It was in the news, and seemed odd to me, that a word such as clip would have any significance beyond that of having a haircut, but apparently, it does.
Maybe they’re referring to the clip of ammunition for a gun?
But for us, a clip can be part of a haircut, letting the scissors loose.
And for those children who had a father who was a hard taskmaster, you would be familiar with a clip around the ears. It can just as easily be used, say when a car clips another car when the driver loses control.
There’s a horse that runs at a fast clip, and can be anything for that matter that moves quickly.
It can be a spring-loaded device that holds all your papers together. Or just about anything else for that matter.
You can clip an item from a newspaper, aptly known as a news clipping.
it can be a portion of a larger film or television programme, but to me, sometimes, when a series has a clip show, an episode where someone reminisces and we see clips from previous episodes.
And last but not least, clip the wings of those so-called high flyers at the office.
