Então, colocar o "walking" antes vai afetar a tradução como bengala? Não sei pra que ele serve, porque de um jeito ou de outro a pessoa irá usá-la para se apoiar e andar, seja walking ou "não-walking".

Qual a diferença? Seria algum tipo de bengala? Ou tá só de enfeite? :shock:

LOL :lol: :roll:

I see no difference between cane and walking cane. It is a matter of preference, taste, personal opinion. A cane has a bent or curved top that is used as a handle. It is used to assist walking and balance, but does not give as much support as a crutch for which it is often used as a substitute. The typical (walking)cane is about hip-high.

A walking stick rarely has a bent or curved top that is used as a handle. The handle is usually a knob of some kind. Although most are about hip-high, it is common among hikers to use one that is about head-high. The longer the stick, the more likely it will be called a "staff" or "stave". Although it assists in walking and balance, it is used less as a substitute for a crutch and more as a fashion statement or an instrument used unincapacitated people.

A walking stick rarely has a bent or curved top that is used as a handle. The handle (indeed, if it has a handle) is usually a knob of some kind. Although most are about hip-high, it is common among hikers to use one that is about shoulder/head-high. The longer the stick, the more likely it will be called a "walking staff" or "walking stave" (or "hiking staff" or "hiking stave"). Although it assists in walking and balance, it is used less as a substitute for a crutch and more as a fashion statement or an instrument used by unincapacitated people.
