EtymologyEdit

From Hungarian paprika, from Serbo-Croatian pàprika, from pȁpar, from Proto-Slavic *pьpьrь, from Latin piper, from Ancient Greek πέπερι(péperi, pepper), from Sanskrit पिप्पलि(pippali, long pepper).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈpaprika/, /ˈpaprɪka/

NounEdit

Paprika m, f ‎(genitive Paprika or Paprikas, plural Paprika or Paprikas)

  1. (chiefly masculine) paprika (spice)
  2. (chiefly feminine) bell pepper

Usage notesEdit

  • The genitive is (der) Paprika in feminine use, and (des) Paprika or (des) Paprikas in masculine use.
  • The plural is most often unchanged Paprika when preceded by an article, determiner, or numeral, and most often Paprikas when standing alone. This distinction is just a tendency, however.
