Iaka

Glyph of the word 'iaka'.

iaka

  • (pron.) you two (2nd person dual pronoun)

He hala’i iaka uiui elea ipuke ima!
“May you live happily together forever!”

Notes: Haven’t had many adverbs in these example sentences, so why not have one sentence with four? That’s right: I just knocked it up a notch. Bam!

Today my very good friend Laura is getting married. I’ve known her my entire life (she was born seven months before me, and our mothers have been best friends since they were little), and I wish her and her new husband Steve the very best. I’ve known her forever, of course, but I also know Steve pretty well now, and he’s a good guy. They’re happy together, and I could wish for nothing for anyone.

Congratulations, Laura and Steve! I fully intend to eat all of the candy at your candy bar. I was a poor choice for candy bar guard. You will know this well in a few hours. ;)
