vave

vave, v.i. Quickly, early, soon.

Kia vave mai, ka tūreiti tāua.
Hurry up, we‘ll be late;

Kā vave mai rā koe?
Will you be back soon then?;

mē tae vave mai koe,
if you arrive here early;

E moe vave koe i tēia pō.
Go to bed early tonight.

‘E ‘uipā‘anga vave tēia i te ‘akaoti.
This meeting has finished early;

‘E kupenga vave tēia i te pē.
This net has soon rotted;

Nō te vave iā koe, nō reira kua manako au e i nā runga mai koe i te pātikara matīni.
You were early, that is why I thought you had come on the motorbike;

‘E vave te ora.
The time has flown.
[Pn. *wawe.]
