v.i. Gasp, (the sound of) choking for breath. Kua nganga te oroenua no te piri roa i te kara. The horse was choking because the collar was too tight; Kua rongo au i te nganga a te puaka i te taomiiaanga te kaki ki te rakau. I heard the pig gasping as the stick was pressed against its throat (a way of throttling pigs). [Pn. *„aa.]
