-176- Pu’ukaula


Verb. From Hawaiian.

“To set up your husband or wife as part of a stake whilst gambling”


Yet another Hawaiian word on this list… I could do 365 of purely Hawaiian words if I put my mind to it!¬†Interestingly, many sources put this word down as using the wife only as part of the bet, but a few Hawaiian dictionaries seem to point out that it can be either person in the relationship…
