Word: Lid

Lid is a noun.

It is a removable top or cover for the opening of a jar or pot. “Can you put the lid on the pot, it will boil quicker”

It is also used to describe the maximum money that someone is willing to spend. “The spending lid on this project is £20,000”

In slang lid is a hat or helmet. “If your riding your motorbike, you must wear your lid”
