I know that polarization only occurs in transverse waves and polarization of light occurs as EM wave is a transverse wave. But sound waves are both transverse and longitudinal in solids. So can polarization occur for the transverse part? But we cannot stop the sound wave from propagating by any medium except vacuum. Because it will propagate through the stopping medium(like an analyzer but for sound).
Even if it gets polarized somehow(I don't think it can get polarized) then how can we observe it, since any sound reaching our eardrums will be longitudinal as the medium in front of our eardrums will be air, and so no polarization will occur in longitudinal waves.
See the 7th and 8th line in this image(source:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polarization_(waves)).
I am a little confused now.
P.S. This may seem as a possible duplicate but all other answers didn't clarify my doubt.
EDIT:- Based on the answers, it seems that shear waves can be polarized. So my question is how to polarize these shear waves?
