STUFF-4 (VERB): meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope you had a nice weekend.

Last Friday I said it was the last day we would look at the noun Stuff; and it was. However, today I wanted to mention that there is also a verb Stuff in English.

The verb Stuff means: to push something into a container or an empty space.

Example 1:
When my four-year-old son goes to swimming class, I have to stuff his clothes into a very small bag for him to carry.

Example 2:
I stuffed the papers into the envelope and quickly brought it to the post office.

We often use the participle/adjective stuffed (relleno) to refer to culinary dishes which include filling some type of food with small pieces of meat or vegetables.

Example 3:
On Thanksgiving in the US and Canada, it's very common to serve stuffed turkey (pavo) for dinner.

We also use it to refer to the play animals that children often have in their rooms (peluches).

Example 4:
When I was a child, I had lots of stuffed animals, but my favourite was a stuffed bear named Sleepy.

If you have any questions about stuff, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Have an excellent day!
