1. wind => vent.
- vent: English has two words vent. The verb, ‘provide with an outlet’ , came via Old French esventer from Vulgar Latin *exventāre ‘let out air’. This was a compound verb formed from the Latin prefix ex- ‘out’ and ventum ‘wind’ (source also of English ventilate  and distantly related to English wind). Vent ‘slit in the back of a garment’  goes back via Old French fente to Vulgar Latin *findita ‘slit’, a noun use of the feminine past participle of Latin findere ‘split’ (source also of English fission  and fissure ).
=> ventilate, wind; fission, fissure
