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.

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?
