"Your grandmother calls the school in the morning."
Translation:Kelepona kou tūtū wahine i ke kula i ke kakahiaka.
lokelaHilo is correct. More specifically, when the missionaries came to Hawai'i and first tried to create a written language for the oral language of the Hawaiian islands, they decided (for ease of documentation) to pair down the letters that were interchangeable depending on region/dialect.
K <-> T W <-> V
An example of which is the name of the land of origin for Hawaiians, "Kahiki". When using "t's" you end up with "Tahiti", which is where the crew of the Hokule'a often sails to from Hawai'i using only ancient Hawaiian sailing/navigation techniques.
TLDR: "T" & "V" exist in the Hawaiian language. They just weren't included in the original formation of the written version of it because that would have taken more effort from the missionaries.
And that's a bit of Hawaiian history to tie into our collective learning of ka 'olelo Hawai'i.
E mālama pono kākou!
My answer was: Kelepono kou tūtū wahine i ke kula i ke kakahiaka.
The response was: Another correct solution: Kelepona kou tūtū wahine i ke kula i ke kakahiaka.
?? Anyone see a difference that I'm not seeing? This isn't the first time I have seen no discernible difference. ?? LOL...at least it was counted correct ...as was the identical twin of an answer.
Also: o ke kakahiaka vs i ke kakahiaka (or the other divisions of a day)
Do you use 'i' when it's part of the sentence "call in the morning"
And use 'o' when it's a part of identifying the time like: hola 'ewalu o ke ahiahi ......??
That's my current working theory....any hints? Thanks!
Hi Susan. Just a little note for you. My uncles and aunts (ages range from 67 to 90 years old) still refer to their grandmother as tutu wahine. It is an affectionate term they use for their grandmother during their conversations. Kapunahine makes sense as well. But tutu wahine seems to be acceptable by them as well.
I don't know about her lessons, but I haven't been taught the word for "grandmother" that she is talking about yet. If she hasn't, but just is familiar with the word already, maybe that's why it's being counted wrong bc it hasn't been introduced in lessons yet. Personally, I think I would prefer being called "Tutu". Here I'm "Mimi" & I love hearing my grandaughters call me by this.
