[1] to inherit to get given, or to be left money when someone dies.

[2] puppy (noun) a very young dog. I was going to say a ‘baby’ dog, but that sounds ridiculous. There are many other important words that need to be learnt to describe ‘baby’ animals. Cat/kitten, lion/cub, chicken/chick, horse/pony, etc. Unknown names normally take ‘baby’. ‘Ahh! Look at the baby elephants. Aren’t they cute?

[4] To wink to close one eye, normally to attract attention, or to communicate. To close both eyes is to blink.
