Why doesn't this need aia at the beginning?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cos..

And even if it doesn't need aia, why is it not acceptable to use aia?

Actually it needs "aia" in order to be a complete sentence. Also should delete the "he" (that's only for amount numbers 10-99).

... listed as "affordable housing"!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MacKinzieRob

with 'affordable' in quotes or with a wink & a nod

No need for aia?

Numbers vs. Amounts (slide 3 )

Hundred, Thousand, Million (slide 7)

Note on slide 7 that "he" is NOT used with hundreds, thousands, etc., as "amount numbers." So not sure why it's being used here.

I don't know why my answer "he ho'okani kaukani hale i Honolulu" is wrong.

'ma' is generally used for locations...at/in/on...a bit more specific than 'i'

but I get your mana'o

Still not taking AIA


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Kamakea1

The answer sentence is a pepeke "He'o". There is a description of He'o and it's comparison with the Henua pattern (using aia) in the book below. Look for this heading: Ka Pepeke He‘o (Class-Inclusion Sentence with Implied Subject)
