The AXZ also enlisted it for its common meaning in biology, the deliberate growth of a microorganism for scientific or biotechnological purposes.


As a noun, 'kultur' is refers to either the human cultral meanings described above, or to an instance of growing a microbiological culture.


Kultur is rarely used as a verb outside science. Its official correct usage is as a transitive skurun verb meaning to grow a culture where the ergative subject is the entity arrnaging the growth or possibly a medium or vessel in which the growth occurs, and the absolutive object is the thing grown. It also has a slangy colloquial sense where it is uses as an intransitive pali verb meaning to be refined an culktured, in a positive sense.


The modifier form 'kulturys' can mean either cultural or cultured, in a human sense, or originating from a microbial culture in a scientific or industrial sense.
