Re: jump rope
Jump rope is a noun describing an activity where children or adults jump over a swinging rope.
I have also seen it with a hypen inbetween: jump-rope
Do you want to play jump-rope?
It can also be a verb.
I jump rope every morning.
(similar to: I exercise every morning)
Re: jump rope
This is American English. In the UK, children skip - using a skipping-rope. Sometimes, in school playgrounds, a number of children play a skipping game using a longer rope with one child at each end. One after the other, all the others run in to the middle of the rope - once it has got up speed and try to keep up while the rhythm is increased.
