Do most adjectives go after nouns, and what is the role of "he" in sentences like this?

Modifiers almost always follow the subject. Itʻs best not to use conventional parts of speech to describe Hawaiian because any given word can often be used as a noun, verb, adjective or adverb.

he = a/an

he haumāna = a student

ka haumāna = the student

nā haumāna = the students

He p'o piko 'awe

She is a tall student. Why is "She" at the end.
