“Most misunderstandings in the world could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask, “What else could this mean?” ― Shannon L. Alder

My partner Susan recently introduced a back-up word challenge regarding the term “plonker” a word not used on this side of the pond. The blog article, eventually published on Susan’s own site, was well received by our readers and helped us learn a new word to add to our vocabulary.
In the spirit of good fun and learning I decided to highlight the word “snog” for this week’s word prompt target item regarding definitions.
A snog is British slang for kiss, cuddle, or make out. It’s a word that is more and more common in American English as well as a casual way to talk about kissing.
It can be painful for kids to watch their parents snog and many of them don’t want to see people snog in movies either. Ringing cells phones would be the more common but acceptable occurrence.The American term “to make out” could possibly relate well to the British one offered here.
Contrary to popular American belief snogging is just kissing and not full on action. Full on kissing yes but a snog does not define any other sexual act.
Example: ” I got a little snog off him at the end of the night.”
Remember you are here among friends and realize that we have all experienced the same sense of bewilderment that you may have felt.
