"Where is your brother?"
Translation:Aia ma hea kou palala?
Just to warn language learners, "aia i hea" is the most commonly used version of "where?" in conversational Hawaiian, but it's usually pronounced "aihea." You can say it that way, but don't write it that way (at least not in a Hawaiian language class): Aihea kou palala? (Easier to say, right?)
Okay I JUST read in a comment a couple prompts back in THIS lesson that "Aia ma hea 'o Bill" and "Aia 'o Bill ma's hea" are interchangeable. It was illustrated as "Aia ma hea 'o Bill = Where is Bill? Aia 'o Bill ma hea = Where is Bill?" Can someone clarify the difference - and which is used more properly when? Because i just intentionally tested out this theory with "Aia 'o (name-I-forgot) ma hea" and was marked incorrect. So - interchangeable? Not interchangeable? What was the clue i missed?
