Ground apples lol
My affinity for Hebrew just increased a little, now that I know they call potatoes "earth apples." Well done, well done.
Like the French "pommes de terre" or the old German "Erdäpfel"
In Swissgerman itz called "härdöpfu" which means something like "dirt apple" as well
Where I come from they're ground pears
Why can't is say, This is an apple or a potato? They mean the same thing in English.
I asked too
Because a quesion is meant. Your answer is not a proper question.
Why is a potato wrong?
Ze tapuakh o tapuakh adama?
(Potatoes is tapukhei adama.)
Pomme de terre in french means literally apple of the earth like Hebrew
I think the correct solution should be: "Is this an apple or a potato?"
'Red apple' and 'potato' are almost identical. Is that because the ground in Israel is reddish?
Is the plural of potato 'תפוחים אדמות'?
I wonder, is the word for potato in any way related to the Adam’s apple?
The adamah part means ground or earth. I think it's also the source of Adam's name since he's the first man to have been on earth and he basically owned it according to Hebrew traditions.
