Examples from texts

She whined as she went, and her fear had worsened her limp to the point where she was barely able to stagger; her hindquarters threatened to slide out from under her at each reluctant, lurching step.
Приближаясь, она повизгивала, а страх усилил ее хромоту до такой степени, что собака едва могла идти; задние лапы при каждом шаге грозили подломиться.

The distortion of his chest cramped his lungs, exacerbated his movements, so that his respiration wheezed and his strides appeared to stagger.
Он уже запыхался, воздух со свистом вырывался из его искалеченной груди, и шаги становились все тяжелее.

He crossed his arms, reached down to his waist and with a grunt, and a slight stagger, pulled his robe up over his head.
Скрестив руки, он опустил их ниже пояса и чуть качнулся, когда кряхтя стаскивал через голову свое одеяние.

The roar of the guns makes our lorry stagger, the reverberation rolls raging away to the rear, everything quakes.
Выстрелы грохочут так, что наш грузовик ходит ходуном, вслед за ним с ревом катится эхо, все вокруг дрожит.

What helped to confirm Martin in his detestable principles, to stagger Candide more than ever, and to puzzle Pangloss, was that one day they saw Paquette and Friar Giroflee land at the farm in extreme misery.
Новые события окончательно утвердили Мартена в его отвратительных принципах, поколебали Кандида и смутили Панглоса. Однажды к ним на ферму явились Пакета и брат Жирофле в самом бедственном состоянии.

He came down the hall, wheeling crazily and lopsidedly-staggering blindly, if a thing with wheels could be said to stagger, slamming into one wall and caroming off it to smash into the other.
Он двигался по коридору, выписывая фантастические вензеля, прихрамывая – если только существо на колесах способно прихрамывать, – натыкаясь на стены.
