There are various types of meat that can be ordered in restaurants. Pork is the meat from pigs/hogs.

Amy, my knowledge are still limited by 'meat of pigs' and 'pig('s) meat'.
Is it also possible to use 'meat pigs'? (or it's just a typo)

Ah, yes... 'from'. Thanks, Alan.
Another 'unnatural' use of preposition for me to be learnt...

In my first language 'from' can be used only in the case of extraction or obtaining by using some special (for example, chemical) technogical process.
And never for fresh meat. Just 'meat of bear', for example, - for bear meat, bear's flesh.

Hmm. Hopefully, you use 'flesh of (an) apple', not 'from apple'...

Hi Tamara

I've now corrected my typo. :wink:

Yes, you can say "the flesh of an apple" but I'd say it's not used particularly often.

Instead of 'meat of/from a bear', I'd simply say 'bear meat' :D

Hello Am,

"Pork" is meat from certain parts of a pig.

"It's a shame!" describes a situation.

"What a shame!" is your response to a situation.

In both cases, you are sorry that the situation occurred.

Best wishes,

I'm not sure I understand your question, Amiranow.

The basic meaning of the word 'pork' was given at the beginning of this thread.
pork

I can't think of any way that the words 'pork' and 'shame' might be interchangeable.
When people say "It's a shame", the word 'shame' usually means something similar to 'great disappointment'.
shame

Hi Amiranow,

You say: It's a shame when you regret what has happened or is happening. It's similar to: It's a pity.
