So, for those having trouble with the link, I'll offer a simplified summary:
- When joining two complete sentences that could stand alone, use a. Here, for instance, e holoi "erase (it)" and e kākau hou "write (it) again" are each complete sentences on their own.
- Use a me to join smaller elements of the sentence. For instance, in the sentence Makemake hou ʻo ia i ka ʻai a me ka iʻa? "Does she want more poi and fish?" the nouns ka ʻai and ka iʻa are connected via a me
- By itself, me means "with"
