"How is Kaunakakai's weather today?"

Translation:Pehea ke anilā o Kaunakakai i kēia lā?

December 11, 2018



Kaunakakai in Maui County, Hawaiʻi. It is the largest town on the island of Molokaʻi.


And adjacent to Kalawao County


In English, if I ask "how's the weather in Hilo?" the assumption is that I'm referring to the current weather. Colloquially could I just use "Pehea ke anilā o Kaunakakai" or is the "i kēia lā" necessary?


I think it depends a lot on context. Say you live in Boston and someone in San Francisco calls and asks, as a part of a casual conversation, "Howʻs the weather in Boston?" I think itʻs assumed that theyʻre asking about the current weather. However, if you live in Honolulu and have a friend in Boston who is thinking about visiting or moving to Honolulu and they ask "How is the weather in Honolulu?" they might be asking about the weather in general, over the course of the seasons. So I think it depends on whether you think it can be assumed via context or if you want to be specific - Iʻve heard (and said both) in every day conversation in Hawaiian.


This is a good question! I hope someone will respond! :)


Whatʻs the difference between " ʻo " and " o"?


What's the difference between "i" and "o" when you say "..... o keia la"/"......i keia la"?
