Roberto poured wine into a coarse glass.

L. Scottoline "Loyalty"

(Roberto is a farmhand in a lemon grove, Sicily, 1810)

can "coarse" here mean "simple"? Or, maybe, "textured"?

  • You should indicate the results of your research. Are "simple" and "textured" words that you found as synonyms for "coarse"? If so, where did you find them? Commented May 5, 2023 at 23:52
