How do you spell "pinae"?

Asked by zaid (216points) April 27th, 2008

It’s the hawaiian word for girl (i think).

Pinae? I thought a girl was “wahine”

there is another word that when I’ve heard it, sounds like ‘pinae’.

That’s pinay, and it’s Tagalog (one of several languages of the Phillippines); it is the feminine form of pinoy, which is slang for what filipinos call each other as a term of endearment.

You’re welcome; for those unfamiliar with the word it sounds like [pin-EYE].

zaid's avatar

soundfreak, isn’t it more like peen-EYE?

either way-actually yours is more accurate though..
