v.i.

    1. Rise, lift. Kua maranga te auai ki runga. The smoke rose up; Te maranga mai ra tetai aka ika maatamaata ki runga i te kiriatai. A huge great fish was rising to the surface; I te maranga-anga te pia ki runga i te toroka, kua akameitaki aia i te aronga tei tauturu mai iaia. When they got the box onto the truck he thanked his helpers; Kare au e maranga i te aere, kua manuku toku vaevae. I can’t lift myself up to walk, I’ve put my leg out.
    2. Able to be done, managed or coped with (esp. but not exclusively of tasks involving lifting). Kua rava ua tena, kare akonei e maranga iaku i te apai. That’s enough, or I mightn’t be able to carry it; Ka maranga ia koe tena tua i te poupou i te taki? Can you manage to lift your end of the post?; Me ka maranga ia koe i te rave i teia angaanga, e oki mai koe apopo. If you find you can cope with the job, then come back tomorrow; Kare e maranga iaku tena taonga, e tangata manamanata au. I can’t take that job on, Im too busy. [Pn. *ma-la„a.]
