Abstract

The term taste has anumber of different connotations. Most commonly, the word is used to describe the sensations arising from chewing and swallowing food. We ask how the meal tastes, or we complain that the milk doesn't taste right. We season our food "to taste." And we may regret the loss of taste when we have the common cold.
