Have you guys downloaded a special keyboard to get the Hawaiian accents on the words? My phone has only got the Spanish accents and I can't find much on Google Play. Duolingo keeps reminding me to use the accents and I can't :D
So I've noticed some nouns gain a macron when pluralized like "nā wāhine" but not others, like "nā keiki". Why is this? Is this just some weird exception that i haev to memorize or is there an order to it?
The vast majority of words do not change for plural. The words wahine, kaikamahine, and makua change. Haumana can add the macron too but I think that is not necessarily singular vs plural, just a variation of pronunciation.
