Eric commented on afro's blog post Names of meats
"There's many variations in the way meat is prepared and presented. Thankfully, you covered the basics. Honestly, and as far as I know, there is no real name for snake or goat meat in American English Language besides calling it what it is.…"

For a brief example, I'll give you two sentences. One is written in the negative context. The other contains the positive. Both…
