E a'o i kekahi 'ōlelo

Na Kekeha Solis

POSTED:



Synopsis: Everyone should learn another language and use English less.

Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu o Kauakūkalahale. Ua pōmaika'i ko 'oukou mea kākau i ka hele 'ana e nānā i ka hana keaka i kapa 'ia 'o Ka Hau'oli A Mau Loa Aku, 'o ia ho'i, 'o Happily Eva Afta i ka Lāpule nei. Ma ia hana keaka, ua ho'ololi 'ia iho ke 'ano o kekahi mau mo'olelo kaulana o nā 'āina 'ē ma ka ho'okomo 'ana aku i nā 'ano o kekahi mau lāhui, 'o ka Hawai'i, 'o ka Pākē a pēlā aku.

Aloha nō, 'a'ole ia ma ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i, akā, ma ka 'ao'ao pōmaika'i, 'a'ole ia ma ka 'ōlelo haole. 'O ka 'ōlelo i ho'opuka 'ia ma ua hana keaka lā, 'o ia ka 'ōlelo pa'i 'ai. A piha hau'oli ka na'au o ko 'oukou mea kākau, 'oiai, ma mua, ua ho'oikaika nā luna aupuni, 'o Ben Cayetano kekahi o lākou, e kinai aku i ka 'ōlelo pa'i 'ai. 'O ka mea 'āpiki, i kona wā e ho'ohalahala ana i nā kānaka 'ōlelo pa'i 'ai, 'o ka 'ōlelo pa'i 'ai ka mea e puka mai ana mai loko mai o kona waha. He keu aku a ka ho'okamani!

'O ia ka mea minamina. Mana'o kekahi po'e 'ōlelo haole a 'ōlelo pa'i paha, 'o ka 'ōlelo haole ka 'oi, 'a'ohe ona lua. I kekahi manawa, he kū nō i ka ho'okae 'ili. A no laila i lilo ai ia mau hua'ōlelo e kau a'ela i luna, 'o ia ke po'omana'o o kēia lā, 'o ia ho'i, E a'o i kekahi 'ōlelo a e kāpae aku i ka 'ōlelo haole ma kahi 'ē.

E 'ōlelo auane'i kekahi, 'o ka 'ōlelo haole, 'o ka 'ōlelo ho'opili ia i kekahi mau kānaka i 'oko'a ka 'ōlelo makuahine, 'o ia ho'i, 'o ka “lingua franca” ia no nā lāhui he nui. No ke aha lā i lilo 'ole ai kekahi 'ōlelo, 'o ia ka “lingua franca”? 'Eā, i lilo ka 'ōlelo haole, 'o ia ka “lingua franca” ma muli o kākou, ua puni wale aku. 'A'ole 'o kākou wale nō ma Hawai'i nei, akā, he nui nō nā kānaka i puni wale, ma Kina, ma Kōlea, a ma ia 'āina 'ē aku, ia 'āina 'ē aku. A no laila, 'o ka manawa nō kēia e ho'opau ai i ia mana o ka 'ōlelo haole.

Eia ko 'oukou mea kākau ke paipai aku nei iā 'oukou, e a'o i kekahi 'ōlelo a e pau ka mana o ka 'ōlelo haole. E nihi ka hele ma ke a'o 'ana, 'a'ole pilikia. A ma Hawai'i nei, he nui nō nā 'ōlelo e a'o ai, 'o ka 'ōlelo Hawai'i (ua pa'a 'ē na'e ia iā 'oukou e nā makamaka heluhelu), 'o ka 'ōlelo pa'i 'ai, a me nā 'ōlelo 'ē he nui, 'o ka 'ōlelo Pākē 'oe, ka 'ōlelo Kepanī 'oe, ka 'ōlelo Kōlea a pēlā aku.

Ke hana kākou pēlā, ma kēia hope aku, 'a'ole ana ka “lingua franca” 'o ka 'ōlelo haole. 'O ka 'ōlelo pa'i 'ai ana paha ia. 'O ka 'ōlelo Pilipino ana paha. 'O ka mea nui, 'a'ole 'o ka 'ōlelo haole.

'Auhea 'oukou e nā luna aupuni, e a'o ka po'e keiki i nā 'ōlelo 'elua, 'ekolu a 'ehā paha, i hiki iā lākou ke launa pū me nā kānaka like 'ole a puni ka honua. A 'o kekahi mea, ke a'o kākou i nā 'ōlelo like 'ole, e a'o pū ana kākou i ke 'ano o nā kānaka nāna ia 'ōlelo, a me kā lākou hana, a 'a'ole nō e hāiki ana ko kākou no'ono'o 'ana. A pēlā paha e emi ai ke 'ano ho'okae 'ili o kekahi mau kānaka.

'O ia ihola. Mahalo iā 'oukou e nā hoa puni heluhelu. Ke ho'i aku nei ko Mānoa keiki, ua ahiahi.

Die Heilige Schrift, 1. Mose - Kapitel 11. 1 Es hatte aber alle Welt einerlei Zunge und Sprache. 2 Da sie nun zogen gen Morgen, fanden sie ein ebenes Land im Lande Sinear, und wohnten daselbst. 3 Und sie sprachen untereinander: Wohlauf, laß uns Ziegel streichen und brennen! und nahmen Ziegel zu Stein und Erdharz zu Kalk 4 und sprachen: Wohlauf, laßt uns eine Stadt und einen Turm bauen, des Spitze bis an den Himmel reiche, daß wir uns einen Namen machen! denn wir werden sonst zerstreut in alle Länder. 5 Da fuhr der HERR hernieder, daß er sähe die Stadt und den Turm, die die Menschenkinder bauten. 6 Und der HERR sprach: Siehe, es ist einerlei Volk und einerlei Sprache unter ihnen allen, und haben das angefangen zu tun; sie werden nicht ablassen von allem, was sie sich vorgenommen haben zu tun. 7 Wohlauf, laßt uns herniederfahren und ihre Sprache daselbst verwirren, daß keiner des andern Sprache verstehe! 8 Also zerstreute sie der HERR von dort alle Länder, daß sie mußten aufhören die Stadt zu bauen. (Lukas 1.51) 9 Daher heißt ihr Name Babel, daß der HERR daselbst verwirrt hatte aller Länder Sprache und sie zerstreut von dort in alle Länder.

Hey, I did what the article says we should do. I know another language and am using it so I use English less. Now, if only you fellows could read German, you'd know that my comment is exactly on topic. But let me give you a little hint. Take a look at sentence number 9, word number 5, and you'll get an idea of it.
