Memeʻa Quiz #5

This quiz is the third of three which will test (1) your ability to understand basic Hawaiian sentences, and (2) to add the correct missing word in each sentence from the answers provided. This quiz is best suited, therefore, for students who already know some basic Pepeke sentence patterns.

This quiz is one step more difficult than Memeʻa Quiz #4 because we have left out some of the helpful pictures in order that you focus on the written language to get a feeling of the context.

The patterns included are the following:

  • "something is somewhere or somewhen" (Pepeke Henua)
  • "something is in a particular state or condition" (Pepeke Painu ʻAʻano)
  • "something is doing something" (Pepeke Painu Hamani/Hehele)

We are sure you will have fun figuring out which memeʻa you should use to fill in the gap in each sentence prompt. Read the sentences out loud to yourself and try to get a feeling for where the poʻo, piko, and ʻawe are.

The vocabulary is drawn from lesson 0604V Memeʻa Content Words. There is no English translation for the sentence prompts, so if you need help working out the meanings, refer to the Wehewehe Wikiwiki dictionary portal.
