§ 7

§ 7.

Self is expressed by the addition to the pronoun of either of the adverbs, ake or ano, which may also be used with a possessive, (§ 18), to express own. In the latter case ake may be placed after either the possessive or the noun, ano only after the noun.

  • Ki a raua ake, to themselves.

  • Toku ake whare, or toku whare ake, my own house.

  • Ana tama ano, his own sons.
