In a previous sentence, the "i kē..." represented a marker ("i") and "the." This time the "i ke" is just an "a" - is the difference the kahakō? (just looking for clarification here).

In other examples, omitting the "ke" results in translating to "a". Here, however, "ke" is used, but it still translates to "a". Shouldn't the translation here be "the"?
