Fakaalofa lahi atu –

 

I apologize for not writing yesterday. These words will be for Day Three. I have included seven words, as these tend to be grouped together as “interrogative” words, and should be included in one ‘lesson’.

 

1.  Tau huhu = questions

2.  Ko hai = who

3.  Ko e heigoa = what

4.  Ko fe = where

5.  A fe = when

6.  Ko e ha = why

7.  Ha e fe = which

 

Grammatical points…

1.  Gender is expressed by the addition of “tane” for male and “fifine” for female.

2.  The plural is indicated by a word prefixed to a noun — either “na” or “tau“. The former indicates two or a small number, while the latter indicated unlimited plural.

 

Enjoy!
