PL 6501 P82 1893 PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION. The former editions of this work having passed out of print, in compliance with the urgent suggestions of several friends and a strong impression on my own

mind of the necessity for preserving the usefulness of the work, I have now prepared a revised and enlarged edition , and have also introduced into it valuable additions which will be found of great advantage to the student of the Samoan language. From a volume of MS. songs, written out by a native

poet, and lent me by the Rev. G . Brown, I culled 500 new words. On a visit to Samoa in 1885, I ascertained

the correct meaning of these words from various pun dits, and also collected many other words at the same time. Since then I have added to the new collection while translating a volume of myths and legends, & c., compiled by the late Rev. T . Powell. From Marsden 's

Malay Dictionary I obtained 180 Eastern Polynesian roots, which I have inserted in their places. There are also many resemblances found in the Malay Grammar

to the Samoan. (See note appended.) In this edition I have enlarged the Grammar,and

. iv


have added 560 words to the English and Samoan part of the Dictionary.* About 1300 new words or new meanings have been added, making a total of over

12,000 words.

Lastly , I have given a number of Proverbs in use among the natives.

GEO . PRATT. SYDNEY, N .S .W ., 1892. * The English and Samoan Vocabulary has been placed last in the

Book for the convenience of Samoan students learning English ; and the Samoan phonetic spelling of some English words, with the Samoan

names for parts of speech , have been included for the benefit of natives. J. E . N .

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION. For my own amusement in 1875 I wrote out a syntax of the Samoan Grammar. I was led to do this by

observing, while reading Nordheimer's Hebrew Gram mar, that the Samoan, in many points, resembled the

Hebrew . Shortly afterwards the Rev. S. J. Whitmee asked me to contribute the Samoan part of a compara tive Malayo- Polynesian Dictionary . I at once, with the aid of pundits, commenced revising the first edition

of my Dictionary, which was printed at the Samoan Mission Press in 1862. I read through the Hawaii, Maori, Tahiti, and Fiji Dictionaries, and from these I obtained some words which occur also in the Samoan

dialect, but which had been overlooked in the first edition .

I also culled words and examples from

Samoan genealogical accounts, songs, traditionary tales, proverbs, & c . In this way I have been enabled to add over four thousand new words or new meanings.

To the Rev. T . Powell, F.L .S., I am indebted for many new words, including names, both native and scientific, of plants .

Mr. Whitmee has filled up, as far as possible, the scientific names of the plants and animals.

Many immodest words excluded from

the first

edition have been admitted into this . 6 ' Tis needful that themost immodest word Be looked upon and learn 'd ; which, once attained, Comes to no further use But to be known and hated .”



Such is my experience. Having once learnt such a word, I know how to avoid stumbling upon it in


Those who take the opposite course are

apt, all unconsciously , to say things which , had they

known, they would have wished unsaid . Some Polynesian tribes have recently changed the pronunciation of one or two consonants. The natives

of Niuē (Savage Island) have changed the t into ts. Fifteen years ago only a portion of the younger people made the t into ts before i ; as lautsi for lauti. Since

then the practice has spread amongst the people, and the use has been extended by some to the t before any vowel.

In Hawaii they have changed the t into k , and ng

into n . Thus tangata has become kanaka . Samoans are doing the same thing at the present time, to the

great injury of the language. The examples in the Grammar are taken from the Scriptures. I wrote that part on the Island of Tutuila . I had not access to any other Samoan writings, and the convenience afforded by the use of a Concordance was not to be despised. In the Samoan and English part of the Dictionary most of the examples are taken from old songs and historical myths. The examples given with the nouns will show whether they take o

or a , lona or lana, in governing another noun, or in an accompanying pronoun .

That all Samoan words have been collected it would be useless to affirm . I would fain have had several

years during which to go on collecting, but must needs be content to go to press with such as I have, as a new

edition is called for, the former being out of print.


NOTES. (1 ). ON THE Malay LANGUAGE. — The Malay language was inundated in the 12th century by the Arabic. Some letters were then intro duced ; and all words beginning with those letters are Arabic . There are besides “ multitudes of pure Sanscrit words.” (Marsden's Malay Dictionary .)

In introducing Arabic the words liave been softened in accordance

with the genius of the Malay. May not the Malayan words also have been hardened to bring them into accordance with the genius of the Arabic, as iku to ikur; langi to langit. The Malayan abounds in reduplicated words as lakilaki. Redupli cation is a characteristic feature of the Samoan verb. Nouns have no cases. Case is indicated by a preposition , e.g. ka langit, to the sky. An is suffixed to form the noun as pilian , choice, from pili ; compare

ga in Samoan . Gender is denoted by adding male or female. The

adjective follows the noun, and is not otherwise distinguished . Numerals have many resemblances : lima puluh, five feathers, or fifty . In Samoan lima fulu , fifty. In the verb, the causative is indicated by men ; as diya men jakat. All the tenses in Javanese and in Malay are indicated by adverbs ; and this is probably the origin of the verbal particles of the Samoan .

Syntax.— The subject generally follows the verb, and the agent precedes; as, A horse eats grass. Sometimes the subject precedes; as,My plantation the elephants have destroyed. So the Samoan. In the imperfect the agent mostly follows the verb ; thus, Hear thou. Numerals precede the noun, as, Six men ; Samoan, E toa ono tagata . Sometimes they follow , as, 'O manu e fa, four birds.

Malay has a language of politeness ; so also the Samoan. The Polynesians must have migrated before the Malay became than the language at present in use by the Malays. Samoans have lost the h and softened the k, and changed r into l ; but they almost corrupted . Their language, probably, is now nearer to the old Malay

alone have retained the s, and the language of politeness. (2 ). PRACTICAL DIRECTIONS TO EUROPEANS WHO ARE BEGINNING TO LEARN SAMOAN . — Letters : (1) Pronounce vowels as in the Continental languages, not as in English. (2) Pronounce every vowel distinctly, whether short or long. A difference in the quantity or accent of a vowel makes a difference in the meaning of the word ; e.g. mánu, a

bird ; mānu , to rise above. (3 ) Of the consonants g is sounded like

NOTES . ng in the English word sing ; 1, with a or u before it, and i after it, is sounded as a soft r, almost as ad. (4) The “ break ,” which stands for the dropping out of a consonant, usually k,must be carefully observed.


Accent.— The accent falls on the penultimate syllable. Names of places at a distance, of families, and some other words have a long

vowel at the end . A contracted syllable is always long, as lē for le e. The voice is raised on the last word of a sentence. The Article. Se is equal to a or an, Eng.; but le is often used by Samoanswhere a is used in English ; as, 0 le ali'i Pai, Pai is a chief. Nouns. Verbs and adjectives, in their simple form , with 'o le put before them , are used as nouns. When a noun formed from a verb by adding a suffix (ga , & c .) is used to express the idea of agency or action , it takes the genitive preposition a , not o, after it ; as, o le faiga o le fale, the building of the house ; but ' 0 le faiga a fale, the builders of the house. This rule generally regulates also the vowels

of the possessive pronouns lona, lana, & c.,and the dative preposition mo, ma.

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR . LETTERS. THE Samoan alphabet proper consists of only fourteen letters: a , e, i, o , u ; f, g, l, m , n, p, s, t, v. The word ūūū, a shout of triumph, has something very nearly approaching to the aspirate, as if,uhuhu . K is found only in puke ! catch you ; and its compound , pukētā ! Recently,as in the Sandwich Islands, the t has come to be pronounced as k in common conversation. In set speeches the proper pronun ciation is still, for the most part, observed . A is pronounced 1st, long,as in father; pā, a wall. 2nd, rather short,as in mat; patilima, to clap hands. 3rd, very short, nearly like ŭ in smut ; as mate, dead ; maliu , dead ; vave, be quick . The difference between long and short a is very observable in a greatmany words, spelt in the same way, but having widely different meanings ; as tamā, father; táma, child ; făʻamoega, a sheath ; fā' amoega , a war feast ; mănu, a bird ; mānu, to rise above.

The learner must pay special attention to the quantity of a . The

meaning is often dependent on the quantity ; as, păpă, a rock ; pāpā, to burst ; păpā, to miscarry ; tuafăfine, a sister; tuafāfine, sisters. The third quantity is limited to a very few words. E, i, o, u are pronounced as in Continental languages. Each of them has both a long and short quantity ; as pěpē, dead ; tiga, pain ; titi, girdle of ti ; põpā, to pat; popo,dry ; păpă, ironbound coast. G (nga ) is always nasal, as ng in sing. L (la ) the same as in English , except when preceded by either a, o, or ú ,and followed by i, when it is pronounced by most natives as a soft r, almost approaching to a d sound, for which it is substituted , in similar situations, in the pronunciation of New Zealand words ; as kirikiri, pronounced kidikidi ; so in Samoan aliali is pronounced

ariari ; olioli is pronounced oriori ; uliuli as uriuri. S is not quite so sibilantas in English . It is called sa. The other letters, f, m , n, p, t, v, called fa ,mo, nu, pi, ti, vi,are pronounced as in English . In foreign introduced words k and r are retained , as Kerise,



karite, barley ; but d becomes t, as Tavita , David ; ph becomes f, as Fērukia, Phrygia ; g and c hard become k , as Kerika,Greek ; Kanana , Canaan ; h is also retained at the beginning of some proper names ; as Herota, Herod ; z becomes 8, Sakaria ; w becomes , Uiliamu, William ; 5 becomes p, Petania, Bethany. In addition to these, there is a sound something between h and k , and used in the place of the latter letter, as found in words in kindred dialects ; as, uía, paper-mulberry, in Niuē, uka . This is represented by an inverted comma, and is called a “ break .” Two similar vowels cannot occur together without a break between , except in a few cases of compound words ; as mataala , to watch ; mataali, to fall blighted ; mataafi, a large fire, etc.; on the contrary, agaaga is written, and pronounced agaga ; so alaala is alāla . When two such vowels come together in forming new words, or in com mencing a word with the yowel which terminates the preceding word , and with which it stands in close connection, they are pronounced by a single impulse of the voice, as one long vowel ; as mata alofa (mata

lofa), benevolent-looking; alofa atu, to love, pronounced alofātu . A few cases occur of the coalescence of different vowels ; as ma ona, , for him , pronounced mona ; ave atu , to take, contracted to avatu ; tosina , drawn, contracted from tosoina. Every letter is distinctly sounded , so that there are no improper diphthongs. The proper diphthongs are au, as in sau, to come; ai, as in fai, to do; ae, as in mae, to be stale ; ei, as in lelei, good ; ou , as in outou , you ; ue, as in aue, alas !

No two consonants can come together without a vowel between .

All syllables are open , i.e., must end in a vowel. Many natives are exceedingly careless and incorrect in the pro nunciation of consonants, and even exchange or transpose them without confusion, and almost unnoticed by their hearers; as mānu , fornāmu,a scent ; lagoga for lagona , to understand ; lava'au for valaʻau , to call;but they are very particular about the pronunciation of the vowels. In some foreign namesh is changed into 8 ; as Sapaifor Hapai. SYLLABLES. Every syllable must end in a vowel. No 'syllable can consist of more than three letters, one consonant and two vowels, the two vowels making a diphthong ; as fai, mai, tau. Roots are sometimes mono

byllabic, but mostly dissyllabic. Polysyllabic words are nearly all derived or compound words; as nofogatā from nofo and gatā, difficult of access ; taʻigāafi, from taʻi, to attend to the fire, and afi, fire, the hearth .


The general rule is that the accent is on the penultima, but to this there are exceptions. Many words ending in a long vowel take the accent on the ultima; as ma'elegā, zealous ; 'onā, to be intoxicated ; faigatā, difficult. Verbs formed from nounsending in a, and meaning to 'abound in, have properly two a's, as puaā (pua 'aa ), ponā, tagatā , but

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR. are written with one. In speaking of a place at some distance, the accent is placed on the last syllable ; as ' O loro į Safotū, he is at Safotu. The samething is done in referring to a family ; as sa Muli agā, the family of Muliaga. Somost words ending in ga, not a sign of a noun ,as tigā , puapuagā, pologā, fantagā ,ugā. So also all words ending in a diphthong, asmamaū,mafai,aoai.

In speaking the voice is raised, and the emphasis falls on the last word in each sentence.

When a word receives an addition by means of an affixed particle,

the accent is shifted forward ; as alófa, love ; alofága, loving, or showing love ; alofagia, beloved . Reduplicated words have two accents ; as pálapála,mud ; ségiséyi, twilight. Compound words may have eyen three or four, accordivg to thenumber of words and affixes of which the compound word is composed ; as töfátumoánaína , to be engulfed. The articles le and se are accented. When used to form a pronoun or participle, lēand sē are contractions for le e, se e, and so are accented ; as “Olē ana le mea , the owner, lit. the (person ) whose (is ) the thing, instead of O le e ana le mea . The sign of the nominative 'o, the prepositions o, a , i, e, and the euphonic particles i and te, are unaccented ; as "O i mava , ma te o atu ia te oe, we two will go to you . Inā , the sign of the imperative, is accented on the ultima; ina, the sign of the subjunctive, on the penultima. The preposition iá is accented on the ultima, the pronoun iu on the peuultima.


The article le is both definite and indefinite ; at least it is constantly ased by the natives, where the English would require the indefinite

article ; def., le Atua , God ; indef., o le alii Pai, such an one is o

chief. On looking into such cases, it will be found that there is something definite, from a pative standpoint, which makes him use le rather than se, as Da tu mai le va'a , a canoe appears. Se is always indefinite ; ta mai se laʻau, (ut me a stick .

The article is omitted before plural nouns, thus, 'O le tagata , the man ; " O tagata ,men .


Names of natural objects, as men , trees, animals, are mostly primi

tive nouns, as 'Ole la , the sun ; 'o le tagata, the man ; 'o le talo, taro ; 'o le i'a , the fish ; also manufactured articles, asmătau , an axe, va'a, canoe, tao, spear, fale, house, etc. Some nouns are derived from verbs by the addition of either ga , saga, taga ,maga, or "aga : as tuli, to drive ; tuliga, a driving ; lulu'u , to fill the hand ; lu’utaga , a handful; anu , to spit ; anusaga, spittle ; tanu, to bury ; tanumaga , the part buried . These verbal nouns have an active parlicipialmeaniug ; as o le faiga o le fale, the building of the house. Often they refer to the persons acting, in whichB2 case they


govern the next noun in the genitive with a ; 'O le faiga a fale, cona tracted into “o le faigā fale , those who build the house, the builders. In some cases verbal nouns refer to either persons or things done by them : ' O le faiga a talo, the getting of taro, or the party getting the taro, or the taro itself which has been got. The context in such cases decides the meaning. Sometimes place is indicated by the termina tion ; as tofā, to sleep ; tofāga , a sleeping-place, a bed . Ole taʻelega is either the bathing-place or the party of bathers. The first would take o after it to govern the next noun, 'O le taóelega o le nuću , the bathing-place of the village ; the latter would be followed by a , 'O le taóelega a teine. Sometimes such nouns have a passive meaning, as being acted upon ; O le taomaga a lau, the thatch that has been pressed ; 'o le faupućega a maóa, the heap of stones, that is, the stones which have been heaped up. Those nouns which take caga are rare, except on Tutuila ;

gata'aga, the end ; Camataʻaga, the beginning; ola‘aga, lifetime; misa‘aga, quarrelling. Sometimes the addition of ga makes the signi fication intensive ; as ua ,and timu, rain ; uaga, and timuga , continued pouring . The simple form of the verb is sometimes used as a noun ; tatalo, to pray ; 'o le tatalo, a prayer ; poto, to be wise ; “o le poto, wisdom . The reciprocal form of the verb is often used as a noun ; as 'O le fealofani, o femisaiga, quarrellings (from misa ), fe'umaiga ; e.g., E lelei le fealofani, mutual love is good . A few diminutives are made by reduplication, as Paapaa, small crabs; pulepule, small shells ; liilii, ripples. Adjectives are made into abstract nouns by adding an article or pronoun ; as lelei, good ; bo ' le lelei, goodness ; silisili, excellent ; '0 lona lea silisili, that is his excellence. Many verbs may become participle-nouns by adding ga ; as sau, come, sauga, ' O lona luai sauga , his first coming ; mau to mauga , 'O le maugamuamua, the first dwelling.

Gender. Gender is sometimes expressed by distinct names : O le aliʻi, a chief.

O le tamaita'i, a lady.

O le tane, a man . O le tama, a boy. " O le toa , a cock .

O le fafine, a woman .

O le teine, a girl. O le matuā moa , a hen .

"O le po‘a, a male animal.

'O le manu fafine, a female animal. When no distinct name exists, the gender of animals is known by adding poʻa and fafine respectively. The gender of some few plants is distinguished by tane and fafine, so le esi tane ; 'o le esi fafine. No other names of objects have any mark of gender.


The singular number is known by the article with thenoun ; as 'o le tama, a boy. Properly there is no dual. It is expressed by omitting the article ,



and adding e lua for things, e toalua, two, for persons; as “o fale e lua , two houses; 'o le nu'u e toalua, two persons. The plural is known - 1. By the omission of the article ; '0 'ulu , breadfruits. 2. By particles denoting multitude, as "au , vao, mou , and motu, and such plural is emphatic ; ‘o le ‘au iʻa , a shoal of fishes ; so le vao tagata, a forest of men , i.e., a great company ; 'o le mou mea, a great numberof things ; 'o le motu o tagata , a crowd of people. These particles cannot be used indiscriminately ; motu could not be used with fish , nor "au with men. 3 . By lengthening, or more correctly doubling, a yowel in the word ; tuafāfine, instead of tuafafine, sisters of a brother. This method is rare.

Case. This is indicated by particles and prepositions. The Nominative case is shown by the particle 0 ; as 'O le fale tou te ulu atu ai, thehouse which ye shall enter. It is used before proper names ; as ‘0 Tahiti. It is omitted wben the nom . follows the verb ; Ua alu le vaʻa, the canoe is gone. But, in the verbal form , ona followed by ai lea , the noun and pronoun may either take the 'o or

omit it ; as Ona alu ai lea 'o le tamaloa ; Ona fai atu lea lo latou


Genitive. This is indicated by the prepositions a or o (soft). As to which of these should be used , as well as the pronouns lou, lau , lona, lana, lo and la matou , etc., it is difficult for a foreigner to know . There is no general rule which will apply to every case. The governing noun

decides which should be used ; thus 'o le poto 'o le tufuga, the wisdom of the builder ; 'O le amio a le tama, the conduct of the boy; upu o Fagono, words of Fagono (a kind of narrative and song); but upu a tagata, words of men . The following hints may serve in some measure to guide as to which some classes of nouns govern : I. O is used with

1, Nouns denoting parts of the body ; fofoga o le ali'i, eyes of the

chief. So of hands, legs, hair, etc. ; except the beard, which takes a , lana 'ava ; but a chief's is lona soesā .

2 . The mind and its affections ; 'o le toʻasā o le ali'i, the wrath of the chief. So of the will, desire, love, fear, etc. ; ' O le mana' o o le nu'u, the desire of the land ; 'o le mataʻu o le tama, the fear of the boy.

3. Houses, and all their parts; canoes, land, country, trees, planta 4. People, relations, slaves ; 'o ona tagata ,his people; 'o le faletua o le aliʻi, the chief's wife. So also of a son , daughter, father, etc . Exceptions. — Tane, husband ; avā, wife (of a common man ), and children ,which take a ; lana avā ma ana fanau. 5. Garments, etc., if for use ; ona ‘ofu. Except when spoken of as

tions; thus, pou o le fale, posts of the house ; lona fanua, lona nu-u, etc.

property, riches, things laid up in store.

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR . II. A is used with 1. Words denoting conduct, custom , etc.; amio,masani, tu . 2. Language, words, speecbes; gagana, upu, fetalaiga , afioga ; '0

le upu a le tama. 3 . Property of every kind. Except garments, etc., for use. 4. Servants, animals, men killed and carried off in war; lana tagata . 5 . Food of every kind. 6. Weapons and implements, as clubs, knives, swords,bows, cups, tattooing instruments, etc.

Except spears, axes, and ‘080 (the stick used for planting taro), which take o. 7. Work ; as lana galuega .

Except faiva , which takes o. Some; words take either a or 0 ; as manału, taofi, o se tali a Matautų , an answer given by Matautu ; 'o se tali Matautu, an answer given to M .* Irregularities in the use of the preposition : ( 1). Nouns denoting the vessel and its contents do not take the pre

position between them : 'o le 'ato talo, a basket of taro ; 'o le fale oloa , a house of property, or store-house. (2). Nouns denoting the material of which a thing is made : 'O le tupe auro, a coin of gold ; 'o le vaʻa ifi, a canoe of teak . (3). Nouns indicating members of the body are rather compounded with other nouns instead of being followed by a genitive : 'O le mata ivi, an eye of bone; "o le isu va 'a , a nose of a canoe ; ‘o le gutu sumu, a mouth of the sumu ; 'o le loto alofa , a heart of love.

(4.) Many other nouns are compounded in the same way : '0 le apaau tane, the male wing ; 'o le pito pou , the end ofthe post. (5 ). The country or town of a person omits the preposition : '0 le tagata Samoa, a man of Samoa ; o le Tui-Manuća, the king ofManu'a. (6 ). Nouns ending in a, lengthen (or double) that letter before other nouns in the possessive form : '0 le suā susu ; 'o le magā ala, or maga a ala , a branch road .

(7). The sign of the possessive is not used between a town and its proper name, but the nominative sign is repeated ; thus putting the two in apposition : '0 le 'a'ai “o Matautu.

Dative. Mo and ma governing this case, usually signify for ; as au mai lea ma

aʻu , give that for, or to,me. Ma also means, on account of, rules govern the use of mo and ma, as o and a in the genitive : ' O le sui

because ; sau i fale ma le la, come in , because of the sun . The same mo outou , a substitute for you . * In bis “ Short Synopsis of Hawaiian Grammar,” Professor Alexander gives the following rule for the use of these prepositions : “ O implies a passive or intransitive a living person or agent, and implies that the thing possessed is bis to make or act

relation ; a , an active and transitive one. A can be used only before a word denoting

upon, or is subject to his will ; while o implies that it is his merely to possess or use , to receive or be affected by."

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR. Accusative. accusative The or objective case follows the verb withoutany sign : Seu lou vaʻa , turn or steer your canoe. This case is governed also by the preposition i in, into, to ; ia, to persons ; and with pronouns. It mostly follows active verbs : Seu lou vaʻa i le mea nei, steer your canoe to this place. It is also used in sentences which require the addition of the verb to be,or to have, in translating them ; 'ua ia te ia le mea , the property is to him ; that is, he has it.

Vocative . This is indicated by e. Sometimes it retains the article ; le ali'i e ;

butmost commonly it is omitted . Ablative.

The ablat is gover

by mai, nai, ai, from ; i, into ; e, from ,

ive mostly with persons. ned Proper names are declined as the plural form of the common noun . That is to say, they omit the article ; thus, 'O Toga ; 'o le Toga , would mean a Tonga man. The accusative takes ia instead of i. Declension of a Common Noun . Plural. N . " le alisi, the chief. "O ali'i, or aliʻi, the chiefs. G . o or a le aliʻi, of the chief oor a ali'i, of the chiefs. A . ¿ le aliʻi, to the chief. i ali'i, to the chiefs. V . le ali'i e, O chief. ali'i e, chiefs. Ab. e le ali'i, by the chief. e ali-i, by the chiefs. i le ali'i, in the chief. mai le ali-i, from the chief. mai ali'i, from the chiefs. Examples : 'Oleall'iwamaliu mai,or, Ua maliu mai le ali'i, The chief has come. Ua fai le fale o le ali'i, The house of the chief ismade. Va maumau mea a le ali'i, The property of the chief is wasted . Tu'u ia mo le aliʻi, Leave it for the chief. Ave mo le ali'i,Give it for the chief. Alu ia i le aliti, Go to the chief. Voc. — Le ali'i e, ua e afio mai, Chief, you have come. Ab. - Da 'auina a'u e le ali'i, I am sent by the chief. Singular.

Declension of a Proper Name of a Person. N . 'O Malietoa, Malietoa.

A . ia Malietoa, to Malietoa.

G . o or a Malietoa, of Malietoa . V . Malietoa e, O Malietoa. D . mo or ma Malietoa, for Ab. e or mai Malietoa, by or from Malietoa. Malietoa.

The proper names of places are declined in the sameway as the plural of common nouns.


Some adjectives are primitive, as umi, long ; poto, wise. Some formed from nouns by the addition of a , like y in English ; as word ,

wordy ; thus, ‘ele ele , dirt ; "ele elea , dirty ; palapala , mud ; palapalā, muddy. Others are formed by doubling the noun ; as pona , a knot ;

pona pona, knotty ; fatu , a stone ; fatufatua , stony. Others are formed by prefixing faʻa to the noun ; as 'o le tu faʻasamoa , a Samoan custom . Like ly in English, the fa'a often expresses similitude ; 'o le amio fa-apuaʻa , swinish conduct. In one or two cases a js prefixed ; as

apulupulu , sticky, from pulu, resin ; avanoa, open ; from va and noa . Verbs are also used as adjectives : 'o le ala faigatā , a difficult road ; o le vai tafe, a river, flowing water ; 'o le la 'au ola, a live tree; also the passive : 'o le ali i mataʻutia .

Ma is the prefix of condition, sae, to tear ; masae, torn ; as, 'O le e'e masae, torn cloth ; Goto, to sink ; magoto, sunk ; 'o le vaʻa magoto, a sunken canoe.

A kind of compound adjective is formed by the union of a noun with

an adjective ; as 'o le tagata lima malosi, a strongman, lit. the strong. handed man ; 'o le tagata loto vaivai, a weak-spirited man .

Nouns denoting the materials out of which things are made are stone house. Or they may be reckoned as nouns in thegenitive. (See Syntax.) Adjectives expressive of colours are mostly reduplicated words ; as sinasina, white ; uliuli, black ; samasama, yellow ; enaʻena, brown ; mūmū, red , etc. ; but when they follow a noun they are usually found in their simple form ; as 'o le 'ie sina , white cloth ; 'o le pua-a uli, a black pig. The plural is sometimes distinguished by doubling the first syīlable; as sina,white ; plural, sisina ; tele, great ; pl. tetele. In compound words the first syllable of the root is doubled ; as maualuga ,

used as adjectives : “o le mama auro, a gold ring ; o le fale maʻa, a

high ; pl. maualuluga. Occasionally the reciprocal form is used as a plural; as lele , flying ; 'o manu felelei, flying creatures, birds. Comparison is generally effected by using two adjectives, both in the positive state ; thus e lelei lenei, 'a'e leaga lenā, this is good — but that is bad, not in itself,but in comparison with the other ; e umi lenei, a e puupuu lena, this is long, that is short.

The superlative is formed by the addition of an adverb, such as matuā , tasi, sili, silisilióese aʻiaʻi, na-uā ; as 'ua lelei tasi, it alone is

good — that is, nothing equals it. “Ua matuā silisili ona lelei, it is very exceedingly good ; 'ua tele naʻuā, it is very great. Silisili ese, highest, ese , differing from all others.

Nauā has often the meaning of “ too much " ; ua tele nauā, it is greater than is required.

Numerals . The cardinals are : E tasi, one. E tolu , three.

E lima, five. E ono, six. E fitu, seven .

E fā, four.

E valu , eight.

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR . E iva, nine. E fitugafulu, seventy. E sefulu , ten . Evalugafulu , eighty. E sefulu ma le tasi, eleven . E sefulu ma le lua, twelve. E twenty luafulu, or e lua sefulu , .

E tolugafulu, thirty.

E fāgafulu , forty. E limagafulu, fifty . E onogafulu , sixty.

E ivagafulu, ninety. E selau , one hundred . E lua lau , two hundred . E tolugalau , three hundred . E afe, one thousand . E lua afe, two thousand. E tolugaafe, three thousand . E mano, ten thousand .

É mano is the utmost limit. The natives do not say, e lua mano,

but all beyond mano is manomano, ilu ; that is, innumerable. Hazlewood , in his Fijian Grammar, regards the particle e as a kind of article. It would seem rather to be the verbal particle, because the numerals take ua and sa , instead of e ; as, ua valu , there are eight. When joined to nouns of time e is omitted before the numeral: ' E po

fitu, seven nights, but, E fitu o matou po, our nights are seven . “ Numerals in the Melanesian languages are used as nouns,adjectives, and verbs.” (Codrington, p. 237.) E sefulu , it is tenned ; here it is a verb.

Ordinals. "O le muamua , or "o le uluaʻi, first. O le lua, second . O le tolu , third , etc. Months are counted differently after the second . O le toluga masina , the third month . O le fāga masina , the fourth month , etc., up to the ninth, after which the ordinary counting is followed . The numeral adverbs, once, twice, etc., are expressed by atu ; as 0 le atu tasi, once ; '0 le atu lua , twice, etc. Another method is by prefixing fāʻa ; as Ua ʻou sau fā'alua, I have come twice.

Distributives are formed by prefixing taʻi; as taʻitasi, one by one, one at a time; taʻilima, five each , or by fives. Toʻa is added in counting persons ; as taʻito‘alua, two at a time, or in pairs. * * Thicknesses of things doubled, or folds, are expressed by prefixing to the cardinal number sāutua ; as sāutualua, doubled ; sāutuatolu, threefold , etc. Very many things are counted each in its own peculiar way. A knowledge of this is absolutely necessary , as being always used by the natives, and also to prevent mistakes ; thus, to say, 'o iʻa e lualau , instead of meaning two hundred , would mean only two. The following are the principal forms: Men are counted by prefixing toʻa : e toʻatasi, one; e toʻatinoa gafulu , ten .

Young pigs and cocoa-nuts by affixing oa, or in couples ; as e lua oa, four ; e fāgaoa, eight. The odd one being expressed separately; thus, o popo e onogaoa ma le popo e tasi, thirteen.



Cocoa-nuts by the score; thus, e seaea , twenty; e'luāea, forty; e tolugaea, sixty. Fowls, breadfruit, and some shell-fish ; e tasi, one (as often with other things); e luafua , two; e tolugafua, three ; e fuāgafulu , ten ; e fualua , twenty ; e fuaselau , one hundred .

Crayfish ; when ten, e tuéeagafulu ; tu'elua, twenty. Fish ; e lualau , two; e tolugalau , three ; e lauagafulu , ten ; e laulua , one thousand, Bonito (not called i'a by Sumoans, except on Tutuila ) ; 'o atu e luatino, two bonitos ; e tinoagafulu , ten . twenty ; e lauselar, one hundred ; e laulualau , two hundred ; e lauafe,

Taro, e luamata , two; ematāgafulu, ten ; ematalua, twenty, etc. Yams; units as cocoa -nuts, tens as bananas : 'O ufi a 'aulua, twenty

yams, lit. twenty stems. Bananas ; le 'aufa 'i, one bunch (or stem ) ; e lua'au, two bunches ; e 'auagafulu, ten ; e 'aulua, twenty.

Masi, in round cakes or balls (potoi); e potoiagafulu , ten ; in Alat (cooked in leaves); e fa'a'ofuagafulu, ten ;

cakes, afiagafulu, ten . Native-made dishes ‘ofulua, twenty.

4. PRONOUNS. These are declined by means of the same particles and prepositions as the noun , except the accusative, which takes the preposition used with proper names, and in addition an euphonic particle te, as Ia te aʻu , ia te 'oulua. That it is merely euphonic seems proved by its absence in kindred dialects ; e.g ., Tahitian and Niuean . The first and third persons, dual and plural, in every case take i before the pronoun ; as

oimāua . The dual is formed from lua, usually by eliminating the l, and prefixing ta ,ma, 'ou, la ; as tāua, māra , 'oulua, lõua. The plural is formed from tou , a contraction of tolu, which appears in Niue and Tongan, mautolu. To this is prefixed the particles, ta, ma , ‘ou, la ; as tātou , mātou , 'outou , lātou . The same rules which regulate the o and a before the genitive of the noun regulate also their use with the pronoun. The inclusive form ofthe pronoun is used when two or more persons speak of themselves inclusively ; as Tātou te o, let us go. The ex clusive form is used by two or more persons speaking of themselves to a third party not included : Ua mātou o mai ia te 'oe, we are come to you .

The sign of the nominative, 'o, is subject to the same rules as in the nouns except the third person . For euphony the 'o is sometimes used after the verb : Va alu 'o ia , He is gone,

5 . VERBS. Most of the verbs are primitive or underived words; as tu , to stand ; nofo, to sit. Compound verbs are readily fornied by prefixing

fa'a or fåʻale ; as fa'alealofa, to love but little, lit., like not loving. Others are formed by prefixing mata ; as mataita , angry-looking . So also with loto ; as 'ua lotoleaga , be is evil disposed . And so with many other words. Many nouns may be turned into verbs by adding the verbal particles : as loto, tlie heart ; ua loto, he desires ; ita , anger ; ua ita o ia , he is angry ; pvara , pig ; faʻapua 'a, swinish . Some few verbs are formed from prepositions; as lumana 'i, from luma ; tuunaʻi, to have passed helind, from tua, bebind ; lugaluga 'i,

from luga. The reduplication of the first syllable,as with the adjective,makes the plural. The reduplicaliou of both syllables gives a diminutive or frequentative force to the verb : Plural. Freg. and Dim . fofulo . Folo, to swallow. folofolo. gagalu . Galu, to be rough (sea). galugalu . Pati, to clap hands. pati . patipati. Velo, to dart. vevelo velovelo. Nofo, to sit. nonofo. nofonofo . reemo. Emo, to wink. "emo emo. • Umi, long.



In words of three syllables, when the last, or two last, are doubled , the first vowel is usnally lengthened ; as manatu , to think ; mānatunatu ; manuóa , mānunu'a ; manifi, mānifinifi ; savali, sävalivali.

An examination of the most common verbs in the Samoan shows that the plural is formed in nine different ways,as under : 71 reduplicate the first syllable. 61 are the same in both singular and pluralnumbers. 33 take the prefix fe and a suffix which ends in i.


A SAMOAN GRAMMAR. 22 reduplicate the second syllable.

16 reduplicate the third or fourth syllable. 11 drop a syllable. 9 make the vowel in the first syllable long. 3 reduplicate two syllables, or the entire word .

5 are of irregular formation. Some examples of the first class, which is most common - viz., those which reduplicate the first syllable - have been given . The following verbs form the plural by a reduplication of the second syllable : Singular. Plural. āulalaʻi. āula'i, to be heaped up. “äитотое. ‘āumoe, to go courting. afi, to do up in a bundle. afīfi. afio , to come, to go , etc. alaga , to call, shout. alofa, to love.

There are several monosyllabic verbs which make the plural by reduplication, such as fo, to doctor ; pl. fofo ; pā, to explode; pl. pāpā ; tu , to stand ; pl. tutū . In forming the plural the following verbs drop a syllable. But it will be seen that the singular form is reduplicated : Singular. Plural. faraitiiti, to make smaller. fa'aiti. fa-aloaloa, to stretch out. fa'aloloa . faʻamalimali, to speak with familiarity. faʻamamali. faʻan evaneva , to walk about idle.

Some verbs form the plural by taking the prefix fe, and usually by taking a suffix, which is either i, fi, ni, si, faʻi, maói, na'i, va 'i, or tani. In one case a is inserted between the usual prefix and the root (sogi, feasogi), in some the reduplication of the singular form is dropped ,

Ona is used before verbs to form a participle : E tuai ona sau , His coming is delayed.

THE PASSIVE. particles : ina , ia, a, fia, gia, lia, mia, sia , tia. Euphony regulates The passive is formed by suffixing to the root one of the following

the choice of the particle in each particular word. If the word will admit of it, it is shortened ; thus, muina, to be burnt; tuluia , from

tutulu, to be leaked upon ; sa'iliu, to be sought ; inofia, from inoino, to be demanded of ; alofagia, to be beloved ; taulia, to be fought; si-omia, to be surrounded ; 'inosia , from 'ino‘ino, to be hated ; pulutia, from

pupulu , to be mediated with . • The formation of the passive, like the formation of the plural, is very complicated . No rule can be given to guide the learner. Euphony alone seems to regulate the choice of the particle in each word. And euphony may be one thing to a native, and another thing to a European learning the language. In order to help learners, I give below lists of many of the most common verbs, except those which form the passive in ina,which are themost numerous. In the diction ary, where the passive form of a verb is not given , it may, as a rule, be taken for granted that it is in ina. The greater part of the verbs which take the causative prefix (see next section ) also form the passive in ina . In the following lists those formswhich are most largely used come first.

au, to reach to, aulia . tau , to fight, taulia . mātau, to consider ,mātaulia. tautau, to hang up, tautaulia . puna , to spring up, punalia tau, to buy or sell, taulia . (Tutuila ). As far as I can remember, only those verbs which end in tau form the passive in lia. But all verbs thus ending do not thus form the passive : faatau , to buy or sell, is faatauina ; faitau, to read, is

faitaulia , but more commonly faitauina . IX . VERBS WHICH FORM THE PASSIVE IN na. sasa 'e, to capsize, sa'ena. tete'e, to reject, te ena. tuʻu , to leave, tuóuna . suře, to lift up, suốena. The following verb lengthens the last vowel to form the passive : tatala , to untie, talā .

These two combine the directive particles mai and atu, and add the passive form a ;

Aumai (au and mai), to bring, aumaia. Avatu (ave atu ), to take, avatua . In declension, the pronoun follows the verb in the passive.

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR. Present Tense (also used as future). Singular. 1. E alofagia aʻu , I am beloved . 2 . E alofagia ‘oe, thou art beloved . 3. E alofagia 'o ia, he is beloved .



1. E alofagia i maud , } we two are beloved . E alofagia i tāua, etc. etc. Intransitive as well as transitive verbs take a passive ; as 'ua nofoia le fale, the house is inhabited.

The Causative, like Hiphil in Hebrew . This is formed by prefixing fa'a to the root ; as tupu , to grow ; fa'atupu, to cause to grow . 1. Fa'a , like fa , also denotes a diminished degree ; as lata, to feel at home; le lata, not feeling at home; fa'ale lata, to be not quite at home. 2. It is also used to mark comparison ; as fa 'atamaitiiti, to act like a child . 3 . Some of this class of verbs are used intransitively ; as faʻamalosi, to strengthen oneself. 4 . It

changes the noun to a verb, as "au, a handle; fa'a'au le toʻi, to put a handle to the axe. 5 . It changes the adjective to a verb , by making the thing to be what is expressed by the adjective ; as lēva, long ; faʻalelēva, to make long. 6 . It changes intransitive verbs to transitive, as ola, tó live ; fa'aola, to deliver. 7. Sometimes it is prefixed to verbs apparently without altering the meaning, as potopoto, fa 'a potopoto, to gather together. This and the following form are declined just as the simple, active, and passive forms of the verb : 1. Ou te fa'atupu , I cause to grow .

2. E te fa'atupu, you cause to grow . 3. Na te faʻatupu , he causes to grow .

The Intensive, like Piel. Continued action is denoted by prefixing tau ; as tausau , to endeayour to come; taufa 'atupu , to continue to cause to grow .

Intensity is also indicated by reduplication ; as mu, to burn ; mumu, to burn brightly. On the contrary, reduplication is also used to

indicate diminished action ; galu , to be rough ; galugalu, to be some what rough (of the sea ). The simple root only is doubled, as suéesuée, asiasi, but not a prefix ; savilivili, ma'anuminumi,ma'e'a'e'a. The suffix a'iña also denotes intensity of action ; faia 'ina, to be overcome, surpassed ; teleaʻina , to hurry on ; tulia'ina, to drive on .

. 24


The Reciprocal, Hithpael. This is formed by prefixing fe to the root, and affixing, according to the requirement of euphony, some one of the particles ni, a'i, faói, sa'i, taʻi,ma‘i, na 'i ; as fealofani, root, alofa , to love mutually ; femaliuaʻi, root,maliu, to go about from place to place ; felamataʻi, root, lamalama, to watch for one another ; fetaolafa 'i, root, ola, to make a fire burn brightly ; fealumaʻi, root, alu ,to go from place to place ; fetuanaći, root, tua , to sit back to back .

To take along with a person is expressed by suffixing taʻi, or saʻi ; by the preposition ma, with , as ā aʻu alu ma aʻu ; lit., I will go with as moʻetaʻi, to run with a thing ; ausaʻi, to swim with a thing. Also

me, for, I will go with it. The suffix aʻi (interposing a consonant when euphony requires) makes the meaning emphatic; as nofoaối, lafoaʻi, leoleosa'i, uligaới, alofa'i. Ma prefixed to an active verb makes it neuter ; as sasa'a, to pour out, to spill ; masa'a , spilt. Or it denotes ability ; as mafai, to be able ; 'ua mă mānava, he can breathe. The full form , however, is much better, 'Ua mafaiona mānava. * The prefix gā expresses equality or companionship ; as gātusa , to be equal; gātasi, to be together ; gāsolo, to glide along. It occurs only in the dualand plural numbers.

All these forms are declined in the same way as the simple primitive verb.

THE VERB “ TO BE.” The verb to be is expressed by the verbal particles : O aʻu ‘o le tagata, I am a man. "O oe 'o le tama, You are a boy. ' O ia 'o le teine, She is a girl. 'O i māua 'o fafine, We two are women.

O i tāua 'o taulelea , We two are young men .

O oulua 'o aliʻi, You two are chiefs. O i lāua 'o faipule, They two are councillors. 'Oimatou 'o tufuga, We (exclusive ) are carpenters . 'O i tatou 'o le “auva‘a , We ( inclusive) are the crew . O outou ‘o le "auʻoso, You are the food -gatherers. O i latou 'o tagata 'ese, They are strangers. FUTURE .

through the different persons. In asking the question , Is there ? the Is there a canoe ? Pe ai ea sou vaʻa ? Have you a canoe ? lit., whether there your canoe

relative particle ai is used with the verbal particle, as, E ai se vaʻa ? is


On Tutuila , isi is used for to be and to have : E isi sāu avā, Have you a wife ?

COMPOUND VERBS. 1. Verbs compounded from two verbs ; as, 'Ai-taoto, to eat lying down ; Moetu, to sleep standing ; Fasioti, to strike dead . 2. Verbs composed of a noun and adjectiv e ; as, Lotoleaga , to be of a bad disposition . 3. A verb , noun , and preposition ; as, Mateima'alili, to be dead with cold . noun ; as, Faleola , to be a thriving family ; Soloalofa , 4. Verb and to pine from affectionTeaó . eseina, to be away from ; Avatua, to particle as 5. Verbhawith ve it given. ; 6. Verb and adjective ; as, Fa 'atelevave, to cause to make haste.


. These are in very frequent use, and are distinguished from the passive by the pronoun being placed before the verb ; thus, Oʻu te alofaina o ia , I love him : Ma te manatua oe,We two will remember you .

Some adverbs are formed from adjectives ; as mulia 'i, last, from mulimuli ; muaʻi, first, from muamua ; matua'i, exceedingly , from matua . Adjectives themselves are used as adverbs; as 'ua ma i tele 'o ia, he is very ill. itinei, here ; o iʻinei le tama, the boy is here. i-ilā , there ; o loʻo i'ila le mea , the thing is there.

io, yonder ; ma te o ióo, we go yonder. nei, now ; ua oʻu sau nei, I have comenow. io, ioe, e, yes.

i luga,above. i lalo, under. i tala atu, beyond ; o loo i tala atu o le vai, it is beyond the river.

i tala mai, on this side . i tua , behind. i luma, before.

The last six of these take the plural form of the pronoun. In the case of the last two it serves to distinguish them from the noun ; alu i oʻu tua, go behind me. Alu i loʻu tua would mean, to get up on my back .

8. CONJUNCTIONS. 'afai, if. ana, if (past).

A SAMOAN GRAMMAR . SYNTAX . THE ARTICLE. Every noun in the singular, except proper names, must take the article, because its omission makes the noun plural; as 'o le tagata, the man ; 'o tagata, men . Nouns of multitude take the article ; as 'Ua tele le i'a i le med nei, There are many fish in this place ; 'Ua tu'ua le fa-apotopotoga, The assembly is dismissed . The article, with the name of a country, indicates a man of that country ; as 'o le Samoa , a Samoan.

The definite article is used when the noun has been previously mentioned : Exod. ii. 7, 9, “Ou te alu “ea e 'a'ami se fafine ? . . . Ona ave lea 'o le tama e le fafine, Shall I go and fetch a woman ? . . . then the child was taken by the woman. The article is used as a pronoun ; as 'o le "ua alofa, the one who loves. It is often used where the English would put the indefinite article ; as, Sa į ai le tagata 'ua gase lona lima, There was there a man who had a withered hand. It was not any man, but one par ticular individual, definitely marked by his withered hand. An appellative, used to signify a whole class, takes the definite article : Ps. 144, 3, Se a ea le tagata ? What isman ? So in describing different fishes, etc., as, 'o le anae, 'o le atule, 'o le malauli, etc., the mullet, the herring , the schnapper. Abstract nouns are used in the same way ; as, 'O le mata 'u ma le fefe, Fear and dread . The article is used with a verb to form a participial noun : '0 le sau faʻalua lenei, This is the second coming .

The definite article is used when the object is definite in the mind Sina 'o le gogo sina, It was that bird , and no other, present to her mind . The whole, totality, takes the article : 'O le atoatoa 'o le aofa'i,

of the speaker, though not previously mentioned : Ona vaaia lea e

The whole of the gathering. Also with tonu, thus making it a noun : O le tonu lenei, This is the correct (account). Proper names,derived from some peculiarity of the place or person, have the article ; as, ‘O Lepapalaulelei; 'o Letuʻituasivi. The article is used before verbs to form a participle ; as 'o le a maliu mai, the coming one. The plural is formed by changing le to e ; as o e 'ua oti, those dead. The article is omitted after the expression e fai ma ; as e fai ma taula , to become an anchor, or to be instead of an anchor. With the article before the noun, in such a connection , an indecent meaning is conveyed . The article is also used to form the participles : 'O le a aʻu alu, I am going ; 'o le na alu , the (one) who went. It is then a relative pronoun . Gen . 21, 3. The article is used with the units in counting ; e sefulu ma le fa , ten

and the four. The omission of the article in this case would makean indecent word . · The article is also used with tens and hundreds when

29 A SAMOAN GRAMMAR. coming after a larger number ; as e selau, ma le luafulu ,ma le lima, a hundred ,and the twenty, and the five. The indefinite article se is much more restricted in its use than the English a or an . When the idea is definite in the speaker's mind, the le is used ; as Sa i le nuću o Usa le tasi tagata, There was in the land of Uz a certain man . Only when the object is entirely indefinite, answering to any, is se used ; as 'Ou futia se i'a, se lautua, I will draw up a fish ,one from outside the reef. Se follows verbal particles, used to signify the verb to be, and having a comparative meaning ; as 'ua se umu le fale nei, this house is like a cooking house. Se is also used before verbs in such sentences as 'o sē fia alu , any one who desires to go ; in full, 'o se e fia alu , or 'o se tasi e fia alu . Perhaps of late use is se with lelei : E leai se lelei i le aiga nei, There is nothing good in this family. Nouns.

The singular noun is sometimes used instead of the plural. 1. Nouns ofmultitude : “Ua o mai le nuíu, The people have come.The 2. Where one stands for a class : E fa-asalaina le pagota,

criminal will be punished . The Nominative. The nominative usually follows the verb ; "ua sau le tamaloa , the man is come. When it precedes the verb it is emphatic, and requires

to be followed by a pronoun after the verb : Filoilupo ma Lemaluosamoa, Avatu i laua e fai ma oso. Filoilupo and Lemaluosamoa , Take these two for food. Nouns standing in apposition, whatever case the first may be in, all the subsequent ones are in the nominative ; as Na e tagi i lau tane, o le gogo sina, You cried out for your husband, the white tern . Every poun, word, or sentence standing as a nominative absolute

requires the‘o before it; as'O lona fa'atoʻa sau lenei, This is his first coming, or visit. The "o is inserted - 1. After the adversatives 'a and peitaʻi; 'a 'o i matou ,matou te o, as for us, we will go. 2 . In making comparisons ;

O le saito, 'o le afioga lea a le Atua , The wheat, that is the word of

God. 3. Mostly after the verbal particles, ona . . . ai lea ; as Ona fetalai atu ai lea o ia , Then he said . 4. After a verb, with the pronoun ia ; as 'ua alofa tele mai 'o ia , he loves greatly. 5. Before proper names following titles ; as ' O le aliʻi, 'o Muliaga. O le ali i Muliaga would mean ,Muliaga is a chief. The ' o is omitted - 1. Before a descriptive noun in apposition : ' Ioane le papatiso , John the Baptist. 2. It is usually omitted when

the verb precedes it; as 'Ua taugagaifo le la , The sun is towards the and the woman. 3. It is often omitted in poetry : Fagali-i ma Selea

west. 3. After the conjunctive ma; o le tane ma le fafine, the man

le fanua , Fagali'i and Selea, the land. The nominative absolute stands in the beginning of a sentence without a verb ; as 'o le Atua, e sao lava lona ala , God , his way is perfect.



The Genitive. The genitive of material is made by putting the nouns in appo sition ; 'o ipu auro, cups gold . Also nouns signifying the use to

which a thing is applied : o le fale oloa, a house of goods, in which goods are stored . Things contained in a vessel omit the 'o ; as “o le ‘ato masi, a basket of masi ; 'o le fagu uru, a bottle of oil. The noun

governing the second noun appears to be understood in such sentences as Ua fai mai a ia , for Ua faimai le upu, He spoke his word. Ua fai mai a le fafine, i.e., le upu a le fafine, The woman spoke her word . E rese le pupula 'o le tasi fetu i lo le tasi fetu . for ¿ le pupula 'o le tasi fetu ; where le and 'o is contracted into lo, and pupula understood . The shining of one star differs from the shining of another star. •I la le Atua , for ' Imataupu a le Atua, The word concerning God .

The Dative. The dative is used to signify - 1. For the benefit of, or for the use of; as au mai ma aʻu, give it for me, for my use. Au mai ia te aru would merely mean to hand over something to his care, but not necessarily for him . 2. On account of; sau ma le la , come in , on account of the sun. 3. The dative is also used to signify - on account

of, for the sake of; 'Ou te le fa'aumatia ona 'o i latou , I will not

destroy it for their sakes. The Accusative. Two or more accusatives may follow a verb ; ma e fai ai taulaga mu

ia leova lou Atua i ona luga. Sometimes one noun takes another noun after it in the accusative, with a preposition ; 'O le tala i tagata , A narrative concerning men ; 'O le mapu i sela , A whistling from breathlessness ; 'O le tino i fili, The principal enemy. The preposition is often omitted after the verb ; ' Ieova, na te foaʻi mai le poto, Jehovah, he will give wisdom .

The Vocative . This, in prose, stands in the beginning of a sentence. In poetry it end ; e, at

Faʻatali atu Tagipo, Wait, 0 Tangipo . may be placed the The e, the sign of the vocative, is ofteu omitted ; Soufuna Sina , le tama fafine ! Woman , Sina , the daughter. When two vocatives are con nected by the conjunction ma, the e is omitted after the second ; Tui e ma Tui! Tui and Tui ! Sometimes a pronoun is used in such cases before the second noun ; Ali'i e, ma outou tulafale, Chiefs, and you heads of families. In poetry the sign of the vocative is used after verbs and sentences ; as Faʻatali atu e ! Oh, wait ! The Ablative.

With, along with, is designated by theuse of the conjunction ma; as Lua te o ma ia , go you two, and he— that is, go with him ; tātou te o ma aʻu, let us go with me; tātou te o ma ‘oe, let us go with you. The use of e, by, is rarely allowed to inanimate things; 'Ua le "aina e le leona, He was not eaten by the lion ; but ‘Ua lelea i le matagi, He was carried away in the wind.



One noun follows another in the ablative, governed by ¿ ; as, ' O le vai i le fagu , The water in the bottle; 'O le ‘ato i lona lima, The basket in his hand ; 'O le manu i le laʻau , The bird in the tree. A peculiar idiom is ui a uta , to go by land . So also, nofo a tolu , seated

by three (in a canoe). "O le pu i pa, a hole in a wall, seems as though the pluralwere used for the singular. ADJECTIVES.

The adjective follows the noun, and agrees with it in number ; as o le falelelei, a good house ; 60 talo tetele, large taro. When two adjectives qualify one noun , the second takes thearticle, and thus, in fact, becomes a noun ; as ' le tagata malosi ma le “aulelei, a strung man, and good-looking. The same is the case even with a plural noun , the second being in the singular form ; 'o va'a fou ma le lelei, new canoes, and (the) good . One adjective caunot qualify two nouns, butmust be repeated with each ; 'o aposetolo paʻia, ma perofeta paʻia , holy apostles, and holy prophets. The pronominal adjective lenei may either precede or follow the noun ; as' o lenei le fale, or “o le fale lenei, this is the house. Comparison .

There is no real superlative. The idea is expressed in various ways ; E silisili “ese lava Ieova ,Jehovah is exceedingly excellent; ' O le fa'atoʻa fale tele lenei, This is the first big house ; ‘Ua tasi lava le va‘a, The canoe is unique ; “Ua leaga naʻuā le 'upu , Thesaying is too bad ; '0 le uso aupito itiitē, The brother, the last of the little ones. Sometimes it is expressed by repeating the adjective, and adding the intensive particle lava ; E leaga , leaga lava, It is bad, very bad.

Numerals. There are different ways of counting ; thus, besides those already given , e tolugafulu i le fa, thirty -four, lit., thirty in the four ; e limaga fulu ma ona tupu e fitu , e ono sefulu a'i, fifty and seven over towards

the sixty. 'o le aso lima, the fifth day; but.O le tausaga e fitu , the seventh year. With months ya is added ; ‘Olona onoga masina lenei, this is her sixth month. Numerals may either precede the noun, as e tolu aso ; or follow , as 'o aso e tolu , three days. Odd numbers are expressed as above by the phrase ma ona tupu, and that which is over ; 'o mātau e sefulu ma ona tupu e lima, ten fish -hooks, and five over.

Round numbers are expressed by 'a'ato, from "atoa , complete ; e luafulu 'a'ato, twenty complete. In things counted by couples,an odd one is expressed by fai soa ; o popo e limaga oa ma le fai soa , five couples of nuts, and an odd one. Peculiar among the distributives is the sentence "Ua taʻitasi 'uma ma alu , Each and all went. A kind of distributive is expressed families.

by a ; as, Sau a aiga, Come by



The pronoun is put in the nominative absolute for emphasis, and is then repeated with the verb ; as 'a 'o 'oe, ia 'e fai atu , but as for you , you say. The possessive pronoun precedes the noun ; as 'o lona fale, his house. In quoting the words of another, the person of the pronouns is usually changed from the indirect to the direct ; as 'Ua faimai 'o ia “Ou te alu, He told me that I should go ; very seldom 'Ua faimai 'o ia , ' E te alu 'oe, He told me, You go. When it follows the verb, the 'o of the nominative is usually dropped ; “Va sesē i mātou nei, We are in fault. On the contrary, it is always used with ia, third person singular. E le toe sau lava 'o ia , He will not comeagain . Euphony seems to direct this usage. The relative is often understood in Samoan : ' le la 'au lea na au lia'iina , That is the plant I pulled up. In this case the passive ter mination seems to supply the place of ai. More commonly it is expressed by ai : '0 le mea lava lenei na a 'u mana'o ai, This is the thing which I wanted .

ole mea lea, therefore, and se a le mea , wherefore, are always followed by ai after the verb ; as O le mea lea na aʻu sau ai, That is why I came. The interrogative pronoun ismuch used instead of direct negation : Ou te alu 'o le ā ? What should I go for ? instead of, I will not go ; E iloa e ai ? Who knows? I don't. The interrogative pronoun 'o ai is used in asking a person's name : '0 ai lona igoa ? lit.: Who is his name?


Generally a verb agrees with its nominative case in number. 1. Exception. Nouns of multitude take a plural verb ; as lua mamate le lafu , the herd are dead . 2. In some cases the verb agrees with its object in number ; as Ia " e tutuli ia te i lātou, Drive thou them ; here the verb is plural.

To accompany or do something with another is expressed by the dual or plural verb ; as Lua te o maima Mareko, lit., You two come and Mark ,

bringMark with you ; Tā te nonofo,lit., Let us two sit,sit with me ; Pe tātou te o 'ea ma i mātou ? Shall we (inclusive) go with us (exclusive) ? Will you gowith us ? Pe tātou te o ‘ea ma outou ? May we go with you ? The usual historic tense is expressed by 'ua. Very often in nar rating a tale “o will be used , as if bringing the events before the hearer's eyes. Na tago < le lauulu 'o le aitu, ua ave le tasi fuafuati lauulu ,ua nonoa, He took hold of the hair of the aitu, he took one lock and bound it. Peculiar idiomsare, 'Uamālūlo , He is well-- that is, he has recovered from sickness ; O mālõlõ 'ea ? Is he well - - that is, does he continue in a state of health ?

Verbal Particles. "Ua is used to signify the present with neuter verbs ; as . Va tagi

lo‘u loto, Myheart weeps ; 'Ua 'ou tula 'i atu , I am standing up ; 'Ua ou nofo i'inei, I am sitting here.



Na and sa mark the imperfect tense ; as Na ‘ou le fai atu “ea ia te 'oe ? did I not tell you ? na oti, 'a 'ua toe ola mai, he was dead, but is

alive again . Sa is very rarely to be found in old tales, etc., “ 0 le Pitofau o Tur sa lavalava mai.” There seems to be little or no difference between the two particles. E , besides marking the future, is also used with verbs signifying quality or condition, without respect to time; as E silisili leova , Jehovah is very great ; E lelei le poto, wisdom is good . The third person singular changes the pronoun ia into na for euphony : na te le mafai, he is unwilling. la is also sometimes heard :

la te lavatia tai tetele, he is able to rective high tides (i.e. number of visitors). Ona before the verb, followed by ai lea after the verb, is used in a dependent sentence, and is either past or future, according to the tense preceding it ; as “Ua sau 'o ia , ona matou o mai ai lea , he came, and then we came; ' A sau o ia , ona matou o mai ai lea , if he comes, or

when he comes, then we will come.

The Imperative. Inā is used in positive commands: ia is precative; as inā sau ia , come; ia 'e sau , do you come. For intensity the verb is repeated ,

followed by ia ; alu, inā alu ia, or alu ia, inā álu , go, begoue. The future tense is also used as an imperative ; e te alu lava oe, you shall go. The formal inā and ia are often dispensed with ; o ia outou , go you . Especially is this the case when the verb is repeated ; o, inā 0, go, be off. Peculiar is sau, inā alu , come, go.

The Infinitive. The infinitive is rather confined in its use ; 'Ou te alu e ta 'ele, I go to bathe ; but also, 'ou te alu, ‘ou te taóele, I go, I bathe. More common than the infinitive is the use of particles, ia , “ina ia, ona ia making a subjunctive ; as na ia fa aeaina le 'ua mativa, "ina ia fa-anofo, & c., he exalted him that was poor, that he mignt cause him to sit ; 'a 'ua lemafai o ia ona faʻalogo ia te ia, but he was not willing that he should hear hiin . The infinitive sometimes takes i instead of e ; as 'ou te musui alu , I will not go, lit., I am unwilling in (in the matter of) going.

Directive Particles. Verbal directives are mai, atu, ane, ifo, aʻe, ese. Maiaftır the verb denotes direction towards the speaker ; as o mai ia te a 'u , come to me.

Atu is direction from the speaker ; o atu ia Iosefa, go to Joseph . A nice distinction, not readily comprehended by foreigners, is found in ‘a'ami atu , to go and fetch from a distance, in order to bring it. So

'a 'ami mai, to fetch from the speaker, in order to take somewhere ;

also difficulty is found with fa'atau mai, to buy; faʻatau atu, to sell; *Ua iloa mai i tatou , they can see us ; “Ua 'ou iloa atu le vaʻa, I can



see the canoe; *Ua lagona mai i tātou e i lātou , they hear us ; 'ua 'ou lagona atu , I can hear. In describing boundaries, if the speaker is within the bounds, he will say, E pau mai (Lealatele), e pau mai ( Safotu ]. If he is outside the bounds then, E pau mai [Safotu ], e pau atu i [Sasina ]; the nearest, mai ; the farthest off, atu. Ane is indirect, along, aside; 'ua alu ane i le ala, he has gone along

in the read ; . Ua alu une i le fale, he has gone aside to the house. Ifo is direction downwards; as E o ifo é lātou i le tuʻugamau, they go duwn to the grave ; Se*i 'ou ‘ar ifo, let me eat down, is peculiar.

Ae is direction upwards ; as 'Va lele a'e le manu, the bird has flown up.

* Ese is away, away from ; o 'ese, begone. Doubling it makes it mean in different directions; *Ua o 'ese 'ese, they have gone one in one

wa), one in another.

Accusative withouta Preposition . Many verbs in Samoan (“ the definite transitive ) gorern an accusa

tive directly, without any intervening prepusition : as “Ua na au mai le tala lelei, he brought good news. Verus signifying to lay up in store, to lay aside, tu put off, thus take the accusative ; *Ua to “ese lona 'ofu, he bias put off his garment. Definite transitive verbs onit the article bufore the noun governed by them . Vert 8 of plenty ; as ‘ua destitute of goods. Verbs of eating ; *Ua 'ai talo, he eats taro ; of buy ing and selling : 'Ua faʻatau 'oloa, he sells goods; of making or building : 'Ua fai fale,he builds houses ; of journeying : 'Ou te alu malaga , I am going a journey. “Ou te alu i le malaga would mean , I am going with a party of travellers. Adding the article makes the

mau talo, there is abundance of taro. Verbs of scarcity : 'ua oge mea ,

object definite ; as e fai le fale, to build the house. Ta‘i suffixed m ans with, asmoeta'i, to run with. Terbs with two Accusatives. Some verbs take two nouns after them , one in the accusative, and the other governed by a preposition . Amongst these are all causative verbs ; as Ua lātou fa'atumuina le nuru i le sauā, they filled the land with oppression . Also verbs meaning to anoint, to plant, to stone, to feed. Sometimes each objective has a preposition , sometimes only one : \Ua na fa aʻofu ia te ia i le ‘ie vavae, he clothed him with cotton cloth ; "Ua ufiufi lona ulu i le pulou, he covered his head with a hat. The repetition of a verb followed by its opposite denotes continu

ance ending in its opposite ; vevela, vedela,maʻulili, after being hot it becomes cold. The alternation is denoted by reversing the order ; maʻalili , ma‘alili, vevela , after being cold it is hot. Very peculiar is the use of a noun with a verbal particle ; as 'Ou te se teine ‘ea ? am I a girl ? 'Ua ʻo Toe, it is (like ] Toe. Passive verbs take after then, the nominative, and the agent in the ab ative ; as Ia fa‘atoina į mātou e ia, he has cursed us, or, we are cursed by him .



Verbs having a passive form are made active by placing the pronoun

before them : Ia outou tuóuina atu outou i le Atua , yield yourselves to manatua le aso sapati, 'e te fa'apa-iaina , or, e fa-apaʻia ai, or \ina ia fa‘apa‘iaina, Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.

God . This form of the verb renders unnecessary the relative ai ; la 'e

Participles. These, like verbs, take a noun after them governed by a preposition : o Wo‘alaga fiafia lo‘u loto ma loʻu tino i le Atua soifua, My heart and my flesh are joyfully shouting to the living God . The bare participial particle ‘o lošo is used for the verb to be ; .O loʻo ia te ‘oe lona malosi, His strength is in Thee. The use of the participle is confined to that which is now actually in progress ; as 'o loʻo sau, he is now coming — that is, he is on the way. Then when he or it has actually come, 'ua is added ; 'O loʻo 'ua ua, it is now raining. The future participle is expressed by “o le ā ; as 'ó le a faraóumatia le 'a'ai, the city is about to be destroyed . A peculiar use of 'o loro is in reference to the existence of God : ' O loʻo soifua le Atua , God lives. Other attributes take e : E poto lava o ia , He is wise .

Very many verbs are used also as adverbs ; as 'Ua tu sipa, it stands slantingly ; 'Ua moe nofo, he sleeps silting.

Particles. Particles of negation : e leai (like the Hebrew particle), signifies non -existence ; as e, leai se lelei, there is nothing good . It is also used for denial, No ! E te fia alu ? E leai, do you wish to go ? No. It takes the verbal particles ; as sa leai, there was not ; 'ua leai, there is not. E leʻi leai is used in a diminutive deprecatory way ; thus, in answer to the question , Have you brought a payment ? answer, Ele i leai. Leʻi besides being used with the perfect tense, has also themeaning “ not yet ” (nondum ) ; E le'i alu le vara , the canoe has not yet gone, leaving it to be implied that it will go at some future time ; 'ua le alu , it has not gone, and may not go at all. A negative question is answered by an affirmation ; as 'Ua le alu 'ea le malaga ? Has not the party left ? ioe, 'Ua le alu, yes, it has not gone ; or, e leai, 'ua alu . ' 'Aua is prohibitive ; it is strengthened by ne'i; as "aua ne'i alu , do not by any means go. Nei is also used alone : ne'i e alu , lit. lest you go. It is strengthened by mao : Nei e mao alu , beware lést you go. Le does not require the repetition of the verb in the second clause of a sentence ; as Ia outou saʻili i le lelei, 'a e le .o le leaga, seek ye the good , but not the bad . Particles of limitation are na 'o, tau ; as na 'n manu , na ave ma mātou , only the cattle we took for ourselves. Tau is more subjective in its meaning than na ‘o, and refers to the views and wishes of the speaker ; Tauina 'e fa 'amalosi, only be thou strong.

Optative particles are e, fia ; as E ! ana fa-alogo mai lou nuću, O D 2



thatmy people had hearkened ; fia oti ! O that Imightdie ! E ! fia aluA, Iiswish gone. particle in some proper names ; as Falealupo, alsotoanbe infix

house of lupo ; Fatualavai, the stone and the lavai.

Causative Particles. Auā. Sentences beginn ng with a causative particle in other

languages are translated positively in Samoan ; as Na oulua le fa 'atuatua ia te a'u . . . 'o le mea lea , & c., ye did not believe me, there fore, & c. Should the senten e not be followed up by therefore, then auā must be expressed at the beginning : auā 'ua 'e faʻatau 'oe ia te 'oe . . . faʻauta, & c., because you sold yourself . . . belold , & c. Ona ‘o, for the sake of, differs from the former word in that it is placed before a noun to point out that on account of which something is done ; as ' E te fa'a'umatia ‘ea le 'a'ai 'uma ona 'o le toʻalima ? Wilt thou destroy all the city on account of the five ? 'Ina ia is placed hefore verbs to indicate that something is done in order that the event denoted by the verb may take place : 'Ou te 'ai ai le manu a loʻu atali'i, ‘ ina in ‘ou faʻamanuia ia te 'oe, I will eat of my son's venison , in order that I may bless you . Ina neói is used to mark negative causality : 'ina ne'i malaia ‘oe i le sala a le nu 'u , lest you should perish in the punisiment of the place . Ner is also often found without the 'ina ; as Ne'i 'on iloa le leaga e oʻo i loʻu tamā, lest I should behold the evil that will come to my

father. Atonu expresses partly a doubt,inil partly a lope to the contrary, like perhaps in English ; Atonu 'ua agasala oʻu atali'i,May be my sons have sinned . Ai lara indicates miore certainty with the doubt; ai lava ‘ua moe ia, probably he is asleep . Atonu would he improper here,

as it would express the conviction of the speaker that such probably wasA'itheisfact. a particle of instrumentality. It follows the verb, and indicates the instrument by which anything is effected . It also caused the relative ai to be dispensed with : Au mai le toʻi e vavae a'i le la‘au , bring an axe with which to cut the word in two. Multiplicatives are formed with the cusative ſa'a ; as, fa'alima, five times : ' O lo u sau fa 'alima lenci, this is my fifth coming. Particles of Consequence.

Farapca, though usually employed to point out similarity or con formity of one object or action to another, also intimates cons' quence ; as,Gen . i. 7, i le ‘wa fa-apea lava ; and it was so. Gen . xxix. 26, E le fa-apea le tu i lu mātou nu'u , such is not the custom in our country. It is used , priceded by pei, in the former sertence for the purpose of making a comparison : E pei 'o u fanafana i le lima o le toa ; e faʻapea lava, & c., like arrows in the hand of the warrior, so, & c. - " O le mea lea followed by ai, lit. it is that thing, or, therefore, points out an event as a consequence of a preceding event: Num . xx . 11, Na

culuu le fa'atuatua ia te aru , . . . 'o le mea lava lea lua te le faʻaoʻotia



ai, & c., you (two) did not believe in me, therefore you shallnot bring iu , & c.

Conditional particles are 'afai, ana, 'a , pea . Afai is future, and introduces tie condition on which the fulfilment of the event depends. Exod. xix. 5, ‘Afai tor te matuā fa'alogo mai i lo u leo, ona fui lea outou ma 'oloa tāua. It ye will hearmy voice, then shall you become a peculiar treasure. Ana is past time; Ana le mai le Atua lena tagata, na te le mafaia, If thatman were not from God, he could not. Both 'afai and ana may be used in a subjunctive sense : 'Afai ana outou tāuaso, if ye were blind. — John ix . 33, 41. ' A is used like 'afai; as 'a ua, mātou te le 7, if it rains we shall not go . Ai supposes a case which may most likely occur; as Aise le tali i le malo o le Atua , Should any one not receive the king lo ii of God . Se anoa (utinam !), O that! Se anoa ! ana i ai lo‘u alisi, O that my lord were.

Pe a differs from a and afai, in that it refers to the timeof an action , when ; Pe a 'e fa'atau se ‘au auna, when you buy a servant, Exod. xxi. 2. Then v. 3, Pe afaina sau ; the afai is rendered into the past time by adding na, if he came. Ana suu would mean, Hal he come; meaning he did not do so. Auā introduces an account of the cause of a preceding statement; as Ona 'ou fefe ai lea , auā 'ua 'ou le lavalavā, Then I was afraid , because I was naked . Peculiar is its use by way of remons'rance, on hearing a false statement : 'o le ā le mea na ia le sau ai? why did he not come ? auā, na sau , lit. because he did come, or, yes but, he did coine. E ui lava is always in the antecedent,nr.ver in the relative sentence. I will go although it rains, must be transposed thus; E ui ina ua , ou te alu , although it rains, I will go.

Adversatives are ‘a, peitaʻi, peisa'i. These are emphatic, and stand with a noun or pronoun in the nominative absolute ; as E le 'o outou, na "auina mai a 'u 'i'inei, 'a 'o le Atua, It was not you that sent me here, but God. It may also precede a verb ; as 'ua le ola Napoti,'u 'ua oti, Naboth is not alive, but dead. It is often used in Samoan

where a conjunctive is used in English ; as Le ali'i e, 'ou te alu ; 'a ua le alu , sir , I go, buthe went not. Conjunctives are ma, foi, ‘atoa, amaise. Ona lalafi ai lea 'o Atamu ma lana avā, Then Adam and his wife hid themselves. Ma always causes the rejection of a preposition : Inā 'e toe foʻi atu i lou nuóu ma lou aiga, return to your country and your family. It connects two or more verbs relating to the same subject ; Ma connects nouns which are subjects of the same proposition ; as

as Ia uluola, ma ia tupu tele, ma ia tumu ai le sami, multiply,and increase, and fill the sea. Sometimes the verbal particle is rejected aftermá ; 'Ua mafu ma louā, it ismusty and disagreeable. Ma, when it connects adjectives, changes the second to a roun ; as 'O le tagata tino (ese ma le puta , a man tall and stout, lit. stoutness. Thus it apparently treats the first clause as a compound noun, to which the second is made to conform . In order to connect sentences together,

foʻi is used ; thus, Sa ufitia foʻi le moana i le pouliuli: na fegaoioiai,


A SAMOAN GRAMMAR . fo'i le Agaga. The deep was covered with darkness ; the Spirit also moved . When there is consequence, or dependence of one sentence on the other, they are connected by ona . . . ai len . In a list of names the conjunction is sometimes expressed only before the last : ' Semu, 'o Humu, ma Iafeta , Sbem , Ham , and Japhet. Or nouns may be coupled together, and 'atoa with ma and foʻi , will then be used to gather up the last of the list; O le lagi ma le lalolagi,'atoa foʻi ma mea 'uma 'o i ai, The heavens and the earth , together also with all things in them . Amaise has much the same meaning as 'aton , and is sometimes joined with foʻi ; Ia 'e alofa ia te ia , umaise le fanau , have compassion on him , and also the chillren .

I le answers to and then ; Se'i mulumulu foʻi o oulua vae ; i le

alausu ai, wash your feet; and then start early.

Disjunctives. Po, or, is used before nouns, pronouns, Po o ai na te alu , po o aʻu , po o Sina ? Who shall go, I or Sina ? and also before 'ua. Va sau ea, po ua ma'i ? Has he come, or is he sick ? Pe is used befvre verbs : De musu o ia pe leai ? Is he unwilling or not ?

Interrogatives. A question is shown by the particle ea occurring early in the sentence ; as 'O a'u ea le leoleo o lo‘r U80 ? Am I my brother's

keeper ? Sometimes a question is known by the tone of the voice only .

Pe before verbs, with or without ‘ea is also used in asking ques tions : pe matou te o atu 'ea ? shall we go ? Before 'o and fua , po is used ; as po o 'ai ? who ? po 'ua o mai ? have they come? Besides these there are interrogative pronouns ; as 'o ai ? 'o le fea ? i ni ā ? and also interrogative adverbs : pe fa'apefea ? how ? 'o fea ? where ? 'o anafea ? when ? (past); afea ? when ? (future ) ; ai se ā ? why ? 86 ā ? what ? maifea ? whence ? In answering a question , the verb of the questioner must always be repeated ; as 'e te alu afea ? when will you go ? Ou te alu taeao, I go to -morrow .

Emphatic Particles. lava, even to him . La : Faauta la ia ! Behold them ! Collocation . In a simple sentence the verb precedes : then follows the nominative, or, if a passive verb, the ablative (the agent), then the accusative, Lava , indeed, very , even : Ua oti lava, He is indeed dead. Ia te ia

then a second accusutive; as Na faia o le Atua le lagima le lalolagi i beginning. In a relative sentence, the relative prononn ai precedes the nominative to the verb ; as 'ua silasila atu i ai le Atua, God beheld it. The conjunction foʻi follows the verb : 'ua fetalaimai foi

le "amataga . Were made by God the heavens and the earth in the

le Atua, God spake also. Únless a nominative absolute begins the sentence, in that case the foʻi follows it ; 'o a'u foʻi, ou te alu atu , I

also, I will go.




The adverb is often expressed by a noun joined to the verb by the preposition ma ; as Na ia tautala mai ma le ita , lit. be talked with anger, he talked angrily. Sometimes the adverb comes between the verb and its directive particle ; as 'ua potopoto “uma mai, they are all gathered. Or it comes after : as 'ua alu atu soʻo ʻo ia , he went constantly .

Sometimes the adverb precedes the verb, but more commonly it follows; as 'Ua vave oti, he is soon dead ; Va savali taʻalise, he walks quickly. Sometimes it is expressed by two verbs : 'Ua loa ona sau, he came long ago, lit. it is long his coming, or since he came. PREPOSITIONS.

The preposition is omitted after the conjunction ; as E pule 'o ia i lo lagi ma le lalolagi, He shall rule in the heaven and the earth .

CONJUNCTION. A adversative is often followed by a nominative absolute ; 'a 'o a'u , 'ou te le alu , but as for me, I will not go. CHIEFS' LANGUAGE. There is a large number ofwords used to chiefs and strangers ; and to use any other when addressing such is equivalent to an insult. These words are never used by a chief speaking of himself. The chiefs' language is not confined to chiefs, but is also used in courtesy to any strangers. Amongst these are words used according to the rank of the person addressed ; e.g. tausami, to eat, - a respectful term to a “ tulafale ; ” taumafa - to a chief ; taute- to the highest chief. Ua maliu , he is

gone; Ua folau, he is on a voyage. All members of the chief's body : Ua gasegase le a'ao o le ali-i, The arm of the chief is weak . His actions of body or mind : Ua toasa le alii i lona nu 'u , The chief is angry with his people. His dwelling : Ua afio le alii i lona maota , The chief has gone to his house. All these have differentwords to those used of common people. Offensive weapons or tools: Vaeane ali-i, ua li 'iloa loʻu faʻasagaese, Asking pardon of chiefs, I have lost my axe. Marriage, disease, death : ua gasolo ao, the clouds have passed along ; and burial - o le a fale-lauasi le ali-i, the chief is about to be buried ; all have special words. The greatest families have each a special word for the death of a member of that family. If a chief adopts a common name of anything, that word ceases to be used by that chief's adherents, and is changed for another word : Thus, pe'a, a bat, is manulagi, a bird of the air, in Peʻa 's tribe, & c. So also the names of gods were not allowed by their worshippers to be used in common . Vave was changed to taʻalise , titi to noa , fiti, to tapena .


A SAMOAN GRAMMAR. Other Examples of Chiefs' Language.

Ua alāla le alii i lona maota , The chief is sitting in his house. Ua falafalanaći le aliʻi, The chief is reclining. Ua taumamafa aliʻi, The chiefs are eating. Ua taute le tupu , The king is eating. Ua 'au'au i le taufa , He is bathing (lit. swimming ) in the water. Ua afio i lona uiuiga, He has gone in his canoe. Sauni ia le tofāga , Prepare his bed . Auă le toia le va, ua toʻa le ali-i, Don 'tmake a noise, the chief sleeps. Ua tulei mai le afioga a le tupu , The chief speaks. Va i le maota le masiofo o le tupu ma ona alo, The wife of the king and his children are in the house.

Uavery malumalu ao le faatafa o le alii The sickness of the chief is great.

SAMOAN POETRY. THE Samoan has many different kinds of poetical compositions. Metre is altogether unknown , but the best kinds of poetry are in rhyme. They are mostly responsive, each verse being commenced by a few persons, and this is called the usu ; the remaining half being taken up in chorus, and with strict attention to time, by all present ; it is called the tali. Popular songs on passing events are,as in other lands, very common .

They are sung to the stroke of the paddles when on a journey, or when engaged on any work requiring united exertion.

At the time when religion was beginning to take root, the lovers of darkness thus expressed their regrets at the prospective loss of their pleasures : Tini, tinio , tinio ! Maumau o mea faamālama, A tiaʻi e le malo.
