The only difficult part of pronunciation in Tahitian is the glottal catch. This is when two vowels are separated by an apostrophe, indicating a short pause. This is an important characteristic, because the break can change the meaning of a word entirely. For example, the Tahitian word hoe (ho-ay) means paddle, but ho’e is the number one. Phonetically they’re pronounced the same way, but when saying ho’e there is a hesitation after the first syllable.  #Tahiti
