Grunt

1.An alternative name for the American pudding 'Slump'.

2.The common English name for several members of the 'Haemulidae' fish family. These mainly live in the Pacific Ocean, but 'Haemulon Album' (generally called Margate) - and the grunting noise they produce is most noticeable when they are caught. It's produced by their teeth grinding together, but accentuated by an air bladder, which acts as a resonance chamber.
