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.
