"Did you bring your lunch pail?"

Translation:Ua lawe ʻoe i ke kini ʻaiō?

Why is it KE kino aio if it's YOUR lunch pail?


I noticed that too. DL does a lot to reflect the common usage without becoming too colloquial. I think it is normal to assume the lunch pail is yours, and it is a bit awkward in English to say "the" lunch pail, but not awkward at all in Hawaiian.
