WHAT DOES CART MEAN IN ENGLISH?

cart

Cart

A cart is a vehicle designed for transport, using two wheels and normally pulled by one or a pair of draught animals. A handcart is pulled or pushed by one or more people. It is different from a dray or wagon, which is a heavy transport vehicle with four wheels and normally at least two horses, which in turn is different from a carriage, which is used exclusively for transporting humans. The restriction of "carts" to two wheels has become less strictly observed since they were commonly horse-drawn, particularly for those pushed by people. The draught animals used for carts may be horses or ponies, mules, oxen, water buffalo or donkeys, or even smaller animals such as goats or large dogs.

Definition of cart in the English dictionary

The first definition of cart in the dictionary is a heavy open vehicle, usually having two wheels and drawn by horses, used in farming and to transport goods. Other definition of cart is a light open horse-drawn vehicle having two wheels and springs, for business or pleasure. Cart is also any small vehicle drawn or pushed by hand, such as a trolley.
