2. What is a ding?

Small dent or scratch

A ding is a dent or scratch in a material, such as a metal part on grill or a plastic piece of a speaker. Most people use it as a noun, but some may also use it as a verb, e.g., "He was grounded after he dinged his dad's car."

Ding is an informal term, but people in professional fields, like engineering or automotive repair still commonly use it. For example, a quality-control manager may remark about the dings in a newly-produced toy. Or, a Karen may notice a ding in her new cookware and throw a fit at a customer service representative when returning it.

Example

My dad got so mad when he discovered that Jake put a ding in his new boat.
