Hawaiian fonts offered by Fontfabric are typefaces that are designed to support the written Hawaiian language and Hawaiian orthography. Hawaiian is a Polynesian language and it has its own unique Hawaiian alphabet.
Each letter in the Hawaiian alphabet has only one sound associated with it. Hawaiian orthography is relatively simple compared to many other writing systems, and it does not use diacritical marks or accents to indicate long vowels or other pronunciation nuances. The one unique feature of Hawaiian typography is the use of the ʻokina. A character so important for conveying meaning in the language. Correct display in digital fonts is essential.
