The sound of "s" and "l" are combined to create the initial consonant cluster, followed by the vowel sound "e" and the voiced consonant "d" with the voiced affricate "ʒ".

SLEDGE Meaning and Definition

  1. A sledge is a heavy, sturdy vehicle designed for hauling heavy objects or for transportation over snow or ice. It typically consists of a flat, rectangular platform mounted on runners or skids, with handles or ropes at the front for pulling or pushing. The runners or skids are usually made of a material that reduces friction, such as metal or wood, allowing the sledge to glide smoothly over the surface it is traversing.

    Historically, sledges were widely employed for various purposes, particularly in regions with snowy or icy conditions. They were commonly used for transporting goods, supplies, or even people, especially in areas where other modes of transportation were impractical or inaccessible. The use of sledges has also been prevalent in activities like logging, mining, and rescue operations, where heavy loads or equipment need to be moved efficiently across difficult terrains.

    In addition, the term "sledge" can also refer to a small, handheld hammer with a heavy metal head, usually used for breaking or driving in objects. This type of sledgehammer is commonly utilized in construction, demolition, and other heavy-duty tasks that require forceful impact.

    Overall, whether referring to a heavy vehicle used for transporting loads or a small, powerful hammer, a sledge embodies sturdiness, durability, and efficiency in accomplishing tasks in challenging environments.

  2. • A sort of carriage made to slide on ice or frozen snow, or to run on low wheels; a sleigh for riding on snow; same as sled.
    • A large heavy hammer used by black-smiths in beating out iron.
