- Open out, spread out, unfurl, unroll. Kua maora ua te rauru o te vaine ki runga i tona pakuivi. The woman had let her hair down over her shoulders; Ka takauri to tatou vaka me maora te kie. Our boat w capsize if the sail unfurls; Tera te moenga e maora ua mai ra, e aere kotou ki reira takotokoto ei. There are the sleeping-mats all spread out, go over and lie down; Kua manamanata aia i te maoraanga te vai na roto i tana one tomati. He was bothered when the water spread over into his tomato plot.
- Open, receptive. Kua maora ua to ratou ngakau no te arikianga i tana tuatua. They were ready to accept (their hearts were open to receive) his message. [Pn. *ma-fola.]
