"The party is today."
Translation:Aia ka pāʻina i kēia lā.
Shouldn't it be "pā'ani"? I can't find "pā'ina" in the Hawaiian dictionary. Mahalo.
"Pā'ina" is what they always have in the section with photos of large gatherings in Midweek. And it's in the first two dictionaries I checked, but to my surprise, as "small party with dinner"! Later when asked to translate "He pā'ina nui kēlā" to English I wrote "That is a big small dinner party!" For some reason, it was not accepted. :-)
Interesting. DL accepted the answer I typed when there was a spelling error. However, if I spelled the word correctly, I found the answer was not accepted.
ani was rejected. Pāana was accepted, but marked as a spelling error.
From the Hawaiian dictionary definition for "party":
- Festivity. Hoʻolauleʻa (large); pāʻina (dinner or supper), ʻaha inu (drinking).
Pāʻina is in there, you have to use their provided diacritical marks, though.
