hunt
hunt: [OE] Hunt is an ancient word, probably traceable back to an Indo-European *kend-, which also produced Swedish hinna ‘reach’. Its original Old English descendant was hentan ‘seize’, of which huntian (source of modern English hunt) was a derivative. Etymologically, therefore, hunt means ‘try to seize’.
=> hand
