    てっぺん top, summit

    ちょうじょう peak     (We sometimes use てっぺん and 頂上 as the same meaning.)

    もぐ to pluck (from a tree), to pick  (We also say もぎとる.) 

    おふれ public announcement  

    (Nowadays we don't use おふれ so often, we say 公告[こうこく]、告示[こくじ])

    *advertisement  広告[こうこく]

    若者 (わかもの) young man (young people, it includes femail.) 

    食う (くう) to bire  

    (Sorry, I don't know the word "bire". 食う means eat, but this word sounds a bit rough.)

    もくもく silent

    (We also use it saying like "smoke is pouring out" though the meaning is defferent. )
