owo he aha kēlā?
The dictionary definition of he is somewhat mangled. I don’t understand what it’s supposed to mean.
He is the indef. art. "a(n)":
He kanaka maika'i ia= He's a good person.
He aha?= what is it?
The verb "be" is implied, and when used with a possessive, "have" is implied:
He ka'a ko'u= I have a car.
is the indefinite article here to specify that we are asking about a singular thing? Rather than, "what are those?"
Also, those examples are very helpful! Mahalo, ahau.3! :D
Someone mentioned before that in Hawaiian, you always have to use a noun marker in front of nouns. So if the noun marker isn't ka/ke/nā for definiteness, you have to use another one, in this case he for indefiniteness.
Oh, that makes sense! Thank you very much! :D
Do you know if Duo will be expanding their Hawaiian Course? I'd really like for them to do so.
How do you say -What is it?-?
He aha ia?
