        Um, yes, VSO. I'm blaming that on Claritin too...

        I'm using two books

"Spoken Hawaiian", Samuel H. Elbert, ISBN 0870222163
   Along with "Pocket Hawaiian Dictionary".

The others are the text books which one can order here:
I have all three books and the tape. (They ask only $17 for the whole set.
That's less than the other book alone.)
