Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A common name for grasses of the genus Bromus, of which there are about 40 species widely distributed, chiefly through the northern temperate zone. They are nearly allied to the fescue-grasses (Festuca), but are mostly coarse, and of comparatively little value. Chess or cheat (B. secalinus) and Schrader's brome-grass (B. unioloides) have been cultivated as annual forage-grasses. Also, corruptly, broom-grass.
GNU Webster's 1913
- (Bot.) A genus (Bromus) of grasses, one species of which is the chess or cheat.
- n. any of various woodland and meadow grasses of the genus Bromus; native to temperate regions
