Other than the international ones (alkoħol, alġebra), we also use ċifra and probably some others I’m not recognising.

Is azúcar also sugar? Ours is zokkor. They seem related - but they are also similar in English, French and Italian.

Maybe albañil (constructor) too? Does it sound something like “albanay” (English pronounciation)? In Maltese it would be il-bennej.

Probably, but I'm not sure. Spanish is phonetic and more or less similar to German. You can probably check out the pronunciation in Forvo.com if you're curious.

Word, verb "alcanzar"?

Sugar is the best word

German - der Zucker

Spanish - el azúcar

Portuguese - o açucar

Italian - lo zucchero

Croatian, ie Dalmatian region - cukar. :mrgreen:

Bacon or some meat like that in Italian is "il lardo" and Dalmatians say "larda". Pure Italian influence and assimilated words during the Venezian Republic rule in Dalmatia and Istria regions.

I don't know how Fénix felt like talking about sugar during yesterday's match. I think I had mostly swear words going around in my head.

Haha, you haven't gone through what I went between 2016 and 2018. You learn lots of strategies how to handle stuff, including your level of sugar and nerves. :mrgreen:

A grammar guide to Maltese for Italians has been published, some 35 years after a linguist who lived near the port in Catania heard people speaking a strange language and, often, asking to buy “ċikkulata” (chocolate).

Intrigued, the Italian professor soon learnt that these were Maltese people, speaking their native language, and travelling to Sicily for much sought-after chocolates so they could smuggle them back home for family and friends.

Scacciapensieri for Sicilians and Sardinians

https://youtu.be/82xsVgQuY9U


In English Jewish harp or probably jaw harp

Portuguese and Spanish ; Berimbao
(Although here the instrument varies slightly)

Quite a melancholic sound ....

In Maltese we say biambo' but in our language it refers to someone who woke up in a bad mood
