"Her aunty is a short woman."

Translation:He wahine pōkole kona ʻanakē.

Can someone help me please? I don't understand why "Pōkole kona makuahine" doesn't need to begin with "he", but the following sentence does, "He wahine pōkole kona 'anakē".

also why does Wahine go before Pokole in the second sentence

I Think that the "he" in the following sentence is needed because it is about "a" short woman.

I dont have kahako or okina on my keyboard :)

'Okina is the same as an apostrophe, which can be typed on almost any device. The kahako is a different story, because if you are on mobile, some phones allow you to hold in a letter and give it a diacritic.
