More Information

  Regarding definition #2 – yank:

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.)
