I thought this should be "Going to the concert will be fun!"

Aloha e @3CelticVikings , This is actually an equational sentence pattern. The same form as "Wela kēia lā." Today is hot.

  • "E leʻaleʻa ana" = "ka ʻaha mele"
  • "Will become fun (the state of being)" = "the concert"

"Going to the concert will be fun!" would be something like: "E leʻaleʻa ana ka hele ʻia i ka ʻaha mele!"

Hope this helps! If someone has a comment or correction for me, please reply~~ :3

E ….. ana

le'ale'a = fun

E le'ale'a ana

I'm having a little trouble with this using "e _ ana" with an adjective - is that a common construction? Something will be X in the future?
