[PE] 1 Directional part., towards the speaker, this way. (mai + directional la is written maila and often pronounced meila but not sung that way.) Come, come here, welcome; say, give (used idiomatically without preverb particles). [PPN mai]

Hele mai! Come (cf. hele aku, go)! He mai! Come! Welcome! Hāʻawi mai! Give me! Mai hoʻi kauwahi wai. Do give me a little water. Mai e ai! Come and eat!
