      Yes, exactly. Wrangle = wangle, to anyone in this area. Here in the SW part of the U.S., it would be commonly understood which definition was being used based on the context or circumstance of the conversation.

    1] Ok except - parents' - note the apostrophe.

    2] Ok, but note that "wangle" is fairly informal. You could also use "wheedle".

    3] OK except - bridge - no 's'. Personally I might use "across the world", not "globe", but that is a matter of style, not fact.

    4] "The invention of mobile phones...." Note that "discovery" is something you find, "invention" is something which did not exist before somebody invented it.
