Just curious, why cant we address the person at the end of the sentence? Such as "Turn on the light, Kaleo" E ho‘ā i ke kukui, e Kaleo
It was not accepted though I thought this pattern was introduced earlier in a different unit and I'm pretty sure I hear kupuna address us at the end (except without the "e") such as "huui, e pani ka puka, pōhai. mahalo"
Thank you for taking a go at it. I am still not sure. I went back to the DL dictionary again. I notice that all the examples of "i" are in the sentence "ho'a i ke kukui". Perhaps this is a standard phrase? Perhaps ho'a means turn on and then the "i" is the object marker. I think I need to get lessons lol.... perhaps find an online source or buy a text book.
