The hint for "hunoai" (pardon the missing diacritics) isn't showing. I assume it is supposed to be "in-law."

Mahalo for bringing this up. I've also noticed that a number of hints are not appearing. We have them in the system on our end, but there is either a bug with the display, or the Duolingo system just hasn't updated to show them yet. I'll contact Duolingo staff about it.
