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.
