So you use "laila" when talking about something youʻve specified before, and " ʻō" when itʻs something that hasnʻt been mentioned yet?

In todayʻs Fun With Dictionaries segment: ʻō "1. There, yonder, beyond (usually visible or pointed to); cf.[compare] laila, usually invisible and anaphoric; often following ma-, i, mai, Graml 8.6). I ʻō i ʻaneʻi/here and there, to and fro." etc. So, yes.
