The Hawaiian word of the day is Mikini Hoolu Ea. Today's word is made up of three parts: Mikini, which is a Hawaiian translation of the word machine; Hoolu - meaning to cool, and Ea - air. When you combine all three words, you get "the machine which cools air" or air conditioner.
It is necessary for new vocabulary to be created almost constantly in Hawaiian, as the use of the language adapts, especially in regards to social changes and technological advancements.
