Impinge

I. To strike/hit/collide: Reven shall not allow the moron's voice to impinge his eardrums. II. To trespass: Impinge on Reven's property under pain of bullet wounds.

'Impinge' is an amalgamation of the Latin words 'pangere' and 'impingere', which mean 'to fasten' and 'against' respectively. Quite a new word in English standards, I think. Perhaps from the British colonialism period (19th Century).
