"i" and ʻma" are interchangeable for the most part... how can you allow ma ka ʻaoʻao in some cases and require i ka ʻaoʻao at your whim... the so-called specialists in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi clearly think it is funny to dupe beginners using i and/or ma and kupuna/tūtū... technically, tūtū should be kūkū for beginners learning the piʻapa and the hakala... shame on you...

Please help me understand why "E hele ma ka ʻaoʻoa..." is incorrect. Are there some subtleties with i/ma that I do not yet understand?
