(1) Wahanga Tuarua - Homai etc - Actions
Use of Hoatu
We have already looked at homai, which is give me. If we want something given to someone else, we use hoatu with the following
Give the cup to Mere = Hoatu te ipu ki a Mere
It is important to write the "ki a"
as two separate words, for writing it as one word changes the meaning of the sentence. The "ki" means "to" and the "a" goes
before a name, but we will work with these in depth a bit later on.
