finally know precisely what the "ớt" in "tương ớt Sriracha" means...

It's about what I expected.

Chili, as in chili peppers?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/delpt1

Chili pepper (usually the little red ones)... I've never seen chili, the beef stew thing, in Vietnam, so I would assume they just call that "chili"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JamesTWils

I figured that was the case. Every now and again, though, one gets a pretty strange translation on Duolingo. They could have been using that word to translate pho or something similar.

Mmm, what I want more than anything right now is some chili with coffee!

Tôi thích ớt của Cincinnati.

Did I write that right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/saturnwings

Nope. "Ớt" refers to the peppers whose degree of spiciness is measured via the Scoville scale. You're talking about the dish (I assume), and so far as I know, there isn't a Vietnamese word for that, but someone living in Vietnam now would need to confirm current usage.

Do Vietnamese people have these together in some form?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ComradeH

We are crazy. But not that crazy.

is "ot" chili pepper, or chili the food?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/micahdee

It is "chili pepper."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/micahdee

Since ớt refers to chili pepper(s), why is that marked wrong?
