How would you say, "Grandpa is my policeman?"
I'm just starting with Hawaiian. There appears to be no verb in this sentence. Is it just understood? ...upon further investigation, I see most sentences don't have a verb. I will continue following the lessons and see what I'm able to pick up.
Hawaiian has no "to be" verb, so many times, in equivalence sentences like this one, there is no verb. It is just understood that the two different nouns are the same. XY. -> X is Y.
I hope that makes sense.
Grandfather was marked wrong
Need to add "grandfather" as the appropriate English term for tūtū kāne.
Grandfather should be included in this one
Hello, update this duolingo
Also should accept grandad. Not sure, but think that other quotations have accepted grandad.
This is one tough grandma, she isn't messin around!
was there ever an original hawaiian word for grandparent since "t" is not a hawaiian letter?
