    Question Chop & 'The chop'

    Good afternoon,

    I would to know the meaning of these two words, the noun 'chop' and 'the chop'. I have looked in the dictionnay but I'm still stuck with the sense, I stay in the fog. I don't like to have to relinquish and I'm sure one of you can explain me that in a simple way with some sentences for enlighten my brain.

    Thanks in advance for your replies (It's not hurry).

    Note: Do not hesitate to correct me, it's my pleasure to learn across my mistakes.

    Here's an example of the verb "to chop": "The woodman chops firewood".
    The expression "to get the chop" means to be fired from your job.
    "A chop" (noun) is a cut of meat.

    Hello Euncu,

    Are you sure 'learn across' is wrong?

    See you later on the forum.
