"The chair is in the kitchen."

Translation:Aia ka noho ma ka lumi kuke.

Can someone explain the use of "ma" versus "i" in these location phrases?


Are i and ma completely interchangeable? It seems like "ma" means on or at, ( like on the table or at the house) whereas "i" means in, like in the bedroom? Or does it matter?
