Is it possible to say that a 'chipped mug' is a mug which is 'spoiled on its border'? or should I use other words, for example 'rim', or 'edge' instead of 'border'? Is 'spoiled' right in this context?
Thank you very much.
"spoiled" would not work in this context. we use "spoiled" to mean more like "rotten" or more figuratively, a person that always gets what they want (like a "spoiled/spoilt child whose parents give them everything they ask for")
glasses, mugs and cups have "rims". you could say a broken or damaged rim instead. but i think "chipped" fits better, and you're more likely to use it in a context involving dishes.
