How would you say "the tasty meat"?
At first I was mildly surprised someone spent a whole article discussing just this one potential cognate, but I feel like I learned a lot reading this, especially as a fellow cognate-seeker :)
Carne is meat. Res is more like "cattle", although I suspect that it's used as "beef" in Argentina or wherever jamusk is from. Beef is actually usually "ternera", at least in Spain. Technically this means "calf" (baby cow), like how we usually eat "lamb" instead of "mutton".
in portuguese meat is "carne" and beef is "bife".. I got surprised when I saw this snack bar in Jerusalem called קרנה (carne written in hebrew), asked myself if it's owner is brasilian... Or is there this word in hebrew too (carne)?
I think it is. But more like this:
*basar - flesh
-Arabic bashar humankind
- Hebrew basar meat
How do you do that? How do you respond to everything on the Hebrew board so quickly? Have a lingot!
Haha thanks. I don't get round to everything, but if I've already commented on a post I get an email when new comments come in, and if I can answer the question I try to find the time to do so.
That's a nice, romantic thought. My guess would be different: about 95% of restaurants in Israel are called in names that are mainly non-Hebrew; those in the business seem to consider Hebrew not sexy. Most often they'll turn to English, but it's not unheard of to turn to French or Spanish. I can imagine why "carne" would sound cool to them.
