Good evening and welcome to Word of the Day! A journey through the English vocabulary and the words that piqued my interest, in WotD we'll be learning a new word for each working day of the week, bar holidays, unless there's a holiday special...

Today's word is:

waddle

|ˈwädl|

verb [ no obj. ]

Walk with short steps and a clumsy swaying motion: three geese waddled across the road.

noun [ in sing. ]

A waddling gait: I walk with a waddle.

ORIGIN: late 16th cent.: perhaps a frequentative of wade.
