The correct words

Re: The pronunciation of Samoan words 

Ole upu ‘nofoialo’ is very foreign and dead wrong. 

It seems to have influenced us from out east. Correct word is ‘nofoaalo’. Siosiomiaga is a not right. Correct word is siosiomaga. 

Faapelea yuck! Ole sa’o ole upu ole ‘faapea’. Faafetai le taulagalaga i lenei mataupu taua.
