Why there is no" 'o " involved ?

October 18, 2018


There is no 'o at the beginning of this sentence because it starts with the preposition from which is the word no. There is no 'o before ko'u makua kāne because that is the subject in the middle of the sentence, and it is not a proper name or the pronoun he she ia .

There is no "ʻo" involved because "ʻo" only goes in front of inoa/names.

Why isn't there "aia" at the beginning, as the sentence deals with location?
