Hawai'iEdit

Is that a different way to spell Hawaii or a typo? --Sneg 18:56, 28 September 2006 (UTC)

That's technically the correct rendition, and how it's pronounced (with a glottal stop). Go to Hawai'i and you'll see they call it Hawai'i. Non-Hawaiians mangle the pronunciations. There was some debate on it a few years ago, and "Hawai'i" became the legally, internationally recognized standard. It's rendered so in the World Almanacs and on maps. Since Qo'noS is Kronos, I went for Hawai'i over Hawaii. --Sasoriza 08:46, 29 September 2006 (UTC)
That's pretty funny. I was just away the past two days and I saw this same spelling! Once again "they" are changing the rules (like Pluto not being a planet and the spelling of Chairman Mao Tse-tung to Mao Zedong - who are these people who keep changing everything I learned since school!?!?)  :-) --Sneg 22:43, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
The experts. It makes sense in both cases. Well, definitely in Pluto's case. Re: Hawai'i, though, I wonder why we don't call other nations by their native names... Francais, España, Deutscheland, etc. --Sasoriza 02:23, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
I've always wondered that too. Why do we call it "German" and not "Deutscheland" (you don't want to know what the Russian's call it) --Sneg 03:30, 1 October 2006 (UTC)
