What is the literal translation of "a i ʻole"? It looks like "and with not" which I suppose is similar to the meaning of "or" but not quite.
Wiktionary breaks it down as "and if not"
Why won't "mother or father" be accepted as well?
because of the definite article "ka" which means "the". "mother or father" would be "makua kāne a i 'ole makuahine"
Kinda a sensitive question to ask in the "likes" lesson :-)
seems confusing. Ka makua kane a i ole ka makuahine. Why or and not the same.
