"Kaʻiulani is the name of the movie."
Translation:ʻO Kaʻiulani ka inoa o ke kiʻiʻoniʻoni.
I put “aia ka inoa ‘o Ka’iulani o ke ki’i’oni’oni”. I think I understand for other postings that this is an equational sentence so needs to start with O. Any chance someone can tell me more about why my sentence structure with inoa and Ka’iulani reversed? Mahalo nui kakou.
It is possible to do it that way but it sounds cumbersome. People really would not say it that way. ‘O Ka‘iulani ka inoa o ke ki‘i ‘oni‘oni. but not really ‘O ka inoa ‘o Ka‘iulani o ke ki‘i ‘oni‘oni. It would be better as ‘O ka inoa o ke ki‘i ‘oni‘oni ‘o Ka‘iulani. but that is still not as common.
