"The mango and the pineapple are what I want."
Translation:ʻO ka manakō a me ka hala kahiki koʻu makemake.
Why doesnt the Hawaiian Duo lingo pronounce all the words. That is the part of what I love. Great way to learn by hearing and repeating. There so many differences in the short and long vowel and dipthongs in the language. Please add all the voice like with the Italian which I love!!! Really would appreciate a response, please!!
Actually, the verb is not at the end of the sentence. There is no explicit verb in this sentence.
"Makemake" can be a verb (meaning "to desire"), and would be if it were at the head of the sentence. In this sentence, it follows "ko‘u", so it is a noun (meaning "a desire").
The literal translation is
"The mango and the pineapple (are) my desire."
