    'Haggle' means to debate the price of something. I have never seen or heard 'chaffer'.

    The natives had ample time in which to haggle and chaffer about the price.

    Huh. There is was in the dictionary. I've never seen this word before in my life. However, the dictionary lists "haggle" as a synonym, so I'd say "Nothing - except people are more likely to understand you if you say 'haggle' than if you say 'chaffer.'"

    Re: Chaffer & Haggle

    If they are synonym, why were they used together ?
