Question, why is 3 pm shown as "ka 'auinala" in this exercise, yet in a different exercise the answer is "ke awakea"?


It is because 'auinala does not start with an "a." It starts with an okina, making "ka" the proper article type. Barbara, you are really moving quickly in the Hawaiian language course. Have you studied Hawaiian in the past or lived on the islands? No Honolulu mai au. (I am originally from Honolulu.)


But, what is the difference between auinala and awakea?

'Ae. He haumana au i ka 'olelo Hawai'i i "mau" makahiki. 'Ola au i mokupuni O'ahu.

Forgive my grammar mistakes. I had to put some words in quotes because the spell checker substitutes English.
