We cooked a big turkey. Dad cooked the turkey this year. After 6 hours, the turkey was finally ready.

(Is each turkey a large bird or meat from a turkey in the sentence?)

• English -

In the first two places in those sentences, "the turkey" refers to the large bird. The last one could refer to either, but is probably referring to the meat.
