How do you use pau? Is like if you ask somebody how they are and they give an answer which you do not know how to interpret, so you say "I am sorry" in a slightly questioning intonation (because you are unsure whether that is the appropriate reponse)?

>> No.829  

"pau" is normally used at the beginning of a sentence to warn the listener that the sentence is a question. The actual question word may not appear close to the beginning of the sentence, and without "pau" the listener may start thinking you are making a claim.

If you don't know how to interpret what someone has said, you say "ki'a". (If you just didn't hear well what they said, you say "ke'o".)
