What is the difference (in Hawaiian) between "this is delicious sweet potato" and "this sweet potato is delicious"?
He 'uala 'ono keia vs 'Ono keia 'uala
They need to add Hawaiian grammar tips.
The translation needs to be fixed. It should be “This is a delicious sweet potato”. The current just sounds off and doesn’t “he” mean “a”?
"This sweet potato is delicious," wasn't accepted.
Since the sentence is indefinite, could this also be translated as "these are delicious sweet potatoes?"
No. that would be: He mau 'uala 'ono keia. "Mau" is a plural marker used after "he" and "kekahi"
Aaah, that's good to know. Thank you.
You are very welcome!
Couldn't this also be "This delicious sweet potato?" I got it wrong putting that, but other examples seem to work like that with Hē (e.g. Hē lā ūmalumalu -> "A cloudy day")
No. that would be: Keia 'uala 'ono
Repetition will allow you to see the difference. Grammar is key here and if you don't understand grammar in English than it will make it hard to understand grammar in Hawaiian.
