The next time you’re relaying a story and in that tale someone happens to be walking… use one of these words/expressions instead.
I have to tell you some of them are rather old-fashioned now, if not even obsolete. So you’ll need to do some research to find out which are still current. Some might be particularly British, others might be a little more international, find out which.
BUT everyone of them has at some point in time been used as a replacement for the simple word —— walk.
Have fun. If you know any more please write them in the comments box below and I’ll add them to this list.
