  5. "your phone"

"your phone"

Translation:ke kelepona āu

January 29, 2020



In this lesson, how are we to make the distinction?

"your phone" = kāu kelepona
"phone of yours" = ke kelepona āu

What is the grammar rule?


Im starting to think that its about as much a matter of semantics as what you just described and at this level of sentence simplicity may not be all that noticable.


They seem to accept both forms, but we need the "ke/ka" in front if we put the "ou" (etc) at the end
