Glyph of the word 'toku'.


  • (v.) to put, to place
  • (n.) position
  • (adj.) placed

Li ia i ipe livu e toku ie nuva.
“Put that pot on the table.”

Notes: This is another verb that will often show up in serial constructions. If the object to be placed is already a topic in the discourse (or, say, you see someone holding a pot), you can dispense with the first clause entirely, and just say the equivalent of, “Put on the table” (ungrammatical in English, but okay in Kamakawi).
