Hi Listeners! What words would you add to this list? Let us know!
The words are really similar, aren't they? Thank you for sharing this information with us.
I checked it and the Czech/Slovak word for it is Pálenka.
Wow! Thank you for sharing.
I had no idea that there are similar products in other countries too. Do you know if it's the same word in Czech or Slovakian?
... Actually, why not? The Turkish word 'Gumusservi' (No. 8) was also listed and there is a Hungarian word for that, too: ezüsthíd, which literally means sg. like 'silver bridge'.
By the way, similar products exist in Czechia and Slovakia, too. :smile:
It's funny that you chose the word "palinka", because in Romanian sounds the same : pălincă and has EXACTLY the same meaning (double-distilled plum brandy).:smile::thumbsup:
Pálinka: Hungarian - Drink that is about 55% alcohol.
Abiocco: Italian - Napping after a huge meal
Sobremesa: Spanish - Staying at the Table after a meal to talk
