The boat will capsize if too many people move to one side;

vaka ta‘uri,
a capsized canoe;

Nō te pateka i te ara, nō reira i ta‘uri ei tōna pātikara i te ngā‘i ‘āmingi o te mataara.
Because the road was greasy, his bike rolled over at the bend in the road;

Kua ta‘uri te tangata konā kava ki tēta‘i tua ‘ē ki tēta‘i tua i te ‘aere‘anga.
The drunk lurched from side to side as he went.
[Pn. *tafuli.]
