ʻumikumamalua and ʻumikumalua are both correct. ʻUmikumamalua is the older pronunciation usually used in biblical text Most speakers use the short form

I believe right answer is " umikūmālua".

Per the Pūkuʻi-Elbert dictionary, there is no kahakō over the first u in that infix - ‘umikumamālua

This is said in English by no one. This is redundant. 12o clock noon is redundant.

Well, obviously the sun wouldn't be out at 12 midnight but I think the point is to identify which 12:00 you're talking about.

What's wrong with "The sun is hot at 12 o`clock midday"?
