    Post word

    The following line is from "Flowers For Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. Please help me to understand the meaning of the sentence.

    "Gimpy hollers at me all the time when I do somethin rong, but he reely likes me because hes my frend."

    I read it like -Gimpy hollers at me all the time when I do something wrong, but he realy likes me because he is my friend.

    I don't know the word "holler". Would you help me here? THANKS

    Re: word

    Your rendering is correct. To holler is to call out loudly. In this case, it suggests he criticizes him loudly.
