Slog

Another four letter word!

This week has been a long slog workwise!

slog2

As you can see it means something hard and difficult to get through.  Usually referred to work but can also describe walking in difficult conditions.

It was quite a slog getting to the point in driving rain and a headwind.

A third meaning relates to hitting and I have seen it used a lot with sports. It implies a bit heavy powerful strike of the ball.

The batsman slogged the ball out of the ground.

Hence slogger.

Jones is better known as a slogger getting a high score in quick time than as a patient batsman with finesse.

Some of you might ask about slug. Yes. It can mean hit as well along with multiple other meanings best left for another day.
