tanga

tanga, in the phrase

ka tanga atu ei (ki),
and now, on top of that.

Kā tanga atu ei ki te ‘apinga tei kitea ki tōna ‘are, kāre i kitea ē ‘ea‘a tōna ‘openga.
And now on top of it all, with that thing being found in his house, I don’t know what‘ll become of him;

Kā tanga atu ei ki tēnā mea tāna i ‘ōmai ei, kāre rava au i kite ē ka ‘akapē‘ea te ‘aka‘oki‘anga i tōna aro‘a.
Now that he has given me that, I don’t see how on earth I‘m going to be able to repay his kindness.
