'Blood letting nghĩa là sự trích máu để chữa bệnh (the withdrawal of blood from a patient to cure or prevent illness and disease); và nghĩa khác (đùa cợt) là sự đổ máu.

Ví dụ
Many years ago, she approached (tiếp cận) a medical-school dean (chủ nhiệm khoa) suggesting (đề xuất) that student doctors be taught the basics of blood-letting.

Labor has accused (buộc tội, lên án) the Abbott government of "blood-letting" the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, making it "impossible" for the organisation to do its job, by banning (ngăn cấm) it from investing in wind and small-scale solar energy (năng lượng mặt trời) projects.

Like Mnangagwa, Mujuru was accused of plotting (mưu tính, bày mưu) to depose (phế truất) Mugabe but in all this the veteran politician always assumes a distant pose that makes it difficult for anyone to associate him with any blood-letting, imagined or otherwise.

The weakness of the Westphalian system has been the reverse side of its strength. Designed as it was by states exhausted from their bloodletting, it did not supply a sense of direction. It dealt with methods of allocating (phân chia) and preserving (duy trì) power (quyền lực); it gave no answer to the problem of how to generate legitimacy (tính chính danh).
