V way prep/adv

The 'crawl' group

These verbs are concerned with moving in a particular way, physically or metaphorically. This includes:
    particular modes of transport e.g. pedal, row, sail
    walking in a particular way e.g. flounce, hobble, march, shuffle
    moving in some other way e.g. swim, wing
This is a productive use: any verb which indicates how someone or something moves can be used with this pattern.
