"Hey Kaleo, turn on the light."

Translation:E Kaleo, e hoʻā i ke kukui.

October 27, 2018



I've heard "open da light" - so, would e wehe i ke kukui be acceptable?


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"


You can. They just made the answer mirror the prompt where the name starts it. You should report it that your answer should be accepted.


Open da light and close da light is pigion english
