Have you ever seen a barge?

Hi there! Do you know the word below?

BARGE

Some said 'yes' and some said 'no', it's obvious :) I had to start with some question, didn't I? Anyhow, the word might seem easy at first glance, but it's not that easy... This word may be used both as a noun and as a verb...

As a noun, it may mean:
  • BARKA
  • SZALUPA
  • PARADNA ŁÓDŹ Z WIOSŁAMI 
And as a verb, it may mean:
  • PAKOWAĆ SIĘ
  • ZAPAKOWAĆ SIĘ


Let me give you a few examples from the Internet:
  • When she returned, Naresh, who had already barged into her house...
  • The men barged about her home fighting...        
  • Its not harsh - my horse could have hurt someone else or himself - not so long ago he barged out and ended up panicking and trampling all...
  • The north gable has a barge course of unusual depth and steep slope, which seems to indicate that this wing was thatched...
  • Here is a coal barge on the Ohio River, today.  
What's interesting, this nice word can be used with other words to mean something completely different...
  •  BARGE ABOUT - łazić
  •  BARGE BOARD - deska szczytowa
  •  BARGE IN - wdzierać się
  •  BARGE INTO - włazić do
  •  BARGE OUT - wyłazić
  •  BARGE-COURSE - rolka z cegieł
  •  CANAL BARGE - barka kanałowa
  •  COAL-BARGE - węglarka
  • DUMP BARGE - barka błotna
In addition, there is also a nice expression with the word 'barge'...
  • TO TOUCH STH WITH A BARGE-POLE 
  • (it means you can only touch sth with a barge pole because it is disgusting)

Make up your own sentence with 'barge'!
