Thanks for your answers jdmcowan!

One more: why are there those 'ka' s in front of pipi and i'a? There is no 'the' in the English.

You've found the edge of my knowledge. I don't know the answer to that question and often get this wrong myself.

That was my question as well. Unfortunately the grammar doesn’t really help here, although it does say the kaʻi is used in some places we don’t in English:
