I know what a pit bull is but what is a “bull-pit”?
Bull- pit means : an aggressive and tenacious person. I don’t know whether it is correct or not, please correct myself Sir, if you find,it is not correct.
Well, judging by the context I found the word in I would say it must be some kind of special room or part of an office space.
I know what a bull pen is - maybe it was a typo?
Nope, they use the term several times throughout the book which was written by an Australian.
