Photo of a boat's wake
A wake is a mark made on the surface of the water by a fast moving object like a boat. The wake is made by the water being pushed out of the way as the boat passes through, and the size of the wave can be very large for a large, fast-moving boat. Small things like ducks will also leave a wake as they swim across water.

Wis forWall

A wall is a vertical structure usually made from brick or stone. The sides of houses are called walls. Not all walls are part of a building, some are made as a fence around a garden or field. The main difference between a wall and a fence is usually that the wall is solid and the fence you can see through.
