Is there a reason why "girl" is one word while "boy" is two?

kaikamahine is a sort of contraction if you will.

It would be really helpful if there was an audio component available. Especially considering this language was exclusively spoken for hundreds+ years. Is the translation of girl ka-ika-mahine, kaika-mahine or another variation?

This course is available in the apps, but they rushed the launch a little and have been slowly adding audio since the launch.

That's what the top of this sentence discussion says. I'm curious why you have repeated it here.
