Whinge is a verb that means to whine or complain. It can also be used as a noun that refers to the act of complaining.

Coming from Old English, our word of the day is a synonym of words like ‘whine,’ ‘grumble’ or ‘gripe.’ Here’s an example of it in use: My job at the rattlesnake farm can be laborious and at time, dangerous, but I won’t whinge about my employment today. I’m sure all of the people out of work don’t want to hear me gripe about having a bad job.
