(-a, -ia). Fish for or catch with a line (not with rod, cf. takiri, nor trawling, cf. tavere). E tuku mai koe iaku kia aere kia i mai i tetai aai, no apopo. Let me go and try and catch a tuna for tomorrow; Kua motumotu te ao i to maua ianga i te nanue i napo. The lines broke when we were fishing for nanue last night; E aronga i koperu tera i te ava. Those people in the reef-channel are fishing for scad; Ka apai au ia koe a tetai po kia apii au ia koe i te i manga. Ill take you out one night and teach you how to catch barracuda; E aa taku i kite ana i konei, i toku manako kua i takereia e Toma ma. I’ve seen a moray eel here before, I think Toma and his friends have already caught it. (See ii2.) [Pn. *sii1.]
