More Information

  Regarding definition #2 – pull:

They called a bow a HurDagh chuHwI' "stringed-instrument hurler" (or something like that). Of course, the thing that was hurled was an arrow, not a stringed instrument. Over time, this got shortened to HurwI', and, from this, a new verb developed: Hur "pull, tug." Applied to a HurwI', Hur refers to the action of pulling back the string of the bow (before releasing and launching the arrow), but, in other contexts, it may refer to pulling the handle on a door to open or close the door or to pulling on someone's suspenders.

(qepHom 2020)

To pull a child's wagon (by its handle) or for a train engine to pull the train along or to pull an electrical plug out of the wall, a different verb is used: Hoq. (And, of course, when the pulling is sudden or if one pulls with a jerk, the most common verb used is luH "yank." luH can generally be used where either Hur or Hoq might otherwise be used, but not in the case of the bow.)
