I don't get why "the daughter of my sister" is better than "my sister's daughter." The latter strikes me as more natural English.

I just reported it.

Looks like a good lesson for the possessives "-a-" vs. "-o-." One link for "o" and "a" for two links or more?

I'm confused. Why is "my" shown two ways? -- "ka'u" and "ko'u"? What am I missing?
