"I am fine."
why is there no 'o in this sentence?? its verbless so doesnt it require an 'o?
You're not saying "a fine/good" or "the fine/good", you're saying "is/am fine/good". - maika'i is being used as a verb in this sentence. Adjectives can be used as a verb and then include the "is" in the verb. You don't need to use equating sentences with adjectives in Hawaiian.
Okay, so in terms of grammar: when a sentence uses the adjective as a verb, the subject goes immediately after.
Do sentences in hawaiian switch this order often?
