    heavy steps

    I have long been wanting to know what the meaning is by "walking with heavy steps".

    Actually, what do somebody's heavy steps mean?
    Thank you.

    Re: heavy steps

    I'm not a teacher.

    Hi panicmonger,

    trudge = walk heavily and firmly, as when weary, or through mud
    shuffle – to walk very slowly, noisingly, without lifting your feet off the ground, to walk with difficulty being tired or unwilling to proceed.
    stagger – to walk or move unsteadily, almost falling over (from carrying something heavy, being weak , tired
    or drunk); to walk with uncertain, uneven steps, continually veering in direction and keeping a precautious balance.

    Regards,


    V.
