v.i. Used adverbially after akara look, in akara matariki, watch narrowly, examine intently, stare hard. Auraka koe e akara matariki mai ia matou. Don’t stare at us; E tangata akara matariki tera i te au mea e tupu nei i roto i te oire. He is a man who keeps a close eye on what goes on in the vage; Kua mou iaku ta ratou au peu tuketuke i toku akara matarikianga i ta ratou angaanga. I got on to all their tricks when I had a good look at what they were up to. [Pn. *mata-liki1.]
