Yes, sauces are often meat-based. Think of a simple pan sauce you make after cooking a steak.

Gravy is a type of sauce.

I think of gravy being Sunday Gravy, i.e., a sauce made by braising cuts of beef and/or pork in tomato sauce all day.
Tomato sauce is a catch-all term for marinara, pomodoro, sunday gravy, Escoffier's sauce tomate, etc., and is not a specific type of sauce.

Just my opinion.

I think the real debate lies in Marinara vs. Pomodoro

Doesn't matter what you call it as long as it's tasty. ;)

Exactly. This reminds me of the drawn out boiling-vs-simmering thread that someone started awhile back. People get too caught up in semantics. You say gravy, I say sauce (or vice versa). It's just a name.

I agree. It's just another topic to Discuss about Cooking.

As a somewhat OCD editor and former computer desktop support specialist, I have to disagree It's much easier to discuss things when we all use the same vocabulary as much as possible. Can't tell you how many times I was trying to troubleshoot a computer problem and people would say, well that's just what I like to call it. PITA.

There's OCD and OCDer...I could describe your injury in medspeak and most people would have no clue what your injury truly was. A bruise to your cheekbone is much clearer than a hematoma to the periorbital zygomatic arch.

I do agree that computerese should be more standard, it is a young science. However, Cooking has been around since the dawn of time and many descriptions have been used for so long it's almost impossible to get a consensus on what to call a technique, etc.
