Abstract (summary)

This paper, written entirely in the Hawaiian language for the requirements of the Masters' Degree in Hawaiian Language and Literature of Ka Haka 'Ula O Ke'elikōlani College of Hawaiian Language, focuses on the poetry of the first part of the ancient Hawaiian epic, “Hiiakaikapoliopele” written by Joseph M. Poepoe and published in the Hawaiian language newspaper Ka Nupepa Kuokoa Home Rula in 1908. This is a structural analysis of the poetry with emphasis on devices linking paired utterances. These paired utterances are connected in their qualities of sound, meaning and grammatical use. Each of these three qualities consists of various features which are also analyzed.

The qualities and features of the paired utterances are arranged into 15 patterns which have been categorized and labeled into three major types.

The appendices consist of the original poetry items as printed in the first part of “Hiiakaikapoliopele” of the Hawaiian language newspaper Ka Nupepa Kuokoa Home Rula, 1908; the modernized spelling of the poetry texts with schematic drawing to indicate paired and triplet and more utterances; a record of all paired utterances with analysis of qualities and features for each pair; a list of patterns for triplet and more utterances; and a list of new lexicon.
