Monger

  (Redirected from Monger (disambiguation))

A monger is a merchant dealer or trader (as opposed to a pedlar, who is a traveling vendor of goods). With respect to professions, the term is applied as a suffix (especially in the UK) to specify someone who deals in a particular kind of good; e.g.:

  • Ironmonger: originally a manufacturer or otherwise supplier of iron goods (see: Ironmongery); now generalized to other metals and other household hardware
  • Fishmonger: a fresh seafood wholesaler or retailer
  • Costermonger: a (frequently non-established) seller of fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Cheesemonger: colloquially, a specialist seller of cheese
  • Fearmongering, spreading fear to attain a goal
