So basically my question is can we call garum from Greece, liguamen in 
Roman times and murri in Al Andalus all the same ? All I see is Lazaro 
Lagosterna in 
*is that he tries to make a distinction but has no citations as Terry 
Decker will cry when she sees it. In meantime I do object to the editor 
who claims he must charge me $7 or pounds  to take 6 months to send me 
the information I desire and so far cannot even confirm my order for the 
Grainger article in Petits Propos Culineires. Around here we speed up 
sharing information with multi-functional printers that can scan and can 
record to email the desired info to help others out in such a  case. 
    In the meantime I'm with you Jawdiga if you're with me, why split 
peas for regional names so to speak and recipes when we lack  more 
substantial citations. The bottom line for me is that I am talking 
fermented fish sauce due to the addition of lots of salt ble, ble, ble 
no? whatever what you want to name it? Or do we have to pin-split names 
cause the fish is inside out or outside in when fermenting?
