Word for the Travel Wise (04/22/06)
Today's word is a Fijian word used in Fiji:
daulomani - husband
Okay, I wouldn't marry for a tropical island vacation and don't act like you've never thought of it before, I'm talking Fiji here. You have to understand where I'm coming from. Perhaps wife number 3 or 7 wouldn't be so bad. Luckily I have some time to sort out my thoughts and brush up on the Fijian lang. I just might need it in the event I ever decide to head out on my own to search for a husband who will want me and only me. How sad does this sound? Anyhow, let's get onto the language resources, shall we?
Fiji Dictionary has about 850 words translating from Fijian-English and vice versa. The author of the site has a small disclaimer up top to remind those of us seeking methods to learn Fijian tongue online, that theirs may not be the most accurate and to use at your own risk. Rob Kay's Fiji Guide has a pronunciation guide in addition to several useful words and historical background on the Fijian language including Fijian Hindi.
