- 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.
- 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.]
