I thought that all those times people said something like, "John was whinging about having to go to school," they were just using an awful misspelling of "whine." It turns out that "whinge" is an actual word, pronounced "winj," which means the same thing as "whine," but is used by the British and has different etymology. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/Whinge
