"That Hawaiian woman is nice."
Translation:ʻOluʻolu kēlā wahine Hawaiʻi.
So I THINK I have a solution for remembering this... Please also forgive how sloppy this may look. I have no idea why it's not saving it as I'm actually typing it.
Olu'olu = Nice (Adjective) / Describes things
kela/keia = This/That (Pronoun) /
Wahine = Woman (Noun) / The subject
Hawai'i = Hawaii (Adjective in this case) / Location(*)
"Describe Which Subjects Location?"
- Nice - - - -
That- - - Woman - - Hawaiian
Describe - -
which - - subjects - - location
Pronoun - -Noun - - - Adjective(*)
I really hope this works and makes sense.
My phone can make kahako over the letters by holding down that letter until a list of diacritical markings for that letter pops up. However my phone doesn't have a kahako in the list of "o". So a work around I do for this app is I go to the wehewehe.org Hawaiian English dictionary and select the ō from their list above the "look it up" bar and then i copy it. Then whenever I need it here i just paste as I'm typing. Hope that helps someone.
Aha, TRICKY, since I am coming back to this after already learning kēnā also means "that" (close vs far) I picked that option to be clever :) but was stimied when it was wrong! It's because of the macron over the ā in wāhine, which I didn't notice. Gotcha! (or in the case, Got Me! ;) )
