Covered with water, submerged, swamped, flooded, buried (under rub-bish). Kua ngaro te one kumara i te vai. The kumara patch is under water; Kua tarukuia te kakau repo kia ngaro meitaki ki roto i te vai. The dirty clothes were pushed right down into the water; Kua ngaromia ta matou pai uri tomati e te vai. Our bed of young tomato plants was submerged; Kua ngaromia ta kotou au repo taro e te vai. Your taro swamps have been flooded now; Kua ngaro taku one rukou i te tita. My rukou patch is covered with rubbish; Kua ngaro ta matou kai i te ngangaere. Our crops are swamped with weeds. Ngaro i te tanu, completely planted, fed up (of a planting area). Kua ngaro ta matou repo taro i te tanu. Our taro swamp has been planted up; I te ngaroanga ta matou one tarua i te tanu, kua oki matou ki te kainga. When our plot of dry-land taro was planted up we went back home. (See tangaro(ngaro).) [Pn. *„alo.]
