To Wag. v.n.
- To be in quick or ludicrous motion.
Be merry, my wife has all;
For women are shrews, both short and tall;
'Tis merry in hall, where beards wag all. Shakesp.
I will fight with him upon this theme,
Until my eyelids will no longer Wag. Shakesp. Hamlet.
- To go; to be moved.
I will provoke him to't, or let him wag. Shakespeare.
Her charms she mutter'd o'er;
And yet the resty sieve wagg'd ne'er the more:
I wept for woe. Dryden's Theocritus.
