    Title: Hawaiian Language Hybridisation: A Result of Revitalisation

    Abstract: What does successful language revitalisation mean? Does it mean retrieving and maintaining the language of L1s or inventing a language that perhaps resembles that of L1s? What are the most effective ways to teach the linguistic and cultural competencies of L1s in a linguistic environment depleted of L1s? What are we to think of newly invented terms created by English L1s for concepts Hawaiian L1s already had terms for? Conflicts between the L1 community of Ni‘ihau and Kaua‘i islands and L2-dominant institutions highlight linguistic wranglings between the two domains over maintenance of the Hawaiian language. What is the kuleana of the learner?
