(-a, -ia). Hook something out, fish something out (with an implement). Teia te rakau ei irau ki vao. Here’s a stick to hook it out with; Kare e taea e au i te irau, e poto roa te rakau. I can’t reach to hook it out, the stick is too short; Kua irau aia i te ruru taviri ki te niuniu na roto i te maramarama. He used a piece of wire to hook the bunch of keys out through the window; Kua tika te matau i runga i te rakau i toku irau-anga i te totara i roto i te vaarua. The hook on the end of the pole bent out straight again when I got it hooked on to the porcupine fish in the hole; Kua iraua te one i roto i te motu i tona vaevae. (She) picked the dirt out of the cut in his foot. [i-, rau3.]
