pa‘a2

pa‘a2, mod.part. Perhaps, I dare say.

Kāre pa‘a au e ‘oki mai ki te kāinga kaikai ei.
Maybe I won’t be coming back home for the meal tonight;

E ‘aere pa‘a koe e rama ākonei kia tunu au i te varaoa.
Maybe you could go fishing tonight while I‘m baking the bread;

Ka ‘aere mai koe ki te ‘ura? ‘Āe pa‘a.
Are you coming to the dance? I dare say (or) perhaps yes;

Tēia tēta‘i parangikete nō‘ou, kā anu pa‘a tēia pō.
Here is another blanket for you, it could be cold tonight.
