  5. "Class is at 1:00 pm."

"Class is at 1:00 pm."

Translation:Aia ka papa i ka hola ʻekahi o ke awakea.

January 24, 2019



Why awakea and not 'auinalā?


The short answer is that Hawaiian breaks up the day into blocks of hours as opposed to slightly nebulous "morning" "afternoon" and "evening/night". Ka awakea pertains to those midday hours, ka auinala more to what we might express as later afternoon hours ( after 2:00)


Aia ka papa i ka hola ʻehia? = What time is the class at?

Aia ka papa i ka hola ʻekahi o ke awakea. = Class is at 1:00 pm.


How exactly does the o in the given translation: "Aia ka papa i ka hola 'ekahi o ke awakea" translate to "of" as it is explained in the weather skill? I feel like the tips & notes are really lacking in information. There are under ten skills with tips and most of them consist of just one ambiguous paragraph. I feel like most people who find Hawaiian through Duolingo will just give up because of the lack of information given compared to other courses across DL.


Still no idea on when to use I vs O. About had it with this course.


I wonder, why 'he papa' is not accepted, while there is no 'the' in this question?
