This Tuesday Tip is from my personal experience this week. I thought I knew the difference between wail and whale, and I did. Kind of.

Most know that a whale is an animal that lives in the ocean. Most commonly the verb wail means to cry or complain loudly.

But did you also know that an informal meaning of whale is “to beat”?

Now, even though a  vocalist in a band may wail a song, the drummer whales on the drums; and lead guitarists when they thrash their instruments wildly, whale on them.

I learned something new this week and I hope you did too.
