These "where is blah blah from" questions are missing the mai. The answer should be "No hea mai kou ʻanakē?". It should be at least accepted if mai is in the sentence.

Is "No hea kou 'anakē?", accepted? N. Whats the difference between the two sentences?

Just curious - are 'aunty' and 'uncle' strictly used for blood relatives? Or they used as terms for any older women and men who you don't know?

They are terms of endearment not just actual aunts and uncles.

Is the word 'anaké borrowed from "unkle"? It kinda looks similar...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kelii....

ʻanakē is from aunty and ʻanakala is from uncle.

It should be "No hea mai kou 'anakē"? Or at least accepted as an option.

I keep pressing the correct translation but it doesn't respond. I can't move forward. It's happened before. Is it the app? Can i get some help?
