v.i. Covered completely, fully occupied (of floor space or a piece of land which has been planted up), fed in and completed (of the cane wall of a house, or a palisade). Kua pururu te rau e kua kapi a mua i te are. The leaves dropped and covered (the ground) in front of the house; Kua akaki mai te tangata ki roto i te aua e kapi takiri. People swarmed into the enclosure and fed it to capacity; i te kapianga o te mataara i te vai, when the road was completely covered with water; Kua tanu ratou i ta ratou meika e i te kapianga kua oki mai ratou ki te kainga. They planted their bananas and when the plot was full they went home; i te ra mua, kua tanu matou e kua kapi e varu pa. The first day we planted them and finished eight rows; Kua koro matou i to matou are e kua kapi. We’ve finished building the cane walls of our house. (See kapikapi1, takapi(kapi).) [Np. *kapi.]
