  • noun The class of objects which can hold other objects inside them. Although, in theory, mobiles, players and rooms are all containers, the term is used in normal conversation to mean portable objects like bags, sacks, boxes and such. Officially, these are 'endocontainers', whereas mobiles and players are 'exocontainers'.
