v.i., n. Burn, shine; flame, glow. E tamate koe i te ai kia kore e ka te are. Put the fire out so the house won’t catch fire; Kua ka te mori . The lamp is lit; Kare e ka tena rakau no te mata. That wood is too green to burn; Kua ka auai ua te vaie. The damp firewood merely smouldered; te aunga apinga ka, the smell of something burning; Kua kite matou i te ai ka i roto i te are o kotou. We saw a light burning in your house; Kua akameangiti te ka o te mori . The flame of the lantern went down; Kua tapu aia i tona motoka i te kaanga mai te ai muramura. He stopped his car when the red light showed. (See tarotokaka.) [Pn. *kaha.]
