    nickbw: As many instances in English the word (verb) changes completely to Hurry.

    Don't hold back. Sounds like you've got something to say on this!

    Do you mean you disagree? Would be softer to say.

    Through the words used, ie huge and heavy, in relation to rush (a period of busyness). Just like talking about traffic that can be heavy.
