v.i. Far, distant; distance. Kua mamao rai matou ki vao i te enua i u ei matou i te matangi uriia. We were far out from land when we ran into the storm; auraka kotou e aere mamao, ka ngaro akonei kotou. Don’t go far in case you get lost; Kua aere mamao roa tona manako. His thoughts went too far; I te mamao-anga ta ratou kai ki mua, kua manako ratou e kare e rauka ia matou i te aru. When they were so many runs ahead they thought we wouldn’t be able to catch up; Kare au e aru ia kotou no te mamao roa. Im not coming with you, it is too far; Kua ngaro mamao ua atu te enua. The land faded into the distance; i te mamao ke, away in the distance; Na Tuna te pei mamao rava atu i taku. Tuna’s throw was much further than mine. (See akamamao, amamao, tamamao.) [Pn. *mamao.]
