The other day I heard the word sheer describing a transparent gown (which some consider inappropriate for a royal engagement photo session).
Until then I only knew sheer in the sense of "being free from an adulterant: pure, unmixed" (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sheer), probably because it matches the meaning of German schier. That German word is, as an adjective, usually used in certain connections these days. In particular it is used for lean meat, which would be "schieres Fleisch".
"Sheer meat" sounds totally idiomatic to me, but perhaps only because I'm listening with German ears.
Googling the connection proved inconclusive. If the term exists, it's not used very often. So, does it? Is it perhaps a professional term?
