Whimper Definition Synonym
Moaning means making a gentle, pathetic moan. If you`ve ever heard a sick puppy cry, you know what it means to whimper. Use the verb moan to describe the crying you make when you are afraid or in pain. A child with a fever might whimper, or a woman with terrible migraines. It can also be a name, although in this case the word takes on a somewhat whiny meaning: „The boy groaned when he realized he was only getting a cookie.” Groaning is onomatopoeic or a word that sounds exactly as it means.
