The State of Hawaii is an archipelagic state of the United States located in the central Pacific Ocean, south of Alaska, southwest of the continental United States, and north of Tahiti. From a physiographic and ethnographic perspective, this archipelago is frequently reckoned as part of the Polynesian subregion of Oceania.

This state encompasses nearly the entirety of the volcanic Hawaiian Island chain, which is made up of hundreds of islands spread over 1,500 miles (2,400 km). Of these, the eight largest islands are considered the "main islands" and are located at the southeastern end of the archipelago. In order from the northwest to southeast, they are Niihau (Ni?ihau), Kauai (Kaua?i), Oahu (O?ahu), Molokai (Moloka?i), Lanai (Lana?i), Kahoolawe (Kaho?olawe), Maui, and Hawaii (Hawai?i). The last is by far the largest, and is often called the "Big Island" or "Big Isle" to avoid confusion with the state.

The state was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959, making it the 50th state. Its capital is located in its major city, Honolulu on the island of Oahu. The most recent census puts the state's population at 1,211,537.

Some residents of Hawaii use the Hawaiian glottal stop in their English. (Credit: Wikipedia).
