I'm quite confused by the E thing does it mean you?
In this sentence, the "e" preceding "Kawika" is the direct address marker, similar to the vocative case in Slavic languages and in Latin.
The "e" preceding "ʻōlelo" is the imperative marker.
Thanks so much. Here is a Lingot.
holy ❤❤❤❤ how many languages do you know :0
Make that two.
Mahalo! Loaʻa iā ia he lingot!
I have the same question...
I completely Agree I don't Get It!
How do you apply the kahako over o in 'olelo?
I am mad with the e
I cannot type the o with a line over it
I can hold down my 'o' on the Google keyboard on my phone, and I get options, including the line over it
I hold down o but have tons of other options... not the one i need though
So I have two questions:
1) What does the "e" mean, and how do I know when to use it?
2) Is using a command the nature of the Hawaiian language?
Can I say "E Kawika, E ‘ōlelo?" Or is E not a particule like I'm assuming it is?
Yes. You are calling Kawika with E and ordering him to speak with the second e.
even when i long press my keyboard for "o" options, i do not have one with a kahako, anyone have advice pls
I downloaded the Google keyboard from the app store (free) and it has kahako options
If I were to omit the 'e' here, would that change the meaning of the sentence?
Yes, because the E is vital to show either a direct address, or a command.
Yo so how do I put the - over the top of the o? I tried pressing and holding over the o but I dont have one with a straight line?
I dont understand why they have the "kawika" and "ka'iulani" what does it mean?!
They are names. :o)
They dont even tell you what it means in the beginning
I'm confused by the E thing
Huh. Cannot do da kine kahako.
Confused by the e
does ō have a different pronunciation from a regular o?
Simply what does the E or e mean?
E 'olelo means speak? When did they teach this in lesson 1???
I know 5 languages
English, Spanish, Navajo, Latin & I am learning Hawaiian now!
I cannot get the line over the o...
It is understand if only I just say E ʻōlelo Kawika or it's always used both e? E ʻōlelo e Kawika
Where do I get Hawaiian keyboard? I cant find it. What is Hawaiian in Hawaiian?
