This collection contains audio and corresponding TextGrid files for portions of eight episodes of Ka Leo Hawaiʻi, a Hawaiian-language radio show which ran from 1972 to 1988 on KCCN Honolulu. The eight episodes represented in this collection were recorded between 1972 and 1974. These were utilized in the analysis for my dissertation in the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Linguistics Department, "Haʻina ʻia mai ana ka puana: The vowels of ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi", which can be found at: http://ling.hawaii.edu/wp-content/uploads/Kettig_Dissertation_Final.pdf. More details can be found in the readme file, TK1-001.txt.
Dr. Larry Kimura, the original interviewer for these programs, controls the Ulukau collection that includes the episodes of Ka Leo Hawaiʻi. He has granted permission to archive these files. Original audio for all Ka Leo Hawaiʻi episodes can be found at the website for the Kaniʻāina project: https://ulukau.org/kaniaina/. A partially-overlapping set of ELAN-aligned Ka Leo Hawaiʻi episodes is also available on Kaipuleohone: https://scholarspace.manoa.hawaii.edu/handle/10125/59147.
Funding for the creation of this collection was provided by the Bilinski Educational Foundation as well as the Dai Ho Chun Fund for Graduate Fellowships, the Samuel H. Elbert Graduate Fund in Hawaiian and Polynesian Languages, Mānoa Opportunity Grants, and support from the UHM Linguistics Department.
