yes, it means many stories according to www.wehewehe.org as well as building. "building" Hale. Building with many stories, halekuʻi. Building permit, palapala ʻae e kūkulu.


Youʻre right, hale is house first. The context of what type of hale is second. Itʻs how itʻs understood in the conversation I would guess. He hale nui kahi ʻāna e noho ai. A large house where he/she lives or a large building where he/she stays. Thanks for your help


Is waho the opposite of loko?


How do you differentiate when to use "ma" and "i"?
