Can anyone help me understand what "aku" is doing in that sentence? I'm still struggling with how "aku" and "mai" work. (I post this knowing some kanaka akamai will just post an article from a website that explains the whole thing). Mahalo!

Aloha e @Artikyulet, I actually hear this (with no context) in my head as "Read the words well [outlout]" or "Read the worlds well [to me/us]."
