Works both ways. But yours is more popular. I use "Aia i hea..." as well. :)

They are similar but the etymology of the two do not hint that they are related. Perhaps farther back in time they came from the same root but we do not have that info at this time.

I wonder if the UH Lexicon Committee has adopted "kelepona" to mean telephone as well as cell phone. Both seem like perfect loaner words.
