Pōʻakahi - Pōʻaono = Pōʻahia/Monday - Saturday uses Pōʻ--- so maybe itʻs consistent with that way? I wonder why lā is used over pō since days which are actually nights are the norm for saying Mon - Sat except Lā Pule/La Sabati which breaks the pattern of pō. Maybe the phases of the moon may have been how days/nights were called pre-contact with the outside world?
It asks, "What day of the week is today?" (or weekday) as opposed to ʻO ka lā ehia/What day is this? (i.e.: January 6) Thatʻs the only difference I can see. Even in English, Iʻm never sure which question is really being asked.
