You're a typical Pole
Yes, exactly. :):):) That`s good coz you know who you are dealing with, isn`t it?? That makes things easier.
As for dictionaries, I offerred a quote from Cambridge one in my last post: Again: greasy - covered with or full of fat or oil:
Yes, I know, you prefer to stick to the old, traditional usage of greasy - I have just checked in a dictionary from 1970-80s. But the language changes and today greasy includes full of oil too.
Who wrote the text book?
Two of the most intelligent ladies I have ever met - authors of my favourite textbooks for all four tier levels - Jenny Dooley and Virginia Evans.
my level of English is not on par with pawian's,
No, come on, you are too modest, I got my main English education in 1970s and 1980s so it is very rusty. :):) But at least I know how to use dictionaries.:):)
American dictionary about greasy1 : covered with an oily material greasy hands
2 : like or full of fat greasy french fries
but greasy fish would mean fried fish that has been cooked in too much fat
That is why I didn`t use oily so that you didn`t think the herring was naturally oily on its own. I used greasy to express the notion that it had excessive fat from the veg oil it was kept in in the jar. Ha!
