Sinónimos

Origen

late Middle English (in the sense 'stab, pierce'): variant of jag1.

More
  • One of the most visible changes in society since the 1960s has been the number of joggers pounding round the streets. Few joggers will be aware that the original meaning of jog was ‘to stab’. The word is related to jag, as in jagged (Late Middle English), and in Scotland and northern England to jag is still ‘to prick’. The ‘stab’ sense was medieval; after that jog meant ‘to shake or push’ or ‘to give a gentle nudge’, and also ‘to walk or ride in a heavy or jolting way, trudge’.
