"Where are you from?"
Translation:No hea ʻoe?
I m a very basic level learner. It appears that verbs are often omitted from the sentence structure, as they are understood. Direct translation of No hea 'oe?/ From where you? (Omitting 'are'). Or, another example, 'O wai kou inoa?/ What your name? (Omitting 'is'). Can you please elaborate? Mahalo.
There is no verb "to be". So, yes, there is often no verb in sentences that are just equating two nouns or just giving the location of someone or something. I don't think "aia" is officially counted as a verb, though it act very much like a verb in sentences like, "Aia ke kī i ka hale."
