I wrote E pela pololei aku i nā hua'olelo, and was marked incorrect.
Would you be willing to explain the exact use of "aku" when following a verb/command such as this?
I also think "E pela pololei aku i nā hua'ōlelo" should be accepted.
Mahalo. I guess it depends on whether spelling is a writing activity a speaking activity.
I would also like to know if aku is actually incorrect, and if so why?
Another prompt: "Spell this word" includes aku in the answer. Hardly anything distinguishes that one from this one. Here is the link.
My answer: E pela pololei i na hua 'olelo, an accidental extra space between hua and 'olelo.
"Spell the words correctly."
(E) spell correctly (i) the words.
E pela pololei i nā huaʻōlelo.
Could anyone please tell me, how to construct this sentence in the present continious?
Ke pela nei pololei aku ʻoe i nā huaʻōlelo?
Ke pela pololei nei aku ʻoe i nā huaʻōlelo?
According to Ka Lei Ha'aheo, p. 158, I believe it is : Ke pela pololei aku nei ʻoe i nā huaʻōlelo?
Mahalo nui loa!
