This is the place to post questions and discussions on usage and style. The members of the Wordwizard Clubhouse will also often be able to help you to formulate that difficult letter.
Hi you guys! What do you call a person whose job is to hold a lot of leaflets or brochures and give them to people on the street? Companies, restaurants or language centers hire this person to give people leaflets or brochures to promote their services or products.
Thanks a lot!
Leafleteer or canvasser (the latter particularly if they are promoting a cause rather than a commercial product).
Erik: Thank you so much for the terms. Enjoy your weekend.
If they hand out leaflets and ask for a donation to their charity the new term is CHUGGER
. These people are more often than not paid workers for the charity.
Signature: All those years gone to waist!
Bob in Wales
Geez Bob in my day a chugger was a bloke who could put away his beer fast.
WoZ who's been known to chug-a-lug
Signature: "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
End of topic.
