spot the difference!

preferment: the selection of clergy to hold positions of senior office in the Church (of England) (largely obsolete)
preferment: a preparation of a portion of a bread dough that is made several hours or more in advance of mixing the final dough

my recreational reading, you see, currently includes a nontrivial amount of Austen and a nontrivial amount of The Theory Of Sourdough. APPARENTLY in this modern day and age we don't believe in clarifying punctuation. as a result I am spending a lot of time being very confused about theology.

Okay, I'm confused about how punctuation could clarify the distinction between these two.

(Also I just noticed that the icon I chose on the basis of "language" is also appropriate on the basis of "food" :-) )

It took me a few moments to even begin to understand why one might prefer some of the starter to the position of loaf. :D :D :D

(And for some curates, if they were preferred to a living with certain ... difficulties ... they might be advised to pre-ferment.)

Augh! Hyphens are totally a thing! I'm not sure that the clergy aren't fermenting, though.

Exactly what I tell my students... XD

Funny how pre-ferment sounds French yet isn't a word I'd ever seen before (to me this is levain).

Thanks for this!
