  5. "Yes, I did watch the game."

"Yes, I did watch the game."

Translation:ʻAe, ua nānā nō au i ka pāʻani.

December 17, 2019



adv. An affirmative particle; truly; indeed; even so. 4 An intensive, strengthening the idea, connected both with verbs and nouns.



Surely this english sentence can also be correctly translated without the "nō"? "ʻAe, ua nānā nō au i ka pāʻani."

An annoying feature of this lesson is that so few alternate but equally correct translations are accepted. I hope these are being added.


How do you know if you should use ho'okūkū or pā'ani for the word game? They both mean game but are not synonyms, apparently.
