I ask what is the grammar of this command. I think of the poo as "Mai hoolili" and the piko as "kālā." If so, expected "i ke kālā" in the piko, yet only "kālā" appeared in the piko. What is the type or name of this sentence structure? I want to learn about it and why the piko does not have the "i ke" within it.
