maranga

maranga, v.i. 1. Rise, lift.

Kua maranga te aua‘i ki runga.
The smoke rose up;

Tē maranga maī ra tēta‘i ākā ika ma‘atama‘ata ki runga i te kiriātai.
A huge great fish was rising to the surface;

I te maranga-‘anga te pi‘a ki runga i te torōka, kua ‘akameitaki ‘aia i te aronga tei tauturu mai iāia.
When they got the box onto the truck he thanked his helpers;

Kāre au e maranga i te ‘aere, kua manuku tōku vaevae.
I can’t lift myself up to walk, I’ve put my leg out.

2. Able to be done, managed or coped with (esp. but not exclusively of tasks involving lifting).

Kua rava ‘ua tēnā, kāre ākonei e maranga iāku i te ‘apai.
That’s enough, or I mightn’t be able to carry it;

Ka maranga iā koe tēnā tua i te poupou i te tāki?
Can you manage to lift your end of the post?;

Mē ka maranga iā koe i te rave i tēia ‘anga‘anga, e ‘oki mai koe āpōpō.
If you find you can cope with the job, then come back tomorrow;

Kāre e maranga iāku tēnā tā‘onga, ‘e tangata manamanatā au.
I can’t take that job on, I‘m too busy.
