- Catch the breath (from sudden pain), gasp. Eaa koe i ngingiti ei, kare au e taomi pakari ana? Why did you gasp, Im not pressing too hard, am I?; Kua ngingiti aia i tona ekeanga ki roto i te pa vai anu. He gasped as he slid into the bath of cold water; Kua kata te tamaiti maoro i to Puka ngingitianga. The boy doing the massag-ing laughed when Puka gasped; Kare oki toku ngengeti anga i ngaro ia koe. And my groaning is not hid from thee (Ps. 38.9).
- Stab, shoot (of pain).
