Culm

One thought on “Culm

  1. According to Websters Dictionary, culm is various types of grass growing in a single area. It also is used to describe coal dust. I found this interesting since Jim works in the coal mines. Maybe Olsen used the word to describe both definitions. Another strange word that is repeated in the novel is tipple. It means liquor; just in case anybody else wanted to know that too. 🙂
