Current Research

ʻO kaʻu kumuhana noiʻi no ke kekelē Laeoʻo ʻŌlelo a Moʻokalaleo Hawaiʻi ka "lawena leo" Hawaiʻi (ʻo ia hoʻi ke kiʻinaleo, ka nuileo, ka wikileo/māmāleo, ka panaleo, apa). E kālailai ana au i ka leo o kekahi kupuna i hānau i ka hopena o nā makahiki 1800 i mea e ʻike ai i kekahi mau lauana o ka lawenaleo Hawaiʻi o ia kanaka.

The topic of my research is currently Hawaiian prosody (intonation, intensity, rhythm, tempo, and other associated factors) for my Master's Degree in Hawaiian Language and Literature. I am in the process of analyzing the voice of a Hawaiian gentleman born in the late 1800s in order to extract some Hawaiian intonational patterns.

  1. e palapala i ka leo ma ka "laina manawa"
  2. e kahakiʻi i ke kiʻeleo F0 o ke kiʻinaleo
  3. e ana i ka nuileo a me ka wikileo/māmāleo
  4. e huli i kekahi mau lauana o ka lawenaleo Hawaiʻi
  1. map speech to an accurate timeline
  2. create and annotate fundamental pitch (F0) changes over time
  3. to assess the role of intensity and rhythm
  4. to look for patterns which identify typical Hawaiian prosody
