(-ia). Play (as children do), lark about, play tricks, meddle or tamper with, -treat, misuse, spoil; damage, mischief. Kua kanga a Rangi i taatai e kua motu tona vaevae i te anga moina. Rangi has been playing on the beach and cut her foot on a piece of glass; I to te tamariki kangaanga i roto i te are, kua ngaa te io o te kaparata. The boys broke the glass in the wardrobe when they were larking about inside the house; Kua kangaia te tamariki apii e te puapii. The teacher had fun with the children; Teia te kanga meitaki na kotou, kare e kino te kopapa. This is a good game for you, you won’t hurt yourselves. Apinga kanga, play-thing, toy. E apai mai kotou i ta kotou apinga kanga ki runga i te taua. Bring your toys down here on the floor; Auraka e kanga ua kiaia, e tangata roto riri. Don’t fool around with him, he’s got a quick temper; Naai i kanga i te roi? Who has messed up the bed?; Auraka e akarukeruke i to kotou patikara ki te pae ara, ka kangaia. Don’t leave your bikes by the side of the road, theyll be tampered with; Kua pupui aia i te puaka no te kanga i te one kai. He shot the pig for wrecking his allotment; Kua rave kanga aia i te maanianga i to matou motoka. He made a botch of repairing our car. [Ce. *ka”a.]
