Ris forRough

Something is rough if you touch it and you can easily feel all the little bits that make it up, and those little bits are hard and sharp. If you fall over on a rough surface you are likely to skin your knees. Some things, like sandpaper, are rough so they can be used to scrape the surface off something else. The opposite of rough is smooth.
