Completed the Hawaiian tree!
Found a couple of errors in the last lesson:
Sentence: Aia ke kelepona ma ka lumi moe? The ACCEPTED response: "Is the phone IS the bedroom?" ("in" was not available in the word bank)
Sentence: Aia 'oe i ka lumi kuke? I was sure "lumi kuke" was a kitchen, and indeed it was, but "kitchen" was not available in the word bank. I'd guess I should have switched to the keyboard.
For those who finished the sapling: are you any wiser on the grammar (not being sarcastic)? I can finish it and make it gold, but I don't see a point if I don't understand bacis grammar - like wordorder, cases...? I can just do skills until I memorise correct order, but that's not the goal for me.
Any good links to help with it? I searched and found nothing useful so far.
It's of Austronesian origin so the sentence structure can be manipulated slightly. As far as getting it to a T, don't bother. Getting the opportunity to speak olelo hawaii to a local speaker or someone from Ni'ihau is quite rare.
As far as your dilemma goes, your answer cost money and can be answered by purchasing a Na Kai Ewalu book. I prefer to use my Mary Kawena Pukui Proverbs, since its easier to get. Just remember that the sentence structure usually follows an x=y structure.
