Junk

,

Latin, juncus, from jungo, to join; used for binding, making baskets, mats. The juncus maritĭmus is useful in binding together the loose sands of the sea-shore, and obstructing the incursions of the sea. The juncus conglomerätus is used in Holland for giving stability to river-banks and canals. (See Rush.)
