    one simple question

    hello there!
    i have a question here and i hope you can help me out.
    is the word 'wag' equivalent to 'waggle' ?

    eg. this animal will waggle its tail when it sees its master.

    thanks.

    Not quite.

    A dog may have a waggly tail, but it wags it. On the other hand, Peter can waggle his ears, but not wag them.

    "wag" usually has a more restricted sense of movement than "waggle", which often indicates short fast movement.
