The word is found in all Polynesian languages and always with the same basic meaning of “love, compassion, sympathy, kindness”, although the use in Hawaii has a seriousness lacking in the Tahitian and Samoan meanings. Mary Kawena Pukui wrote that the “first expression” of aloha was between a parent and child. The Oxford English Dictionary defined the word as a greeting like “welcome” and “farewell”, using a number of examples dating back as far as 1798 and up to 1978 where it was defined as a substitute for “welcome”.[citation needed]

Lorrin Andrews wrote the first Hawaiian dictionary, called A Dictionary of the Hawaiian Language. In it, he describes aloha as “A word expressing different feelings: love, affection, gratitude, kindness, pity, compassion, grief, the modern common salutation at meeting; parting”. Mary Kawena Pukui and Samuel Hoyt Elbert’s Hawaiian Dictionary: Hawaiian-English, English-Hawaiian also contains a similar definition. Anthropologist Francis Newton states that “Aloha is a complex and profound sentiment. Such emotions defy definition”. Anna Wierzbicka concludes that the term has “no equivalent in English”.
