"That woman is pretty."
Translation:Uʻi kēlā wahine.
The determiner should precede the noun always, and an adjective directly describing the noun should follow the noun.
The "adjective" in this sentence is acting more as a verb or action or state of being--because it is at the head of the sentence, you can kind of think of it as a verb "to be pretty", which is identical to the adjective "pretty". Thus:
- ka wahine u'i. = the beautiful woman.
- u'i ka wahine. = the woman is beautiful.
- ka wahine hau'oli. = the happy woman
- hau'oli ka wahine u'i. = the beautiful woman is happy.
