  1. Miller

    A miller usually refers to a person who operates a mill, a machine to grind a cereal crop to make flour. Milling is among the oldest of human occupations. "Miller", "Milne" and other variants are common surnames,The Utah Genealogical and Historical Magazine, Volume 1 at Google Books as are their equivalents in other languages around the world. Milling existed in hunter-gatherer communities, and later millers were important to the development of agriculture. The materials ground by millers are often foodstuffs and particularly grain. The physical grinding of the food allows for the easier digestion of its nutrients and saves wear on the teeth. Non-food substances needed in a fine, powdered form, such as building materials, may be processed by a miller. The most basic tool for a miller was the quern-stone - simply a large, fixed stone as a base and another movable stone operated by hand, similar to a mortar and pestle. As technology and millstones improved, more elaborate machines such as watermills and windmills were developed to do the grinding work. These mills harnessed available energy sources including animal, water, wind, and electrical power. Mills are some of the oldest factories in human history, so factories making other items are sometimes known as mills, for example, cotton mills and steel mills. These factory workers are also called millers.

Examples of Miller in a Sentence

  1. Patrick Morrisey:

    We need someone who's going to work with this President to put people back to work, i think Republican Carol Miller understands that in a way Richard Ojeda can't possibly. So this is really a critical race, because as the 3rd District goes, you have to win that seat to make sure you keep the GOP majority and you prevent the obstruction that Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and others have in mind.

  3. Delle Donne:

    Washington Mystics ' didnt have Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman. Were a different team when shes on it, we got a really good Connecticut team coming in. Washington Mystics ' are playing really great basketball. Well focus on Washington Mystics ' and figure some things out. Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman was a huge reason that Washington Mystics ' were able to advance Las Vegas, winning the series on Tuesday night. Washington Mystics ' Emma Meesseman had 22 points in the clincher. Washington Mystics ' and The Sun played three times in the regular season and Connecticut won twice. Washington did win the final matchup by an eye-popping 43 points. The two teams havent played since June 29. While Washington had to work to put away Las Vegas, Connecticut cruised through the semifinals, sweeping Los Angeles in three games. After getting eliminated in single-elimination playoff games the previous few years, The Sun were determined to get one of the top two seeds and the double-bye that goes with it. After finishing with the second-best record behind Washington in the regular season, Connecticut accomplished that. The Sun have benefited by having a healthy year for their starting lineup as the team used the same five to begin every game. The Suns starting five of Jasmine Thomas, Alyssa Thomas, Shekinna Stricklen, Courtney Williams and Jonquel Jones all have the ability to have big games, making them tough to game plan against. Thats what coach Curt Miller expected when Shekinna Stricklen took over the team in 2016.
