Ter term 'pin' refers to movement from one location to another, in a more directed and purposeful way than 'hulta'. As a noun it refers to movbement or a move. As a verb, it is a skurun verb for to move an object, with an ergative mover and an absolutive thing moved. It contrasts with typical verbs of motion which are usually noxaj, and generally doesn't refer to self-directed motion or motion as a neutral fact. As such, it is generally not used in an idiomatically reflexive sense in the antipassive, which is a common learner error.
