English: two meanings of pavement

Tutoring English, a word’s true meaning might hold surprise. The tutor mentions pavement.

pavement: (noun)

  1. the material that a car travels on in an urban setting.

  2. a hard-surfaced way similar to 1., but alongside the road, for pedestrians only: the sidewalk. Such is the British point of view.
