There is a Lego joke just waiting to happen here.
Just missing the exclamation point really.
What's the singular for "nā mea pā'ani"? Something tells me I saw it in another part but I don't see it in my notes...
ka mea pā'ani
There are toys on the floor.
That is possible too.
why "ma ka paphele" but "i ke pakaukau"? (or maybe it was "i pakaukau" - earlier lesson)
They are often synonymous but "i" tends to be used to connote lative motion and "ma" tends to connote a stationary terminal point.
This guy explains it well: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/33314201
Ke pākaukau is an exception to the ke/ka rule. Just like "the plate" is ke pā and not ka pā. You just have to memorize it, I suppose.
Curious, why do we use ʻnā mea pāʻani vs just "nā pāʻani"? Is the mea required when weʻre talking about mundane objects..?
Pā'ani is "play." *Mea pā'ani" is "plaything" or toy.
Exact answer, told i was wrong
I find this sentence structure a bit complex at this stage
Aia + nā mea pāʻani + ma ka papahele.
