what is the meaning to wlf something down
Re: english pharase
Wolf something down means eating hurriedly, in big chunks and mouthfuls.
It may imply that the person eating is really hungry and has not seen food for some time but unmannerliness could also result in eating like this.
He sat there wolfing his food down since he had not eaten anything all the day long.
