Never heard that one before!I have a give-away today on my blog - come on over.
LOL ...I use the word 'slog' a lot as well. Confuses some Americans, no end. :-) (I'm originally from New Zealand.)
And that's what am about to do after I hit post .. get back to slogging!
I like it. Does it work like a verb? (I slogged all yesterday.)Or an adjective? (Yesterday was a sloggy day.)Or a noun? (I need to slog today.)If I'm going to spring it on someone, I need to know the rules.
Glad to see you are back blogging on a very regular basis. It's a hard slog, but keep it up!
Yup, I used to hear that one a lot.
I didn't know that was not used in the U.S. Amazing! I'm in the U.K. and use it too much!Carole
I never heard that expression, but I like it!
For an example of 'slog' in action, see my current post!
I've used it and heard it before, and I'm American, but I usually use it in reference to reading a very long and very boring document: "I slogged through it," or, "We slogged through the mud." So we tend to use it as a verb only, not as a noun,
I just found it in my Webster's New World (i.e., American English)Dictionary, and the first meaning is "to make one's way with great effort; plod." The second definition is the noun, "an arduous trip, task, etc."
Which begs the question .... can a slag slog?
