I wrote "Eat, Food" ('Ai) like it told me to. But i got it WRONG! WHY?!?!?!?!?
That is pidgin, not olelo Hawaii. I believe its origins are the Chinese language.
I just got an update on Android, and now I get audio on some Hawaiian words (including this one). Try updating the app.
I am hard of hearing an using the app. Can anyone explain the difference sound wise between. Ae and ai?
Yeah, and it's interesting learning this as a Māori speaker. The apostrophe seems to indicate wherever a 'k' is in Māori. Kai for food/eat and āe for yes! I think this is the same for canoe, waka and wa'a.
Yeah, Hawaiian had a regular sound change from Proto-Polynesian of /k/ → /ʔ/, as well as /t/ → /k/ whereas in Māori, the original /t/ and /k/ stayed the same
