    pooled juices

    Dear teachers,

    Recently I read two different articles in two different newspapers. I got into trouble in the face of a puzzling term, namely "pooled juices".

    "Who,"they'll ask" goes to the most expensive prix fixe restaurant in the city and orders chickens?"
    "Anyone you answer, who craves the juiciest, most delicately flavored fowl-a milk -fed poulard, actually, raised on a small Pennsylvania farm-with herbs stuffed under the skin, spit-roasted to a golden crispness, and served over toasted, garlic rubbed county bread that soaks up the precious pooled juices."


    "It was already sliced, and the waiter buckled down to the familiar Luger ritual, putting some fillet and some sirloin on each plate, then spooning the pooled juices."

    I know that "pool" have many different meaning, but I guess that a question of present interest is only one meaning, namely "to accumulate in a body part or organ".

    From the other hand I have read another sentence (please see below) in another article, which cause the things go wronger.

    "The pooled juice had a pH of 1,2 to 1,3 and was visibly free of bile."

    Could you help me by the interpretation this term?

    Regards.

    V.

    Re: pooled juices

    It means that the juices [gravy, sauce - whatever it might be] have become a pool on the plate.

    Your other quote - about the pH - needs further context. It seems to be from a medical text.

    Re: pooled juices

    Hi, Vil.

    There are two uses of "pooled" in your examples. In some cases it means a liquid has gather in one place; in other cases it means that material of some kind -whether liquid or not - has been combined in order to assess something. It is the same usage as "car pool".

    Full context will tell you whether it is the first or the second meaning.

    I'm right now, enjoying the pooled juices from a tender, succulent piece of grain-fed beef. They're adding a superb bit of flavor to my baked potato.

    Re: pooled juices

    Hi Anglika,

    And yet, there is really and truly a fact. which goes to show the peaceful co-existence of a few polisemantic meanings of the term "pooled juices". The definitive synonymous meaning should have to be defined with the help of the context.(your beloved word).

    Thank you for the strict stauchness, which you manifested in the job.

    Regards.
