Hawai’is state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, also known as Humu or Picasso triggerfish is one of the most fun language pronouncing exercises that I know.
The easiest way to learn this very long Hawaiian word is to dissect it into the following parts: humu, nuku, apu.
Humu – humu – nuku – nuku.
Then you only need to add apu and a’a.
The two a at the end of the word aren’t pronounced long but very short and with a pause in between.
I’ve teamed up with Rita @ryc.paints for this wallpaper. She painted the gorgeous background in teal and purple colors, and I added the humu and Leo & Virgo zodiac symbols with Procreate.
As always, you can download the wallpaper in two different sizes from my dropbox. There’s also a phone version.
