  1. I find the different usage of English in different parts of the world fascinating. I'm reading Cole Parker's new story First Year - aren't we all?! I've noticed he uses the term 'passel' a few times. I can see from the context what it means, but it's not a term I hear day-to-day. We do have the word parcel, which is a package, typically for sending through the mail. An old-fashioned parcel was wrapped in brown paper and tied with string but nowadays it's more likely to be a padded mail bag or an Amazon card sleeve. So, here's my question: does passel mean the same as parcel - a bundling of objects together into one container - or is the meaning something else? There's a folk song by Steeleye Span called A Parcel of Rogues which shows the word meaning a group, in this case of people, although that's certainly not its normal use here.
