cornhusk cornhusk  /ˈkɔrn ˌhəsk/

Definition(s):

  • (n) the husk of an ear of corn

Usage(s):

  1. Featured: baking pans made of paper, a cornhusk doormat, an open-top hamper-cart for the free wheeling of groceries, a plastic sink stopper, a felt eyeglass case.
  2. But at his best, his images become hermetic, despite their apparent candor; a peavey or a hanging cornhusk seems to brim with undisclosed biography.
