Mary Theodosiadou 's insight:

"Humans aspire to have their own distinct identities and form different groups. The same aspirations that drive us to wave different flags, root for different teams, listen to different music and have different cultures mean we'll continue to have different languages."

(EN) - Artichokes to zucchinis: a vegetarian alphabet | Simon Thomas

(EN) - Artichokes to zucchinis: a vegetarian alphabet | Simon Thomas | Translator | Scoop.it

"I’ve been a vegetarian for a little over half my life, and I know certain struggles that vegetarians have to put up with. But one area we don’t struggle with is language. I decided to take a mosey through various words connected with vegetables and vegetarianism, and discovered that the produce aisle at the supermarket isn’t just rich in nutrients and health, it’s also rich in linguistic interest… Here’s an interesting word for every letter of the alphabet."

Eliana Lobo's curator insight, April 4, 1:54 PM

Two things that have always given me trouble is how to interpret certain food names (particularly if the item does not exist in the U.S., and how to interpret certain cuts of meat (U.S. and Brazilian meat cutters butcher animals differently).

It's always good to know the names of fruits, vegetables and herbs before interpreting for a nutrition consult for a diabetic patient.

 

Here's hoping this guide with pictures will help you get a handle on the English nomenclature for a lot of the foods we eat.
