The word "kita" stands for the phrase "ko ka". The phrase "ko ka" never occurs in correct use of the language, as it is always required to be replaced with "kita" instead. For example, "Tatawagan kita." = "I will call you." ( "Tatawagan ko ka" is incorrect. "ko ka" is always a grammatical error. Use "kita" instead. ) If you are struggling to understand the meaning of "kita" in a particular sentence, it may be helpful in the beginning to try replacing the word "kita" with "ko ka"in your head (but not in text/speech, since it is grammatically incorrect!) to make the meaning more clear.
