What Does stick Mean

Originating in the Latin palus , a stick is an elongated piece of a solid material that is usually in the shape of a cylinder so that it is easy to handle. Its uses are very diverse and depend on the context .

Sometimes a pole can be a rod or pole that is used to tie, hold or mark something. For example: "I am going to tie the horse to that stick while we eat" , "If you stick a stick in the pot, you will make the plant grow upright" , "I tripped over a stick that was on the edge of the street to prevent vehicles go up to the sidewalk ” .
The stick can also be used as a weapon , taking advantage of the fact that it is usually made with blunt materials such as wood: "The young man was hit on the head with a stick" , "We tried to defend ourselves with sticks, but the criminals had firearms" , " When the stick hit his arm, he could hear the sound of the bone breaking . "

The sticks, on the other hand, can be used like a handle to manipulate various tools : “I need a longer stick for the dryer” , “Please, make a note on the shopping list that we must buy a new stick for the broom ” .
