Strange words

Posted by shashi on February 7, 2006

I have come across three new words, which seems alike but varies in meaning. I knew these words but now I have become more familiar with their spellings.


A triangular-shaped piece, especially of food/wood
Push a wedge under the door to keep it open while we’re carrying the boxes in
I was standing waiting for a bus, wedged between (= fixed between and unable to move away from) two old ladies and their bags of shopping.
Wodge, wadge   
A thick piece or a large amount of something:

She cut herself a great wodge of chocolate cake.
He hurried towards the staff room with a wodge of papers under his arm
A salary
The smaller shops pay very low wages.
