It's "Havaii" you dummy!

Two students who were studying English went to Honolulu on holiday. Soon they began to argue about the correct way to pronounce the word "Hawaii." One student insisted that it's "Hawaii," with a "w" sound. The other student said it was pronounced "Havaii," with a "v" sound. Finally, they saw a man on the beach whom they knew had lived on the islands for many years and asked him which was correct. The old man said, "It's Havaii." The student who was right was very happy, and thanked the old man. The old man replied, "You're velcome."

What is particularly funny about this is that the Hawaiian language was first tabulated by a German in the early 19th century. That's OK, the apostrophe between the i's is a glottal shop that is completely lost to English speakers.

Frank - wishes he still lived there.

I knew it wouldn't be too long before someone bought up that glottal thing.
