Spelling Word of the Day: it is a common saying in Hawaii that “the name is longer than the fish”

January 21, 2010

Every day of 2010, I’ll be posting a spelling word here for those who would like some spelling bee practice. Photo at right is from the Williamsburg Spelling Bee, as photographed by Eric Walton.

Start the audio file to hear the word, definition, and etymology. Once you’ve spelled the word for yourself, click “Read More” to see the answer.

The Answer:

humuhumunukunukuapuaa

(or, although apostrophes are non-standard in spelling bees, humuhumunukunukuapua’a)

Go here to learn more about the Williamsburg Spelling Bee.

Did you see the answer before you were able to listen to the audio file? That’s probably because you followed a link directly to the post page. To keep that from happening, visit the main blog page instead, or bookmark this page for spelling bee words only.
