This word is not exactly to hit. In the Circassian language уэн is the action a person do in order to hit and not the impact, For example for someone to hit something with a gun he shoots. The action уэн can be done with fists and tools like axe, hammer and swords.
- Is it "swing"? One can swing a fist at someone (and either hit them or miss them), or swing a sword, etc. - -sche (discuss) 05:37, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
