Assalamualaikum and welcome to another edition of 'Ape Beza?'

                      The new IPhone 4S is a technological wonder.

as verb - to feel curiosity or doubt
  in sentence:- I wonder how do you manage to get excellent results every semester.

as adjective - exciting amazement or admiration
  in sentence:- Jennifer Hudson gave a wonderful tribute to the late Whitney Houston by singing 'I Will Always Love You' at the Grammy Awards yesterday.

In malay: bersiar-siar/merayau-rayau tanpa arah tuju
as verb - to go astray/ to move without a fixed course
 in sentence:- Students were seen wandering the halls.
                     He wandered off from the trail and got lost.
