FRESH-3: meaning and examples


So far we have seen that the English adjective fresh can mean:

Monday: recently produced or picked food that is not frozen, dried or preserved in tins or cans.
Tuesday: new or different in a way that replaces something.

Today's meaning is: made or experienced recently.

Example 1:
What you just said is very interesting. Let me write it down while it's still fresh in my mind.

Example 2:
The police were able to find the killer because they saw the fresh tracks that he had left in the snow.

There is also a related expression to indicate that you have recently finished a supply of something:


Example 3:
Tony: Would you be so kind as to bring me a cup of tea?
George: I'm sorry Tony; we're fresh out of tea! Would you like a beer?
