‘īkape

‘īkape, (-a, -‘ia). Flick away, knock aside.

Kua ‘īkape ‘aia i te rākau ē kua tō ki roto i te ‘are.
He flicked the twig away and it landed in the house;

Kua auē ‘aia i tōku ‘īkape‘anga i te veri ki kō iāia.
She screamed when I flicked the centipede over towards her;

Kua ‘īkapea te kiore mate ki te pae mei roto i te punā vai.
The dead rat was flicked out onto the side of the pond;

Kua ‘īkape ‘aia i tōku rima i tōku mou‘anga i tōna taringa.
He knocked my hand away as I grabbed his ear.
[‘ī-7, kape1.]
