ʻO ka Pōʻaono i ka lānui How would this be translated into English? Maybe that information might give me some perspective on which English goes with which Hawaiian.

Also, what indicators do we need to use in order to know which format requires the Hawaiian translation in hawaiian syntax and which one requires English syntax? Both are used, and each time only one is acceptable.
