencing, but I never spell either Edinburgh or Pittsburgh without the final "H". It usually costs me a couple of extra seconds on my next answer, but it is a habit that I just can't seem to break - even on Jetpunk. So does that mean that you are able to use the final "H" without it appearing as the first letter in your next answer? If you can, I'd like to find out how because I do try not to be "just stupid".

I visited Hawaii last year and actually saw two nenes crossing a road in Hawai'i Volcanoes NP. There's only about 900 or so one Hawaii island today so that was pretty cool. Apparently there were fewer than 25 on Hawaii island in the 1930's.

I tried to write "kalo" as the answer for the plant poi comes from, but it didn't accept it. Isn't that how it's spelled in Hawaiian? Or is it just not offered as a possible answer?

No, Donald Trump has already given up on birther problem, as he know accepts that Obama was born in the US.

Fun fact: Hillary was one of first people to start the whole birther thing. But I'm sure people will neglect that and say it was the Donald.

Except Hillary neither started or propagated that lie and neither did her campaign. The like one person who even mentioned it was an unpaid volunteer who was fired immediately. Trump didn't start the birther question and neither did Hillary. But Donald gained his political prominence by latching onto the lie and spreading it even further. He lied when he said he had credible reason to doubt President Obama being born in the US and he lied by saying Hillary started it. Not a Hillary fan btw I just like facts.
