The use of the glottal stop symbol ('okina) by civilians (i.e. =
non-linguist=3D
s) probably dates back to the recent rise in Hawaiian =
consciousness/nationa=3D
lism in the eighties and nineties. The politically correct symbol, =
incident=3D
ally, is not an apostrophe but a reverse apostrophe (open single quote =

I just received a change.org<http://change.org> petition "Ban Conversion Therapy for =
Minors
in Hawai'i".=3D3DC2=3D3DA0 The petition was started by one
Michael Golojuch Jr of Kapolei, HI.=3D3DC2=3D3DA0 He spells the name =
of the =3D
state=3D3D
with
an apostrophe between the last two letters, except in what appears =
to be
the text of the petition he uses the spelling "Hawaii".
=3D20
Mr. Golojuch in the below-cited URL also uses the expression "Mahalo =
nui
loa" and the word "aloha" so he knows at least 4 words of Hawaiian.
