He spun his hand on the hypermarket.

A woman near him was almost hit by his hand.

"Don't spin. You will hit people."

"Don't spin. You will hit others."

What should I use? Are they the same meaning?

  • I think that you mean he swung his hand at the hypermarket. – mathewb Oct 14 '17 at 2:38
  • He spinned his hand in a circle. – e12345678 Oct 14 '17 at 2:54

    @e12345678: spin is an irregular verb; past tense is spun. – Robusto Oct 14 '17 at 4:23

    So maybe he spun around with his hand out or he swung his arm around. – stangdon Oct 14 '17 at 12:00

Both have the same meaning. However, a more idiomatic way of saying it would be,

You might/could hit someone.
