Pork Tenderloin VS. Loin of Pork

I've noticed reading many of the "pork tenderloin" recipes that many cooks are using these terms
interchangeably.  They are not.

A loin of pork or pork loin is the boned center pork chops made into a roast.  It needs to be cooked for about 30 minutes or so depending on the weight and recipe.  

True pork tenderloins are the tender meat muscle on each side of the vertebral column.  It cooks very fast and is a long narrow, round piece of meat.  

Comparing a pork tenderloin to a loin of pork is like comparing a beef filet mignon to a boneless beef roast.
