And lima in Indonesian = 'elima in Hawai'ian either..

Austronesian or Malayo-Polinesian connection.. I think

I used "Five eyeglasses are on the table" and it did not take, despite that "Aia ka poi ma ka lumi kuke" is acceptable as "The poi is in the kitchen" rather than "there is poi in the kitchen."

Might this be a case to open an alternative answer? I believe Aia can be translated as "there is" -or- "item is in/on."

Mahalo for consideration.
