What does it mean : "He had a "tongue" of hair." Does this mean his (remaining) hair is "tongue" shaped ?
Could this possibly refer to what the young men in the late 80's (my son being one of them) called a mullet? Most of the hair neatly trimmed, but a bit at the back of the head quite long, down to the top of the shirt collar, or even longer. That could be considered "tongue" shaped.
I am not a teacher.
Excellent thought, Sharon. I had no clue what a "tongue" of hair might be!
Ton of hair certainly makes more sense.
