v.i. Rise buoyantly, lift (intr.). Kua mangi te are i te puiaanga e te matangi. The house lifted when the wind caught it; Kua mangi te repo ki roto i te reva. The dust rose into the air; Auraka toou vaevae e mangi ki runga. Don’t let your foot up; I te kianga te vaka i te tai, kua ekeeke matou ki roto i te tai kia mangi mai te vaka ki runga. When the canoe was shipping water, we got into the sea so that she would ride higher; Kua kite mamao atu matou i te vaka i te mangianga ki runga i te kiriatai. We saw in the distance a canoe bob up on the surface of the water. (See mamangi, aka(ma)mangi, (aka)mamangika.) [Ta. *maa„i.]
