This can't be right. There's a question mark at the end of a statement. How would the Hawaiian version of the sentence be phrased to translate "Shall/Can we get together this evening?" so the punctuation is justified?

"Let's meet" should also be accepted.

"Are we meeting" or "Shall we meet" should also be accepted.

I looked for all of those in the word bubbles and found nothing available that might justify a question mark. Is there someone with better understanding of the nuances of ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i who might be able to shine a light on the phrasing?
